Hit single ‘All about that bass’ gets a country twist?

At the 48th annual Country Music Awards

Hit single ‘All about that bass’ gets a country twist?

We had mixed feeling about Meghan Trainor and Miranda Lambert teaming up at this years 2014 Country Music Awards but it turned out to be genre perfection.

The blonde beauties, both in flirty little dresses nailed the hit single that opened this years 48th annual Country Music Awards ceremony.

The performance preceded Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley’s opening monologue who famously have hosted the awards for the seventh year straight.

Big winners on the night included Miranda Lambert who fought off stiff competition to win four different categories at the awards - which were held at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena in Tennessee

As well as rocking the opening, the singer took home the Female Vocalist of the Year award for the fifth time, Album of the Year for 'Platinum', Single of the Year for her single 'Automatic' and she also shared the Musical Event of the Year gong with Australian singer Keith Urban for their collaboration 'We Were Us'.

Speaking as she collected her Female Vocalist prize, she said: "I don't know what to say. I can't believe I'm standing here. I can't believe this is my life ... Damn it! I cry every time."

Meanwhile, Miranda's husband Blake Shelton, 38 - whom she went up against in the Entertainer of the Year and Single of the Year categories - took home his fifth consecutive Male Vocalist of the Year award.

Other winners included 38-year-old Luke Bryan who took home his first ever CMA on the back of five hits from his 2013 album 'Crash My Party'.

Taking to the stage to collect the award for Entertainer of the Year, he said: "I have long sought to have one of these in my hands."

Kacey Musgraves, Little Big Town, Florida George Line, Mac McAnally, Dierks Bentley and Brett Eldredge were also recognised by the CMA's 6,000 members.
