Checotah native Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley co-hosted the CMA Awards for the fifth consecutive year Thursday night in Nashville, Tenn. Along with Underwood’s many wardrobe changes, their most memorable moments included their “Gangnam Style” dance sequence, Paisley’s guitar tribute to the late Andy Griffith and their scheme with Little Jimmy Dickens to boost ratings by getting the very pregnant Sugarland singer Jennifer Nettles to deliver her baby during the show.
