Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood, hosts of the Country Music Association Awards, flouted the whims of CMA producers with a political opening song poking fun at President Donald Trump.
After Underwood informed Paisley that CMA guidelines said the show would be a “politics free zone,” Paisley joked that he wouldn’t be able to perform such parody songs as ““She Wrote a Memoir, Hillary’s Back,” “Hold Me Closer Bernie Sanders,” or “Stand By Your Manafort.”
But then, Paisley said screw it, and launched into a rendition of Underwood’s 2005 hit “Before He Cheats,” but with a few alterations to fit the song to the current president.
