2012 CMAs + Random

Happy Friday, y'all!

Last night was the 46th annual Country Music Awards!
I was born and raised in Texas. Y'all, I love country music!

One of my favorite things about awards shows is seeing what everyone is wearing.
I'm no fashion expert by any means. But I know pretty dresses when I see them.

Here are my favorites from last night:

Taylor Swift
This dress is one of my favorites. So classy.

Jana Kramer
I've been a big fan of her since One Tree Hill. She's gorgeous and I'm really loving her music!

One of country's finest. IMO, blue is a great color for her!

Lauren Alaina
I loved her on American Idol and I think she looks great!

Ok.. Now let's talk Carrie.
Not gonna lie... One thing I looked forward to the most was seeing Carrie Underwood's 23746 wardrobe changes. Girlfriend did not disappoint.

Her red carpet dress was my favorite. 

Love them all.

Some highlights from the show...

The Eli Young Band was nominated for Song of the Year and Vocal Group of the Year. Now that may not mean much to you, but I've been an EYB fan since they were performing in small town bars. I'm so happy for they're success!

Miranda Lambert won Female Vocalist of the Year and her handsome hubby, Blake Shelton walked away with Male Vocalist of the Year AND Entertainer of the Year. It's been a great year for Blake and Miranda!

But the highlight of the show, was the Willie Nelson tribute by Lady Antebellum, Blake Shelton, Keith Urban, Faith Hill and Tim McGraw. I love me some Willie Nelson and consider myself pretty lucky to have seen Willie Nelson live {from the front row}!

In other news, I'm headed to Houston for the weekend to help host a bridal shower for 
my best friend. I'm so excited!

Also, my Aggies have a BIG game tomorrow. They're playing Mississippi State tomorrow morning in Starkville. It should be a great game, but of course, I hope A&M beats the HELL outta MSU! {Sorry, Callie!} :)

Have a good weekend!

I think last night may have been my fav awards show to date. Seriously, I can't even handle Blake and Miranda's preciousness.. They just make me so happy!! And Willie... my main man Willie. So glad that I can also say I have seen him live. That's a day I'll never forget!

I LOVE me some Willie too! I wish he was on the stage last night for a little longer but i saw him a few months ago this year in concert.
Miranda made me cry when they won for the best song.
Have a great weekend

Love the part about Eli Young Band because I feel the same way! They used to play in Stillwater all of the time.. they even did a free concert on the lawn during Homecoming my sophomore year! I have always loved them and so glad they are having such great success :) Have a great weekend girl!
