The 2012 CMA Awards night kicked off by a performance of Jason Aldean, who sang his single “The Only Way I Know” and dedicated it to New York and New Jersey, which were most affected by Hurricane Sandy. He was joined onstage by present heartthrobs Luke Bryan and Eric Church, who had five nominations.
Event hosts Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley sang a parody song of “Moves Like Jagger” with “Moves Like Haggard.” Carrie later made fun of Taylor Swift‘s rumored romance with Conor Kennedy, as Taylor‘s “We Are Never, Ever Getting Back Together” was played, but the camera was not focused on the singer.
