This was the first time I've ever watched them all the way through. When I worked there, I was working backstage, and we got bused - okay limo'd - over to where the party was so we could get set up before the hoardes arrived. Eat a little shrimp, drink a little wine and get ready for all the wanna-be's to try to manipulate us.
I have never really liked Country Music. But I enjoyed what I heard last night. I guess it's back into the overproduced, bad for Country Music part of the cycle, but that's fine by me.
I thought that Shania Twain looked beautiful but wow that first outfit was revealing. Just go ahead and paint your body, for all the coverage that cat suit provided!
Did anybody else watch it? I'd never heard that "fishing song" before, but I thought that was cute. It was nice to see some familiar faces on television. I can't watch close friends perform on television - that's just tooooo creeeeeepy. But this was just right, for me.
Loretta Lynn's office used to be upstairs from CMA's. She looked really good last night and relatively unimpaired!
*sigh* I had a 24-hour bp monitor on last night, so I couldn't sleep anyway. Maybe I'm a little bit burnt out now, but I'm feeling just a little pull to go back to that life. The kids are grown up and out now, so what would it harm? It always gave my hubby a vicarious little thrill to be part of the industry. His job at the CMA awards was to sit in people's seats when they were up getting awards, and his job at the party was always to go get more shrimp and wine and crab claws for those of us who were protecting the cream of Country Music from the wanna-be's. We were ALL rude to him, but he didn't want to give up the show business. LOL
Okay - I'm done. *sigh*
