Dear country music hater, I’m sorry to tell you that you are, most likely, already a country music fan. Do you think Dolly Parton is a legendary woman of glamour? Has listening to Lana Del Rey led you down a rabbit hole of Patsy Cline and Wanda Jackson covers? Did you think Tim McGraw was insanely funny when he hosted SNL in 2008? Do you like Kacey Musgraves’ outfits? Did you rock out to Carrie Underwood’s Cowboy Casanova in 2009? Are you still bopping to TikTok classic and country music Billboard chart-topper, Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road”? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you are further proof that 2019 was the year of the Yeehaw agenda.
This means, you have to watch tonight’s Country Music Awards, hosted by featuring performances by Lady Antebellum and Halsey, Kacey Musgraves and Willie Nelson, Reba McEntire, Blake Shelton, Carrie Underwood, and Keith Urban. Keep an eye out for Reese Witherspoon and Bachelorette Hannah Brown, just some of the night's many celebrity presenters. The only question left to ask is: Will Charli XCX make a special appearance in this stunning sparkly pink outfit?
