Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley hosted the 2017 Country Music Awards. 

Underwood and Paisley also paid tribute to the victims of mass shootings, including last month's massacre at the Route 91 Harvest music festival in Las Vegas, and those affected by recent hurricanes in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico.

They opened the show with a roast of Donald Trump.

“Now Brad, I don’t know if you heard about this, but the CMA has given us some ‘guidelines’ with specific topics to avoid,” Underwood told her cohost. The pair, who are celebrating their 10th year hosting the award ceremony, are known for addressing current events in their opening monologues.

Paisley asked Underwood if that meant he couldn’t perform his new songs, She Wrote a Memoir, Hillary’s BackHold Me Closer Bernie Sanders, or Stand By Your Manafort.

But when Paisley launched into a slightly tweaked version of Underwood’s hit song Before He Cheats, the crowd went wild.

“In the middle of the night, from the privacy of a gold-plated White House toilet seat, he writes little Bob Corker, NFL and covfefe,” Paisley sang. The duo stopped the song to joke about the pronunciation and meaning of Trump’s infamous “covfefe” tweet.

“And it’s fun to watch until little rocket man starts a nuclear war. Maybe next time he’ll think before he tweets.”
