bauble barToday kicked off the first day of CMA Awards pre-taping. I am co-hosting the live red carpet show on abc.com again this year (Starts at 5 PM/C – I would love for you to tune in!) and Monday and Tuesday are full of taping segments, rehearsing, etc.

Interviewing country music newcomer and sweetheart Michael Ray. It's his first year at the CMA Awards, but he's already had a #1 hit "Kiss You In The Morning." His newest single "Real Men Love Jesus" is beauuuuuutiful.
