ACM Recap

ACM awards were last night and I was so happy with Miranda Lambert and Lady A's wins. Favorite performances of the night were Miranda, Jack Ingram and Dierks Bentley, Brad Paisley and Keith Urban. Least favorite performance of the night for me...Laura Bell Bundy...sorry I just don't get it. I would've rather seen somebody like Martina McBride, Craig Morgan, Josh Turner, or Chris Young perform one of their hit songs from this past year.

Best joke of the night...Brad Paisley asking Matthew Mcconaughey to borrow his shirt after jumping in the pool...since he never wears one. And saying that his wife thinks he's the better kisser.

Worst joke of the night...Reba making a fat joke at Kristie Alley's expense. I just thought it was mean and unnecessary. And Kristie was apparently watching and agreed. She tweeted "@reba wow...thought we girls would stick together....next time you need a fat joke about me, just ask...Mine are funny."

Lots of stars talking today about their reaction to the awards last night, including Charles Kelly of Lady A. He spoke to Country Weekly and said, "I told Miranda going in, I really genuinely want you to win this award because you deserve it. I’m buddies with Luke, I’m buddies with Miranda and I was genuinely rooting for these people and they won and then we won, too. It made for one of those nights where everything came together exactly like you could have wished for it to come together. It was great.“ Read more of the story, including how he ended up in the pool later on in the night here http://www.countryweekly.com/lady_antebellum/news/4672

Keith Urban put on a great performance but didn't walk away a winner...he sent a message to his fans about what he thought of not getting Entertainer of the Year http://www.keithurban.net/kutube.html%3Fma_id%3D0%26mc_id%3D785%26p%3D1

Twitter was active last night with all the stars tweets from antics leading up to the show, who they were sitting by and who they were routing for. Here are some of last night's Twitter highlights:
