It wouldn’t be a music awards show – even a country one – without giving a nod to the year’s biggest hit.
“Blurred Lines” got some love during Wednesday night’s CMA Awards in Nashville, Tenn., when hosts Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley kicked off the night with a parody of Robin Thicke’s party anthem. The new version “Duck Lines” was a nod to the cast of A&E’s Duck Dynasty.
The reality family joined the hosts on stage for the silly song, which replaced “I know you want it,” with “I know you hunt it,” and used “You’re a country girl,” instead of “You’re a good girl.” The words “Quack, quack, quack” replaced “Hey, hey, hey.”
The tune preceded the Robertson family presenting the single of the year award to Florida Georgia Line, who won for “Cruise.”
Miley Cyrus, who famously performed with Thicke during his presentation of the now classic song at the VMAs, was also mentioned (indirectly) during country’s biggest night. The hosts thanked Taylor Swift for not “gyrating” on bears. Swift then blew a kiss with a smile to the stage.
