Last night ABC had a few issues with the audio quality as the show began. This sent many viewers on to watch something else, while true country music fans suffered with poor audio for about 10 min at the start of the show before the issue was corrected. We have the video with good audio quality.

Hank Williams Jr. joins Brad and Carrie on stage to open the show, followed by Brad and Carrie exchanging gifts with each other. The gifts just happen to be Faith Hill and Tim McGraw dolls and the hilarity ensues.

If you missed the beginning of the show or if you just want to watch the opening of the CMA Awards again, here is the video with GOOD audio.
