What You Didn’t See On TV At The CMA Awards

cmaawards

We were in the Bridgestone Arena for the 45th annual Country Music Association Awards (CMAs) last night in Nashville, Tennessee. It really was country music’s party of the year and even the celebrities were in on the party. Here’s some of the moments that didn’t make it to television:

  • Only 9,000 lights were handed out to fans for Martina McBride’s performance of “I’m Gonna Love You Through It.” During every break, the announcement was made not to turn on the lights until it was announced later in the show. Somehow a bunch of the artists got a hold of the lights and were playing with them during some performances.
  • Blake Shelton was late to his seat after the 10 second countdown to the live performance of Taylor Swift. He ran back to his seat right in front of Taylor almost 20 seconds into her performance: he was too busy talking with friends to realize the show was on. It was a pretty funny moment.
  • The boys of Rascal Flatts were dancing behind the wall during Lionel Richie’s duet with Darius Rucker. Their dance session included Jay DeMarcus dancing with his bass guitar in circles.
  • Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton both had their red solo cups on hand under the seats the whole show. During breaks they would take them out and drink.
  • Half-way through the show they had to start “please return to your seats” announcements because the artists were having too much fun chatting with each other to hear the live countdown.
  • There were no harnesses or safety nets on the ribbon dancers in Sara Evans’ performance.
  • Miranda Lambert gave every crew member and band member for her performance fist-pumps before they went live with “Baggage Claim.” The heat of the fire from the finale of the performance was felt even at the top rows of the arena.

CONTEST: Win An Autographed Copy Of Sara Evans’ Book — Our winner is Veronica, Congratulations!

Sara Evans has one of the best stories of the year. The CMA female vocalist of the year nominee made a huge comeback with the Hillary Scott co-write “A Little Bit Stronger” earlier in the year. The song launched her back to the top of the charts and put her on the track for a big comeback to the country music charts after staying out of the spotlight for a few years.

She’s back with her second single off of “Stronger,” and this one is just as good. “My Heart Can’t Tell You No” was released back in June to country radio, and debuted at number 54 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Charts. The second single off of her new studio album features alternate endings depending on where you were watching the music video – CMT, YouTube or downloaded from iTunes.

Did you know that Sara has also been hard at work with her own book series? She has two books she wrote about on a girl named Jade, from a small town who is getting ready to get married. We have your chance to win the second book in the series “Softly & Tenderly” autographed by Sara Evans herself! The contest is open immediately until Friday, November 4th at 2 pm EST. We will announce a winner later that night. The contest is open everywhere except where prohibited by law. The winner will be chosen randomly from correct entries received.

For your chance to win a copy of Sara Evans’ hardcover book “Softly & Tenderly” fill out the form below and tell us in the box who co-authored the series with Sara Evans. Good luck!

Sara Evans’ new single “My Heart Can’t Tell You No” might sound a little familiar. It’s a cover of a Rod Stewart hit of the same name, and she hopes it could be just as big. In fact, if she could have it her way, she’d turn it into a duet with the original singer.

Hear what Sara has to say about her single below, and let us know what you think of the second release from “Stronger.”
