If I Were A Boy

If I Were A Boy, Miranda Lambert turned 27 on Wednesday and celebrated in a memorable way, with female vocalist and album of the year at the 44th Annual Country Music Association Awards.

But the Texas fighter was not the only big winner at the ceremony, as pop-friendly trio Lady Antebellum was named vocal group of the year and single of the year won by the inevitable success “Need You Now.”

For the first time in his career, Brad Paisley won the title of artist of the year, a well-deserved and long overdue honor to a man adored by fans and industry. But despite his emotional speech, the tearful acceptance, gain Paisley is likely to be overlooked in favor of a night full of surprises.

As, first, why was not there more attention to Taylor Swift? Lambert entered the night with a record nine nominations, the most by a female country artist. But unlike the 20-year-old Swift, who reported first week sales of over 1 million of his new album, “Speak now,” Lambert has long been the most beloved of a popular criticism, after having scored his first chart-topper this year only “House built by me” (which also won song and music video of the year). His success on Wednesday night may have been a boost of credibility to Nashville, that Swift had showered before all the awards under the sun, although his voice sometimes unstable in vivo.

For its part, Swift used his performance slot to establish himself as a bit more of an adult, singing

The elegant ballad “Back in December” just a piano, backed by a subtle string section. A bold move, no doubt, but that she might regret, because it sounded humble and discreet, without confidence in them which usually displays.
Kid Rock, too, began his song “Born Free” on the piano, but soon took center stage with a magnificent fringed jacket we’re pretty sure smelled of stale beer and weed. A part-time rocker Bob Seger style, “Born Free” is also the title track to the new Kid Rock album, which goes on sale next week. Not only is it likely to become another smash hometown of Detroit, who is also the first record and probably last to present Martina McBride and rapper TI in the same track. The fact that Kid Rock is now a country music staple awards show, Nashville evidence is beginning to loosen up a bit.

Someone should tell that to Kenny Chesney. Known for his boundless energy, larger than life concert, Chesney police usually out in the award program and leave with a sad ballad. Wednesday night, elected its recent success, “The Boys in autumn”, a nostalgic – and still kind of sad – ballad about high school football.

Fortunately, Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles brought levity to the proceedings by dressing in drag singing dancer and his band of eccentric hit “Stuck like Glue” with a smile a mile wide. With his gentle acoustic guitars and a little reggae fun in the middle, which actually sounds more like a song by Jack Johnson, the surfer-turned-singer who makes a big deal in the circuit of jam band? For the fourth consecutive year, Sugarland took home the Vocal Duo of the Year Award.

Reba McEntire, which was loud and annoying last month at the Target Center, who scored again for your sober cover of Beyonce “If I Were a Boy”, which sounds like another blow to the veteran singer. Pal Reba Kelly Clarkson – who looked fantastic, by the way – joined Jason Aldean rowdy Georgia of “Do You Want to Stay”, a good power, the old ballad of her newly released album, “My Kinda Party.”

A live performance by actress Gwyneth Paltrow polarization reports, there were some Nashville types of stomach, but elegant ceremony producers capitalized on the curiosity factor, the allocation of dates in near the end of the procedure. Paltrow, who plays a singer and songwriter in the upcoming movie “strong country,” seemed a little nervous, but became adequate performance, backed by Vince Gill. (It obviously has some training of her husband, Chris Martin of Coldplay.)

Organized by the third year running by the dynamic duo of “American Idol” Carrie Underwood and Paisley, CMA central point were the actions, rather than long speeches. With a mere dozen awards given to artists, the ceremony all things country, a genre that has become increasingly diverse in recent years. During its opening fun, Underwood and Paisley mocked worldwide Brett Favre Tim McGraw Lady Gaga, working on some semi-hard gags along the way Tiger Woods.

In recent years, the CMA has shown highly polished, commercially driven taste in presenting the award for best new artist of the year to honor the real superstars, including Lady Antebellum, Swift and Underwood. This year, however, may have played a bit too strong, in honor of Zac Brown Band with that title about two years after the group scored its first No. 1 country hits six radio.

In the end, Lambert should see a sales coup ordered by the night, as her boyfriend, Blake Shelton, whose unexpected male vocalist of the year she felt like a further validation for the last queen of the country.
