John Rich sang a song called "Shutting Detroit Down." About halfway through it, Plantboy said, "Is this a real song?"
All in all, it was a good time at the ACM's. There were actually some moments that were hard to mock:
It turns out that Taylor Swift can appear out of thin air (Plantboy: What DOES David Copperfield think he's doing?! He's just waving his arms around. And THAT is the worst hat ever.) The country wunderkind can also play the piano. I really like the song she did, but perhaps she needs to stop listening to Miley's advice about a little bit of head banging improving any number. Even a ballad.
They are also giving a humanitarian award annually now to honor a singer who has done a lot for charity. After all, charity work is all about getting recognized. The award went to LeAnn Rimes. The following photo makes it look like she was nominated in the most frontless dress category, but not so. Though I think several of the women missed the memo about the discontinuation of the category, because there were a couple of others who were missing the entire center piece from the middle of their tops. I'm just not sure I could ever really get into an event where bras are optional.
The upshot of this ridiculously lengthy (and ridiculous) post is that I could have watched all I cared to see in about 15 minutes. With the DVR, I could have also watched Discovery's three part documentary in about 2 1/2 hours, on any night of the week that I wanted to. That $15 a month investment is starting to look better all the time. With all the time I save I could, I don't know, watch more TV!
