Hours after the 2018 CMA Awards on Wednesday night (November 14), several country titans like Rascal Flatts, Kacey Musgraves and other chart-toppers appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live's "Mean Tweets" segment and the beloved staple was full of laughs.
"People who say Nickelback is the worst band obviously haven't heard Rascal Flatts," the band read to a roar of chuckles from the audience. Meanwhile, Musgraves was criticized for her outfit, but the remark didn't phase her much. "Put some freaking clothes on Kasey Musgraves, that outfit is not country," a fan tweeted, misspelling her first name. "Yeah, it's kinda not," she said with a smirk while wearing a black fishnet top.
Among the other acts who took part in the almost-three minute segment included Jake Owen, Thomas Rhett, Midland, Dierks Bentley, Lauren Alaina, Brothers Osborne, Jon Pardi, Cole Swindell, Michael Ray, Scotty McCreery, Ashley McBryde, Old Dominion, Dan + Shay and Luke Combs.
Regardless of the murmurs on Twitter, the best of the evening still went home with some major honors. While Chris Stapleton won Single of the Year, Song of the Year and Male Vocalist of the Year and Keith Urban won Entertainer of the Year, Musgraves repped for the females and took home the Album of the Year trophy at the ceremony.
