This years award hosted by Erin Andrews and JJ Watt. The opening comedy bit had several country stars and past hosts of the show, with the hosts and was really comical, loved it. Like years past they mixed pop music stars with country stars and an outdoor stage. They also had the new artists on a separate stage , JJ had some pretty good jokes. Overall it was a bit of a letdown when compared with the other country music award shows.
