My hillbilly bone is showing.

If there is one thing that blogging has made me love more is country music.
I always liked country music and I always appreciated it, but now I have come to really love it and listen to it a lot more than I used to. So, taking my love for country music and pairing that with my other passionate love for awards shows, then you can just see where this post is going. Yes, that's right: my thoughts on the ACM's.
Let's start with talking about the fashion for the night, shall we?
I am not claiming to be a fashion expert, and I frankly don't really care who wore what and all that jazz, I just state my opinions on what I thought looked good and what I liked. I will not be going all negative Nelly up in this post because if country music taught me anything, it's to be nice to people and love yourself - unless they break your heart, then you break out your gunpowder and lead.
 Let's take a look at what my favorite country gals were wearing!
Carrie Underwood is always flawless, period. I love the colors in her dress and the earrings she paired with it are perfect. Carrie can pretty much do anything with her hair and make it look amazing, but I am loving the pinned up back with little loose curls around her face. I just wish her bangs weren't so in her face. Just hairspray those puppies over and so we can see her eyes better.
My twinnie, Taylor Swift can do absolutely no wrong in my book. I love when she wears her bangs and her hair straight, which is something that I have been doing more lately ;) I also think that Taylor always looks very well put together. Her dress is beautiful, I love all the stones on the top, and I think her choice of small earrings is perfect. Her makeup is always on point and gorgeous. Jeepers, Taylor, stop making the rest of us look bad!
Moving on to the actual show.....

Can we just take a solid minute to appreciate the fact that these two adorable men were hosting the show all night long? I mean, I have loved Blake Shelton ever since I heard "Hillbilly Bone" and saw him on The Voice. Then this blogging community made me realize that Luke Bryan is one attractive individual aswell. After falling in love with both of this country boys, I was just in fangirling-swoony heaven all night long. Just look at how handsom they both are - even with Blake making this silly face.

My favorite performance of the night was obviously my homegirl Carrie with her song "Two Black Cadillacs". This song has been my jam for a while now and I just love the actual music video for it, so I was super excited to see her perform it and I wasn't surprised in the least bit when two cars drove out on stage from the wings. Love your effort and showmanship, Carrie! She also looked totally fabulicious again, I must say. Lovin' the dark lipstick, girl!

Among many other of my favorite performances was Blake Shelton, Taylor Swift & Tim McGraw, Miranda Lambert and The Band Perry.
Also, congratu-flipping-lations to Miranda Lambert who killed it and won three different awards! Especially song of the year which she won with her adorable hubby Blakey-pie.
How stinkin' cute are these two?!
Well, I am done being country for the day.
I am going to dust off my cowboy boots and go for a ride in my dad's pick-up truck.
