So, Most Of The 2014 CMT Awards Performances Were Drinking Songs! Cheers!

Piece the night together, performance by boozy performance.

By Emily Blake and Jessica Hyndman

Did anyone else notice that Wednesday night’s 2014 CMT Music Awards had a good time tossing back a few? We’re not judging — it made for a hell of a party — but seriously, it seemed like nearly every performance was about drankin’. Adult beverages if you’re legal, Shirley Temples if you’re not, of course.

So once you’ve slept off your CMT Awards hangover — it’s only Thursday, get it together — piece the night together, performance by boozy performance.

Dierks Bentley Gets Drunk On A Plane

Key lyric: On my way home I’ll bump this seat right up to first class / So I can drink that cheap champagne out of a real glass / And when we land I’ll call her up and tell her kiss my ass / ‘Cause hey, I’m drunk on a plane

Little Big Town Start Early With ‘Day Drinking’

Key lyric: Don’t want to wait til the sun’s sinking / We could be feeling all right / I know you won’t know what I’m thinking / Why don’t we do a little day drinking

Lady Antelbellum Insist: Bartender = Therapist

Key lyric: Hey bartender pour ‘em hot tonight / ‘Til the party and the music and the truth collide / Bring it ‘til his memory fades away

Florida George Line And Luke Bryan Spike ‘Talk Dirty’

Key lyric: The mix in our drink’s a little stronger than you think / So get a grip, take a sip of that feel right

Brantley Gilbert Throws A Tailgate

Key lyric: Drop a tailgate on ya truck / Find a keg and fill ya cup up

Jake Owen Proves You Don’t Even Need Shoes On To Drink

Key lyric: White sand, cold can, koozie in my hand, just a summertime strolling / Chillin’, breezing, sippin’, singin’ whoa / Beachin’

Blake Shelton, Meanwhile, Proposes A More Laid-Back Affair

Key lyric: Yeah the boys ’round here / Drinking that ice cold beer / Talkin’ ’bout girls, talkin’ ’bout trucks / Runnin’ them red dirt roads out, kicking up dust
