Hello Taylor Nation!
The 45th Annual CMA Awards are coming! Blake Shelton will open the show with special guest Kenny Loggings. They will sing the opening number. No idea what that will be. It should be something that makes you want to cut loose, I think. Because I’ve been working so hard. The show is sold out.
In case you need a reminder, the Sparkly Dressed is nominated for Entertainer of the Year, Album of the Year for Speak Now, Female Vocalist of the Year, and both Song of the Year and Video of the Year for Mean.
Presenting awards that night will be Lauren Alaina, Dierks Bentley, Billy Currington, Jake Owen, Kellie Pickler, Reba and LeAnn Rimes. Additional presenters are sportscaster Erin Andrews, actor Josh Dallas, actor Kellan Lutz, muppet Miss Piggy (well, she is a muppet…), actor Eric Stonestreet, actress Emily VanCamp, and actress Reese Witherspoon.
Here’s some rehearsal footage from the Bridgestone Arena care of Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley:
Here’s the Band Perry talking about their performance with some more rehearsal footage.
The Sparkly Dressed recently (like a few minutes ago while I was writing this) reached 9 million followers on Twitter. That is quite a milestone right there. I’m happy that I get some new followers, although not in those numbers. Sometimes just one new follower makes me realize that perhaps I should keep up this blogging thing.
