Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley mock Miley, Obamacare, feuding stars in CMA opening

Listen to CMA Radio on iHeartRadio

Six-time CMA Hosts Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley pulled no punches during their opening monologue at Wednesday night's 47th Annual CMA Awards, poking fun at everyone from Miley Cyrus to Blake Shelton to Obamacare.

The duo opened the show with a spoof on War's "Why Can't We Be Friends," making musical mockery of ongoing feuds in the country music community including the feud between Luke Bryan and Zac Brown. The parody prompted Luke Bryan to get up out of his seat to give Zac Brown a hug, sending the arena into an uproar of applause and laughter, and that was just the beginning.

Carrie and Brad decided to create some new feuds, handing out feud cards to let the starts know who they should feud with. Kelly Clarkson was paired up with her new step mother-in-law, country great Reba McEntire; Kenny Rogers was paired with Paisley; and Darius Rucker was assigned to feud with Julianne Hough, who recently made headlines for her controversial blackface Halloween costume.  Underwood and Paisley also worked in a few digs about Miley Cyrus, thanking country-pop darling Taylor Swift for not being Miley-like with her stage presence.

 

The duo also took shots at Obamacare computer glitches during the show's opening and brought out members of A&E's hit series "Duck Dynasty" with a twerk-filled take on Robin Thicke's hit song "Blurred Lines" - only their version was aptly called "Duck Blinds."
