The Golden Globes, the Oscars, and the Grammy Awards have enjoyed putting politics at the center of their shows. As for the Academy of Country Music Award show, they have decided to take a different route.
Historically, the ACM Awards show does not dabble around with politics, they stick to what the show is supposed to be about: performances and awards. I don't know about you, but I think that's what fans are wanting.
Reba McEntire hosted the ACM Awards last Sunday, which is her 16th year, and she has something to say about politics at an award show.
“This year the idea is to have fun. There’s a lot of political things you can address, stuff going on in the world. That’s not our theme; our theme is to have fun, not to be mean, not to be catty, just to have a great night of entertainment, great music, seeing everybody and introducing new music,” Reba told "Us Weekly."
Thankfully, Reba is not like other award show hosts. She kept it classy, just like herself.
"I echo Dolly [Parton]'s sentiments when she said, 'If you want to be in show business, keep your damn mouth shut'" Reba told the "Rolling Stones."
With the highly-anticipated performances from Alan Jackson, Carrie Underwood, Toby Keith, Miranda Lambert, and Kelly Clarkson, the fans were not disappointed, especially when we weren't bogged down with politics.
“It’s going to be a fun night," Reba said. "I want it to be positive and uplifting and so does everybody at the ACM. They first came to me and said, ‘Our theme this year is fun. Let’s go have fun.’ I said, ‘Absolutely, I’m for it.’”
