I think it's an art form being able to look happy while losing an award at a televised show. Kacey Musgraves, unfortunately, hasn't quite mastered that look yet.
At last night's CMA Awards, Miranda Lambert won the Female Vocalist category, a category that Kacey Musgraves was also nominated for. The picture above was the look she had while Miranda was giving her acceptance speech. The disappointment is definitely palpable. The video is at end of this post in case you want to see the face in action.
Don't worry Kacey, I'm pretty sure this won't be your last chance to win (or lose) an award at one of these shows.
The rest of the winners for the evening are listed below. The most exciting moment, though, had to be when George Strait won Entertainer of the Year. I think a lot of people feel it was an honorary award more than anything since Strait is on the last tour of his career (probably), but I don't think many people have any hard feelings about that.
And for the record, all the guys who lost to King George have definitely mastered the art of looking happy for the winner. Kacey should watch and learn.
