A larger-than-life wedding and a whirlwind divorce: Kim Kardashian's divorce could pass for the plot of a country ballad.

And Wednesday night, it did just that.

As Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley took to the Bridgestone Arena stage for Nashville's biggest night at the Country Music Association Awards, the four-time hosts addressed Kardashian and Kris Humphries with a tongue-in-cheek tune.





Along with Emmy-winning Modern Family star Eric Stonestreet, the country crooners sang, "I'm gonna love you forever."

"Or 72 days," Stonestreet chimed in. "Amen."

Kardashian and Humphries weren't the only couple at the butt of the hosts' jokes. Faith Hill and Tim McGraw also took the stage – in doll form.

"Do you think these dolls are anatomically correct?" Paisley asked Underwood. "There's only one way to find out – give me Faith!"

But it wasn't just couples taking heat: Enter Hank Williams Jr., whose iconic football promo was pulled from ESPN last month after he compared President Obama to Adolf Hitler.

Williams joined Underwood and Paisley on stage after the hosts poked fun at him with the lyrics: "Why the heck do you drink before an interview? Why do you smoke before an interview?"

Miss Piggy Goes Country


Alongside country's biggest names was a superstar in her own right: Miss Piggy.

The Muppet megastar stole a little of Underwood's thunder – and locked the country singer in her dressing room, she joked – to get some face time with Paisley.



"Make her leave," Miss Piggy told Paisley when Underwood returned to the stage.

"You and me, we're like bacon and eggs," Paisley told Miss Piggy.

Even pop wonderboy Justin Bieber was going country for Nashville's biggest night – sort of.

Taking a playful jab at the teen's recent paternity suit, country veteran Little Jimmy Dickens channeled the baseball-cap rocking singer.

"Justin, this scandal has really aged you," Underwood joked.

"Like a week ago, you had no wrinkles or liver spots."
