Tag Archives: Country Music’s Biggest Night

As a little girl growing up in small town Gillette, Wyoming I always dreamed about the glamour of red carpet events and award shows – so much so that there are multiple pieces of footage of me as a small child pretending to interview stars with my first question always being, “Who are you wearing?”

I talked a little bit yesterday about my involvement with the CMA Awards on ABC yesterday, but I want to talk about it a little bit more today. My official title is Fashion and Beauty Correspondent, so I thought it would be perfect to share a little bit of the fashion I’m wearing while pre taping segments for the CMA Awards.

Another list of my favorite songs of the moment is here! This month’s list is a little longer than usual, but I just kept finding great stuff including tons of throwbacks ranging from James Taylor to U2 to Tears For Fears. Hope this little playlist starts your Monday on a great note!

I’m starting my day early downtown pre taping packages for the CMA Awards this Wednesday – don’t miss Country Music’s Biggest Night on ABC and abc.com. I’ll be co-hosting with my girls Kelly Sutton and Alex Wehrley along with Kellie Pickler and Natalie Stovall. CMA week is one of my favorites of the year!  I might have to create a special CMA Awards playlist later this week.

Here’s a fun little promo video we shot on Monday – FYI I didn’t know I was going to be on camera or I would have had a way cuter hair style, better makeup, etc. – but none of that could diffuse my love for DG!

I could not be happier to be working with the CMA for Country Music’s Biggest Night! I can’t wait to hear what you all think of the show! (We are going to be broadcasting live for 7 hours, so turn on your tv and fire up that laptop or ipad starting at 4 for a second screen experience!)
