Saturday Night Serenade–Ladies’ Night

If you missed the Academy of Country Music Awards show this past week like I did, you missed some amazing performances. Thank goodness for Hulu, which has the show in its entirety. It’s just waiting for you to stream.

You don’t even have to be a country music fan to appreciate the talent assembled at this gathering. The show was hosted by country music legends Dolly Parton, Reba McIntire, and future legend Carrie Underwood. Performances included some inspired pairings like Pink with Chris Stapleton, Garth Brooks with Blake Shelton, and Kacey Musgraves with Willie Nelson singing Rainbow Connection. Don’t even get me started with Ms. Reba bringing down the house with Fancy.

But to me, the most showstopping moment of the night was the opener, a medley of classic songs, many of which were performed by the legendary ladies who made them famous. The extended production number ends with all the ladies joining together to perform Martina McBride’s Independence Day, a rousing anthem of female empowerment and a lethal warning to those who would raise their hands against their partners.

I hope you enjoy this as much as I did. Stay warm this cold November weekend. Be sure to hug those you love.

Happy Saturday night!
