CMT 2013 Artists of the Year: Tim McGraw, Florida Georgia Line, and more dudes honored -- VIDEO


After seeing the list of CMT’s 2013 Artists of the Year — Tim McGraw, Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Hunter Hayes, and Florida Georgia Line — we had to echo the thoughts of host Ron White at the top of Tuesday night’s show: “You couldn’t find one girl? There’s more sausage backstage than Jimmy Dean’s freezer.” But there’s no denying that the six men dominated country radio this year, and they had some seriously famous admirers on hand to prove it.

McGraw was the night’s first honoree, and after accepting his trophy from Dwight Yoakam, Lady Antebellum took the stage to perform his No. 1 hit “Highway Don’t Care,” with Hillary Scott taking over Taylor Swift’s vocals. Peter Frampton even made an appearance to handle the song’s guitar solo in place of Keith Urban. Watch the performance below:

Jason Aldean on cheating scandal: 'It's been a tough situation'


Oh, Jason Aldean, I have a bone to pick with you.

On Monday, the married country singer opened up about his cheating scandal — Aldean was photographed kissing American Idol contestant Brittany Kerr last month — in an interview with CMT Insider host Katie Cook. He previously apologized for his behavior, claiming he was drunk and acted inappropriately, but this interview is the first time he’s spoken about the impact of the incident on himself and his family.

“I think when it comes to all the things that have been going on lately, I mean, it’s just been a tough situation,” he said. “I know everybody’s kinda going to have their opinion, and for the people that know me and know what I’m about … the people that are standing by us and supporting us, all I’ve got to say to them is thanks. I mean, I really appreciate it, and it’s just been a really unfortunate thing. Really embarrassing, I think, more than anything.”

The full interview will air on Oct. 13 and 14 at 11 a.m. on CMT.
