CMA Awards 2011 – Country Music Awards Winners List

The Country Music Awards aired on ABC Wednesday, hosted by returning duo Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley.

In addition to a little play time with Faith Hill and Tim McGraw dolls, Carrie and Brad poked fun at the Hank Williams Jr foot-in-mouth-debacle, with Hank joining in on the fun, before turning their playful teasing to Kim Kardashian and her “forever” marriage.

I must say, Carrie and Brad are quite cute together; it’s clear they have a real friendly connection and honest chemistry.
