Monday's Mixtape: The ACM Awards.

Yesterday the great state of Texas hosted the American Country Music Awards, and today's mixtape will feature songs from the Album of the Year category - my favorite for each artist! Miranda Lambert beat the boys (and Little Big Town) to bring home the honor for her album Platinum. And after we'll talk a little fashion, like we always do. Enjoy!

1// Somethin' Bad by Miranda Lambert (ft Carrie Underwood)

I just really enjoy when these two women sing their "bad girl" songs. They're more fun to rock out to! Also, 10 points to both women for some really awesome hair (when it's blonde, I mean..not the weird wigs they are wearing..ha!)

2// Burnin' It Down by Jason Aldean

I'll be honest, this is the only song I've heard off of this album. I just haven't been a big Jason fan lately. And I'm starting to wonder if I ever really was..oh well.

3// Stay All Night by Little Big Town

I love the groove of this song, and I love their harmonies! Always on point.

4// Five by Dierks Bentley

Riser by Dierks Bentley

Dierks totally and completely hits it out of the park with this album - making it pretty hard to choose a favorite, so I'm going with two. And I'm pretty sure I could put the whole album on here, it's that good. I love "Five" because it tells a pretty little story of love lost, and then found again - and Riser is a great song because it reminds me of all the hard-working men in my life that I love so much!

5// Talladega by Eric Church

The Outsiders by Eric Church

Again, TOTALLY LOVE this album (I really wish Eric or Dierks would have won this category!), and picking is hard! I couldn't have picked more opposite songs though. Talladega just doesn't get old for me. It reminds me of good times that I've had, and good people that have been in my life. And I just like rocking to The Outsiders. I've always liked Eric's brand of rock/country.

And now, the fashion::

1// Miranda Lambert

The only thing I don't like about this whole thing is that string across her chest. It's like I almost want it to just cover her boobs or nah - don't put a weird string across them and call it good! The color is great on her, and her hair/makeup looks pretty. She's on a roll lately.

2// Eric and Jessie James Decker

It almost pains me to talk about Eric in a good way - he used to play for the Denver Broncos before he threw a hissy fit and left..for the Jets. Sorry bud, you sunk your own ship.

But in this case, he looks polished and dapper - and his wifey, Jessie, looks chic and put together. A++ for this fashionable couple!

3// Maddie and Tae

I'm pretty sure these girls used the same dress for their proms last weekend. 
Ugh. (and they're so cute! Such a bummer!)

4// Alan Jackson

How cute is Alan and his wife?! That color is perfect on her - I sort of hate her hemline, but I think it's an alright dress. And I just think Alan is adorable in his Stetson. The man will always be able to pull of a white cowboy hat!

5// Troy Aikman

Troy Aikman is a hunk. There I said it. He's gotten so handsome in his old age - and his wife is beautiful. I wish her dress was a different shade, but it fits well and she looks pretty.

6// Taylor Swift

I cried when I saw Taylor's sweet mama give her the Milestone Award - what a sweet moment! Her dress is..okay. I think I would have liked it better without the cut outs - or strapless. I can't decided. But I know I hate the shoes. Tay though, I heart her.

7// Sam Hunt

That's all. Bye.

  1. I completely agree that the bad girl country, especially when Miranda is involved is just so much fun! I always feel a little bad ass when I listen to those songs.

    1. YES - me too! I never really like Miranda's slow songs - I just want her to sing about kicking ass and taking names!
