Pink performed “Barbies” at the 2017 CMA Awards on Wednesday. Watch the video below!
Pink was invited to the CMA Awards as a nominee for Musical Event of the Year for “Setting The World On Fire” with Kenny Chesney. The song was released in 2016 as the second single from Chesney’s album, Cosmic Hallelujah. The duet hit number one on both the Country Airplay chart and the Hot Country Songs list. A commercial success, the track has reached platinum status, as certified by the RIAA. It was also a critical success as well, garnering a Grammy nomination for Best Country Duo/Group Performance earlier this year. Pentatonix and Dolly Parton ended up taking home the award for a new version of “Jolene.”
And on Wednesday morning, hours before the CMAs ceremony, it was announced Glenn Campbell posthumously won Musical Event award for “Funny How Time Slips Away” with Willie Nelson. Of course, Chesney has taken home plenty of trophies from the Country Music Association in the past. In fact, he won the top prize, Entertainer of the Year, in 2004, 2006, 2007 and 2008. His most recent recognition came just last year, when Chesney was bestowed the Pinnacle Award, becoming only the third person to ever receive the honor, following Garth Brooks and Taylor Swift.
Pink has done quite well in her own right. As Gossip Cop reported, in August she received the Video Vanguard Award at the MTV Music Video Awards. She also has three Grammy awards to her name, in addition to six wins at the Billboard Music Awards over the course of her career. She even scored an ACM nomination earlier this year, thanks to the collaboration with Chesney. And her participation in this year’s CMA Awards is evidence of her crossover appeal.
The performance comes just less than a month after Pink released Beautiful Trauma, her seventh studio album, which features “Barbies.” The record is likely to have her back at the Grammys next year, although nominations won’t be revealed for another two weeks.
