ACM Awards 2013: Blake Shelton, Luke Bryan and everyone else celebrate the 'Boys 'Round Here'Add to Favorites | The 49th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards
The duo opened Sunday's (April 7) awards with a duet of Shelton's song "Boys 'Round Here," and the duet soon became a group effort. Miranda Lambert (Shelton's wife), Sheryl Crow and Brad Paisley, among others, all joined in on the ode to good ol' boys everywhere.
The good-time spirit continued as Shelton and Bryan traded insults in their opening banter about the relative tightness of their jeans (not great) and a joke about ABC's "Nashville" that suggested Shelton is the Rayna James of the duo and Bryan is the Juliette Barnes (much better).
It put the Las Vegas crowd in the right kind of celebratory mood, though, and that's what hosts are supposed to do.
