The CMT Awards Take "One-Hit Wonder" Jokes To An Uncomfortable New Level

Idolator: All About The Music, USA - Apr 15, 2008

Last night's CMT Music Awards�the country-music television network's version of its sister network MTV's Video Music Awards�veered into "a little more than slightly excruciating" territory when co-host Miley Cyrus tripped her way through a Taylor Swift intro in which she talked about texting the glittery-guitar-hoisting country protege incessantly, an endless setup to what would be one of many "ha ha, Dad, I'm paying your bills!" zingers that the Hannah Montana star sent in the direction of her father/svengali, "Achy Breaky Heart" singer Billy Ray Cyrus. (Yes, he performed the line dance that sent him and his mullet to stardom back in 1992, the same year his cash cow was sired.) The opening skit, in which Trace Adkins and his really greasy mop tried currying favor with everyone from Donald Trump to the three remaining Presidential candidates in order to get passes to the show, also mined that route; its final punchline was that Billy Ray was making extra scratch by scalping tickets, which were of course hot properties because of his daughter's presence. That girl is going to be so messed up in three years. Full list of winners�which includes three awards for Kellie Pickler, two for Taylor Swift, and one for that super-creepy video where Jon Bon Jovi and Leann Rimes make out�after the jump.

_ Video of the year: Taylor Swift, "Our Song."
_ Male video: Trace Adkins, "I Got My Game On."
_ Female video: Taylor Swift, "Our Song."
_ Group video: Rascal Flatts, "Take Me There."
_ Duo video: Sugarland, "Stay."
_ Breakthrough video: Kellie Pickler, "I Wonder."
_ Collaborative video: Bon Jovi featuring LeAnn Rimes, "Till We Ain't Strangers Anymore."
_ Performance of the year: Kellie Pickler, "I Wonder" from 41st Annual CMA Awards.
_ Supporting character of the year: Rodney Carrington from Trace Adkins' "I Got My Game On."
_ Wide open country video: Alison Krauss and Robert Plant, "Gone, Gone, Gone (Done Moved On)."
_ Tearjerker video: Kellie Pickler, "I Wonder."
_ Comedy video: Brad Paisley, "Online."
_ Video director: Michael Salomon for Toby Keith's "High Maintenance Woman" and Trace Adkins' "I Got My Game On."
