These country music stars are just not wilin’ out like they used to. This year’s red carpet at the Country Music Association Awards was tamer ‘enna a mule caught a nibblin’ in the marijuana patch. In fact, the only person on the red carpet to go full Nudie was the yodeling Walmart kid, who I guess is country famous now. You know, I yodeled in a Walmart once and never got invited to the CMAs. Of course I was yodeling through there with a quickness and headed straight for the bathroom; road-trip coffee diarrhea is nothing to joke about. For the most part, the ladies kept it simple with selections from the Gunne Sax prom collection, and the gentleman chose one or two items from the Sheplers catalog and paired them with black jeans. Of course, there were a few stand-out looks.
At last night’s gathering, some friends and I sat around and watched some of the Coachella performances. What I took away from it was:
A) Oh god, I’m at the age where I don’t know anyone anymore and I used to be a music person.
B) You have to have some sort of wolf-related light-up facial gear or press play in just a bra and white denim shorts if you want to make it big out there in the desert. Oh, and…
Anyway, Twitter comedian Eric Turtle somehow got Walmart yodeling wunderkind Mason Ramsey on stage during a DJ named Waltham’s set. Or something, I don’t know. Young social media online celebrity culture can be confusing for us olds. The folks in the audience who were sober enough to still retain pop culture recall loved his lil’ yodeling self! So did least-talented toddler Justin Bieber. Mason proves that you don’t HAVE to sport just a bra to play a good set.
after the yodel kid followed me i dmed him to try and get him to come out as whethans guest at coachella. and it happened. ur welcome everyone. i love u mason and i love the internet pic.twitter.com/VSjLjS9mU4
