Kanye West is a huge star amongst country singers…when it comes to being the butt of jokes.
“Mamas don’t let your babies grow up to be Kanye,” they sang. “Let them pick guitars and drive them old trucks, ’cause cowboys have manners, they don’t interrupt.”
Later on in the show, as Paisley began to talk about his video “Welcome To The Future,” and thank the production team, 88-year-old country legend Little Jimmy Dickens walked out onstage and grabbed the mic.
“Excuse me! Excuse me sir … I’ll let you finish later,” Dickens said, “Now Brad Paisley, I know you had a nice video and all that, but Taylor Swift made the best video of all time!”
The final jab came when Swift got up to receive her award for Best Female Vocalist.
“I want to thank every single person in this room tonight for not running up on this stage during this speech,” she said. “Thank you.” —Linda Hobbs
