Some backstage clips and quips provided dramatic and humorous moments.
Wynonna made amends for a comment that she thought might have been misconstrued about Carrie Underwood. When asked what she thought about Carrie, Wynonna answered that she wasnÂt totally familiar with CarrieÂs music but thought that Carrie had the complete package for an entertainer. Wynonna then segued into a separate thought about the current state of country music, saying that it had become Âa little vanilla.Â Carrie was apparently waiting in the wings and heard WynonnaÂs comments, and perhaps thought that they were directed at her. Carrie appeared visibly upset as she talked with the press. To her credit, Wynonna returned to the press area and clarified her comments, with Carrie still in the room. ÂIÂm really concerned that that came out wrong and I did not mean that you were (vanilla), and my apologies if thatÂs what came out,Â Wynonna said.
Best quip of the nightÂÂKeith Urban. When asked what his next album might contain, Keith joked, ÂItÂs going to be a polka album. IÂm trying to stay ahead of the curve.Â
Hank Williams Jr. also revealed that his daughter Hilary, who was injured in a car accident on March 15 near Memphis along with HankÂs youngest daughter Holly, was close to death at one point. But after seven operations at a Memphis hospital, Hilary will be able to come back home in a couple of days.
