Brad Paisley, Carrie Underwood Hang Clothes at the Hall of Fame
The clothes the duo wore when they hosted the 44th Annual CMA Awards -- the third year they hosted the annual event -- will be on display from January 18 until June 30, 2011. That will give fans a chance to get up close and personal with the Georges Chakra-designed outfit -- a pleated tulle ballerina dress embellished with 15,000 rhinestones -- that Carrie wore. The John Richmond jacket with gold-beaded lapels that Brad wore when he received the CMA's Entertainer of the Year award will also be on display.
"When the flood happened just about everything we tour with was ruined," Brad said in explanation on why he was sharing the award with his band and crew. "The day before the flood hit we were ready for our tour that was scheduled to start in less than three weeks; two days later we had almost nothing. The set had to be rebuilt, I had to find new guitars, but my crew pulled it together and we played our first show in Virginia Beach right on schedule and it went off without a hitch. The rest of the tour was the same; nothing went wrong. I owe this award to my crew, who take as much pride in our concerts as I do. If ever there was a year I wanted to win this award, this was it."
