The 49th Annual CMA Awards took place in Nashville, TN this past Wednesday and the night belonged to two men.

First, the amazing Chris Stapleton finally got the national respect and acknowledgment he deserves by winning 3 CMA Awards for Best New Artist, Best Male Vocalist and Album Of The Year for his breakthrough hit album, Traveller.

Stapleton not only owned the night by winning three of the biggest awards, but he also completely stole the show with his good buddy megastar Justin Timberlake who he performed two duets with.

Using parts of both of their bands which made for a great medley, the two stars first performed Stapleton’s smash hit “Tennessee Whiskey” which was a great performance in it’s own right. But it was the pair’s second duet of Timberlake’s “Drink You Away” from his album The 20/20 Experience – 2 Of 2 that absolutely brought the house down!!!

Justin’s charisma oozed all over the stage and everyone in attendance was loving every second of it, with the likes of Keith Urban, Jake Owen, and Little Big Town among others all jamming out to the performances and Chris was right there with him rockin’ out. It was without a doubt the best moment of the night.

They were great together and it was a big and amazing moment for country music. You can see both performances below.

Did Carmelo Secretly Tell Bulls Fans He’s Coming To Chicago???!!!

 

Did Carmelo Secretly Tell Bulls Fans He’s Coming To Chicago???!!! Did New York Knicks Superstar Carmelo Anthony hint to Bulls fans that he just may be wearing their team’s uniform next season? Well, not directly, but Melo did have a very intriguing tweet recently that has some NBA fans thinking the 7 time All-Star has already made a decision about what team he’s going to play for when he hits free agency this upcoming summer. While promoting a pair of his Jordan Melo M10 shoes, Anthony said “Really into this colorway for the @Jumpman23 M10 #ThisisMelo #RiseToTheMoment.” Reading that, you’d say, oh that’s nothing. But the colorway is Red, White, and Black. Bulls Baby!!!! LOL. This led to a few responses to the tweet with some people feeling like Carmelo was basically saying he’s digging the Red, White and Black because he plans on wearing those colors next year as a member of the Chicago Bulls, some even threw out the Heat but I don’t think that’s happening. If Carmelo is wearing those colors on the basketball court next season it will indeed be as a Chicago Bull. A lot can happen between now and then and Melo has a potential $129 Miilion to gain by staying in New York. That’s a lot to walk away from for any person. I personally don’t see the Knicks being good in the next year or two though, maybe even longer if they can’t sign a major free agent in the summer of 2015. So if Carmelo truly wants to win maybe he would consider doing what LeBron, and Chris Bosh did a few years ago. Go to another franchise  that could provide an opportunity to win an NBA Championship immediately, have a player option put in the deal so you can opt early (most likely after 3 years) and get the big payday then. So, no one knows where Carmelo is going to end up after this or what else is going to happen this summer, but one thing is for sure… with an NBA Playoffs that should be very exciting and fresh with a lot of new faces and teams in the hunt, multiple major stars possibly being on the free agent market, and potentially one of the deepest NBA Drafts in the last decade, the summer of 2014 is going to be EXTREMELY interesting. Sidenote: I noticed The Chicago Bulls follow Carmelo ANthony on Twitter. I know they probably follow other players as well but it’s just something I noticed.
