Miranda Lambert Goes Platinum

The 48th annual CMA Awards are in the books. And it was surely a fun night for everyone.

Miranda Lambert & Meghan Trainor kicked off the evening singing Trainor’s hit single “All About that Bass” with a little country kick.

Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley had great chemistry together as the hosts of the show. The two were funny and  personable.

Underwood told Paisley the gender of her baby, to which Paisley said, “I know something you don’t know, so suck it TMZ.”

The pair sang a spoof on Dolly Parton’s “Jolene” titled “Quarantine,” to make light of the Ebola epidemic.

Paisley let it slip that Underwood is indeed having a baby boy, and he was very excited about it.

Steven Tyler presented the first award of the night, “Single of the Year.” The winner: Miranda Lambert’s hit single “Automatic.”
