From the Video: COUNTRY MUSIC AWARDS OPEN: BRAD PAISLEY AND CARRIE UNDERWOOD MOCK OBAMACARE —
Wednesday night’s CMA (Country Music Association) awards opened up with a bang, incorporating Kenny Rogers, the Robertson family from “Duck Dynasty,” and even a little Obamacare mockery. That’s right, hosts Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood had a special segment and even song mocking the failed health care rollout that featured the pair pretending to sign up for Obamacare and then crooning about the failure. It all started while the pair was singing a new version of “Why Can’t We Be Friends” that faked feuds between some of country music’s biggest stars (including Kenny Rogers) and Paisley stopping abruptly to complain about back pain. That’s when Underwood suggested trying to sign up for Obamacare.

Paisley’s song, “Welcome to the Future” about racial progress, was inspired by Obama’s election in 2008. And the first time he played it live was in front of the president at a Fourth of July celebration at the White House.
