Justin Moore attended last night's CMA Awards (nice photo here), but it seems that he may be a little bit sad about how it and other award shows in the past have went down. 

After the show, Justin took to Twitter to answer some fan questions. One of the questions asked was why we don't ever see him on the award show stage. Justin answered quite honestly.

Chart Roundup – Week of November 16th, 2013


WARNING: Don’t take this week seriously, I’m delirious and
think I’m funny.

So, you may have noticed I didn’t do a chart roundup last
week. No special reason; I was just sleeping instead. I miss sleep.

So Luke Bryan’s hogging #1 across Hot Country Songs and
Country Digital Songs still with ‘That’s My Kind of Night’, which I think is
mighty selfish of him. It’s dropped down to #6 on Country Airplay though, and he’s
down to #4 on Top Country Albums with ‘Crash My Party’, so at least he’s
sharing a little. Florida Georgia Line are missing their chart glory so ‘Stay’
is biting at Luke’s heels at #2 on Country Digital Songs and #8 on Hot Country
Songs, but country radio clearly doesn’t care seeing as it’s still at #19.
Thomas Rhett’s R&B hit ‘It Goes Like This’ is clearly fooling a lot of
people and is still at #2 on Hot Country Songs and #3 on Country Digital Songs/Country
Airplay, while his debut album has managed to come in above sell-out Toby Keith
by placing at #2. An album track called ‘Get Me Some of That’ is at #6 on
Country Digital Songs. Speaking of Toby, ‘Drinks After Work’ is at #3, in case
you cared.

So let’s talk about some of the other faces at the CMA Awards

Kacey Musgraves' disappointed face at last night's CMA Awards has been the talk of the morning, but there were other faces that deserve a second look too.

First, there was George Strait who looked like he wanted to be anywhere but on the stage last night during Taylor Swift's Pinnacle Award acceptance (video).


Then there were the faces during Brad and Carrie's Obamacare joke

Kacey Musgraves hasn’t learned the fine art of losing yet

Kacey Musgraves sad

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.
