The 45th CMA Awards are about to cut loose: Presenters announced and first rehearsals!


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.

Coming up in the Calendar!

    1. I agree. I just found this blog a couple weeks ago and check it out every day. Nice site. Not a lot on it each day but you can see the latest news. Good for a blog that is just done by a fan. And I noticed he tweeted someone left a bad comment on something. That’s what I like about this site, not haters. I’m fed up with stupid comments by ignorant people. They have no idea how great Taylor Swift is. They think she’s just some kid who sings to girls. I’m a guy and 48 and I realyl like her. Take that haters.

  1. Did anyone else see the Miranda Lambert interview earlier on CMT? Her husband is up for Entertainer of the Year and she said she hopes Taylor Swift wins it. Amazing. I’m sure she won’t mind if her husband does win but if he doesn’t Taylor can. I’m new to country music. I never listened to it much but they all seem nice. Their fans seem to like to attack Taylor but the singers like her. Their fans should learn from their heroes.

  2. Two years ago CMA brought in Tim and Faith to present the Entertainer of the Year Award because of their well known friendship with Taylor

    ….Reese Witherspoon (“June Carter”) is a friend of Taylor’s, so I wonder which award she is presenting?
