Carrie Underwood and Wynonna Judd Dis Taylor Swift
Though it’s hard to believe, not everyone is thrilled with Taylor Swift these days.
Former American Idol fave Carrie Underwood and country-music legend Wynonna Judd both took a little shine off of the Fearless singer’s golden moment last night, as she swept the Country Music Awards, scoring all four honors that she had been nominated for.
Underwood, who co-hosted the ceremony, seemed to take a sideways dig at Swift during the CMAs’ closing moments, as fellow co-host Brad Paisley sang Swift’s praises. Gushed Paisley,
“How ’bout that? Nineteen-years old…Congratulations, Taylor. What a night. I can’t even imagine a better….”
At which point Underwood—who, perhaps not coincidentally, lost out on the Female Vocalist of the Year award to Swift—cut in:
“And how were we? We were awesome!”
Geez, jealous much, Carrie?
Judd, meanwhile, was more forthright in her dismissal of Swift. Speaking to USA Today before the show, opined that Swift, at 19 years of age, is too young to deserve the Entertainer of the Year CMA:
“You want my honest comment? It’s too much too soon. Time is God’s way of keeping everything from happening at once. It’s just too much of a good thing too soon.”
Judd, 45, continued,
“My thing is, being a home-school mom, I want kids to earn it, and I think some time…’cause mom and I rode in a car for the first year of our career to visit radio stations. There was a making of the star, there was a rising up, and the fans went with us…Now it’s over coffee breaks, the success, almost.”
What does a gal have to do to get some respect in the industry?
