Top Performances from the 2017 CMT Awards
While I couldn’t watch the awards because I am based in Australia – here are the top performances from the 2017 CMT Awards …
1. Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood – “The Fighter”
Keith Urban and Carried Underwood really slowed this song down for this intimate performance of Fighter. When the song did speed up towards the end it is like nothing you have heard before …
2. Miranda Lambert “Pink Sunglasses”
WOW! Seemed to be a thing of the night, Miranda really mixed this song up to with a slower tempo. With key members throughout the crowd wearing Pink Sunglasses including Jason Aldean, Florida Georgia Line, Shay + Dan and the crowd down the front!
I have never really taken note of the lyrics for this song, but I think I need some Pink Sunglasses now =)
3. Thomas Rhett – Craving You
After seeing the film clip for this song, I have really changed my mind about this song – I know like it!
With Thomas singing up on stage with some dancers on really cool chairs (never miss one of them after a few drinks). While the song is a duet with Maren Morris, she was no where in sight for this one! There was also no appearance of his little baby girl Willa Grey who has been on tour with Thomas this past week!
4. Florida Georgia Line & The Chainsmokers “Last Day Alive”
What legends! Playing at their new restaurant “House” – haha love it! Great publicity boys! Well done.
5. Blake Shelton – “Every Time I Hear That Song”
I think this if the first time Blake has sung at the awards show in quiet a while (it feels like that for me anyway). He goes alright in a suit jacket and jeans combo!
It was really an outstanding performance – pretty same old, same old.
6. Celebrating Gregg Allman’s Life – “Midnight Rider”
Featuring Jason Aldean, Darius Rucker, Charles Kelley and Derek Trucks.
Oh I almost forgot – The Opening Skit:
