    Keith and Eric did a bang up job opening the show. However, Keith and Nicole are a pair, and when one is w/o the other on the red carpet he/she looks lost.

    You know, I thought Keith looked so forlorn sitting there in the audience without Nicole. Bless his sweet heart.

    Keith and Eric absolutely killed it. As many times as I’ve seen Keith in concert or on tv his guitar solo in between Allegiance to The Hag and Raise ‘Em Up gave me chills. You could hear all his influences in that solo from country to rock to pop. There was that use of sound in a wide open space near the end that reminded me of The Edge. I don’t know if that came from playing in such a large venue or just the way his heart was feeling at the time but it was awesome. The Don Williams tee was classic Keith. Eric was giving it his all as usual. Nice to see him loosen up a little at an awards show and sing along to other artists. I just think he’s fantastic even if he’s misunderstood by a lot of people.
    Other than their performance the only other highlight for me was Dierks. Whoever decided to pair Christina with Rascal Flatts should be fired lol She strangled that song.
    It’s always better to see Nicole at Keith’s events and vice versa. Wouldn’t it be great if they could always be there for everything the other one does. In that respect they are just like any other family. Life gets in the way for all of us.
