Carrie Underwood said before the Country Music Awards, “I prefer to stay away from politics. This is country music, and we have 50 years to cover.”
She added, “So I feel like we’ll have lots to talk about, but I think it be more geared to just us and what we do and all these legends that we have and people that have incredible talent that we have in our genre.”
However, she changed her tune completely during the show, in a bit of dialogue with Brad Paisley that become a true classic. Said Carrie, “Also nominated — Luke Bryan and Chris Stapleton…” Shot back Brad, “LIES! Crooked Carrie.”
Said Carrie, “Crooked Carrie? And over here is another entertainer of the year nominee, Mr. Trisha Yearwood, Garth Brooks.” Answered Brad, “Okay, that one’s true. It doesn’t really matter what I think because this show is rigged… Bigly.”
Then Carrie made fun of Hillary’s “basket of deplorables” comment, showing an actual basket including beer goggles, ammo, camouflage gear and more. How much do you love Carrie for trashing Hillary at the Country Music Awards?
