Now, you heard me talk about the outrageous number of performances on the ACMs this year. There was even a wedding on the stage as the lucky couple was serenaded by Martina McBride and Pat Monohan of Train. Well, I have the list of my top 3 favorites, with an honorable mention. It’s amazing to watch these artists do what they do best. Especially LIVE! No lipsync, no piped in, just all out. It gives me goose bumps.
Honorable Mention – Rascal Flatts with special guest Steve Martin. It’s amazing to see the transformation from a comedian I grew up watching on Saturday Night Live and movies like Planes, Trains, and Automobiles, to being an amazing Blue Grass performer with a band! The Steep Canyon Rangers is a real band! They’re even on tour and will be hitting Duluth in August at the Bayfront Blues Fest. Steve can play. Wow.
#3 – Miranda Lambert – Over You – Absolutely beautiful.
#2 – Toby Keith – Red Solo Cup – Toby doing it the best way he knows how. With all the party people at the back of the theater. Too funny! And yes, there is something in that Red Solo Cup of his.
#1 – Carrie Underwood – Good Girl – Wow, can this girl sing. The power behind her voice is just awesome! Enjoy!
