The ACMs hit television last night – the culmination of a bunch of country artists taking over Las Vegas for a week. I gotta say, I love country artists. Of all genres of music, these guys are the real deal. What you see is what you get. No freaky meat dresses, no over-the-top make up or hair dos, no “f” bombs during their acceptance speeches. Even without all the drama, it makes for good entertainment. Take note Pop music.
One of my favorite moments was when Brad Paisley jammed with The Zac Brown Band to “Whiskey Gone.” Not only did he show off his amazing guitar skills, he OWNED that Zac beanie! And of course, the camo shirt. I often forget what a talented guitarist he is so to see him really burn it up was awesome.
On a side note, I couldn’t help but notice that Zac Brown has the BEST teeth in country music. They’re like a freshly painted, bright white picket fence behind some serious shrubbery. Which led me to realize Zac Brown’s band has the most facial hair per capita than any other band in country music. Muttonchops ROCK.
Thanks for keeping it real, country music. Y’all did your genre proud!
