Young Talent and Legends Honored at the CMT Awards

The 2007 CMT Awards are country music's version of the MTV Video Music Awards: The winners are chosen by fans, and the ceremony is more about the spectacle than the actual winners. At last night's awards ceremony, hosted by Jeff Foxworthy and held in Nashville, Carrie Underwood beat out the Dixie Chicks to win Video of the Year, and the "American Idol" winner also took home the award for Best Female Video. I was probably most excited to see legendary singer and songwriter Kris Kristofferson on stage to accept the Johnny Cash Visionary Award.

The show also included performances from big Nashville names — including Hank Williams Jr. and Martina McBride — as well as one very non-Nashville name: Bon Jovi. The band was there to show off its new single, "(You Want To) Make a Memory," from the upcoming album the band recorded in Nashville. To see the full list of winners,

  • Video of the Year: "Before He Cheats," Carrie Underwood
  • Male Video: "You Save Me," Kenny Chesney
  • Female Video: "Before He Cheats," Carrie Underwood
  • Duo Video: "Want To," Sugarland
  • Group Video: "What Hurts the Most," Rascal Flatts
  • Breakthrough Video: "Tim McGraw," Taylor Swift
  • Wide Open Country Video: "Love You," Jack Ingram
  • Video Director: Roman White, "Before He Cheats" (Carrie Underwood)
  • Johnny Cash Visionary Award: Kris Kristofferson

I love Carrie Underwood! But she's a little too skinny now. Maybe.

I'm out of the loop, too, but I do love Kris as much now as ever.

I'm so out of the loop on this stuff... I haven't heard a single one of those songs. I do love Kris Kristofferson, though.
