It was a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment during the 2012 CMT Music Awards on Wednesday (June 6). Who was the Marine seated next to Kellie Pickler? He certainly isn’t her husband Kyle — did she bring someone back from her recent USO trip?
The 2012 CMT Music Awards began with a batch of country and pop collaborations before settling into a Nashville-based broadcast, featuring Music City’s best. Rascal Flatts closed the show with one of the all-time greatest mainstream rock bands however, inviting Journey on stage to sing ‘Don’t Stop Believin’.’
Right after performing ‘Good Girl,’ the gilded goddess Carrie Underwood returned to the stage to pick up her award for Video of the Year at the 2012 CMT Music Awards tonight (June 6). Country legend Alan Jackson, who revealed that he has made 54 music videos over the course of his career and pointed out the importance of the medium, presented Underwood with her buckle for the biggest award of the evening.
For the second time in less than a month, two rows of fans will go home from an award show picking confetti out of their hair and outfits following a Carrie Underwood performance. At the end of ‘Good Girl’ at the 2012 CMT Music Awards, it rained gold on unsuspecting fans below.
Luke Bryan nabbed the buckle for Male Video of the Year at the 2012 CMT Music Awards for his cinematic clip for ‘I Don’t Want This Night to End.’ The ever-excitable singer bounded up on the stage to accept his honor as though he just downed a case of Red Bull.
Before Eric Church took the stage to perform his No. 1 single ‘Drink in My Hand’ at the 2012 CMT Music Awards, Big Kenny and John Rich introduced the singer from the middle of a screaming crowd outside the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. The quirky duo joked that the entire performance line-up at the CMT Music Awards felt kind of like a drinking game. Still, they toasted red solo cups to Eric Church, and he busted out a crowd favorite song.
Lady Antebellum picked up the buckle for Group Video of the Year for ‘We Owned the Night’ at the 2012 CMT Music Awards. First, they open the show with a mashup and then they nab an award at the midpoint! It turned out to be a good night for Lady A.
The 2012 CMT Music Awards are a great place to debut new material — after all, there are thousands of country mega-fans in attendance, and thousands more sitting at home watching. That’s what Kenny Chesney must have been thinking when he played his debut live performance of ‘Come Over,’ the second single off of his upcoming album ‘Welcome to the Fishbowl.’
