Move over Carrie Underwood, Thomas Rhett, Miranda Lambert and everybody else – Ellen DeGeneres is the new face of country music.
DeGeneres opens Wednesday’s “The Ellen Show” with her classic wit: “Tonight is the CMA Awards. Of course, CMA stands for “Cowboys Making Albums.”
Ahead of the historic 50th annual awards show Wednesday night – follow the live red carpet coverage right here on etcanada.com – the television personality presented her parody of the CMA preview video starring CMA hosts Brad Paisley and Underwood. In it, DeGeneres casually drops in on the video – dressed as a cowboy and singing “I Will Always Love You” with her trusty washboard.
