Last night I was only able to watch the last hour of the ACM Awards because we were driving home from a long weekend out of town, but I have been slowly but surely catching up on all the performances I missed thanks to the magic of You Tube.

So far, I have to say that my hands down favorite performance of the night was surprising delivered by Eric Church!  I have never been a HUGE fan of his because I am not sure I have ever bought into the cool kid sunglasses and "outlaw" persona, but I was more than a little impressed with his live version of "Like Jesus Does".  I think he did a beautiful job.

I enjoy the fluff and fireworks sometimes, but there is nothing better than a well written song delivered from the heart...and who knew Eric even had eyeballs behind those sunglasses!?! I guess he traded in his Ray Bans last night for that very fuzzy face. I'm not hating it. You'll get no complaints out of me from this performance.

The question that was popping up all of the internet last night after Eric performed was, "Who was the girl singing backup?"...well, click HERE to learn all about this crazy talented mystery woman, Valerie June.

Great job!
