Blake Shelton rap to open Academy of Country Music Awards

Blake  Shelton opened the Academy of Country Music Awards by rapping and was joined by his friends Luke Bryan, Brad Paisley, Sheryl Crow and the trio Pistol Annie.

"How about a shout out to the Sherwin-Williams company for spray-painting Luke's jeans on," Shelton joked as the camera zoomed in on Bryan's, ahem, mid-section.

Bryan took his turn: "Blake's jeans are like buying something on credit — nothing up front. I mean, what size are those, extra empty?"

The focus of this year's ACM Awards is on the men of country, and it's not just Shelton and Bryan taking the spotlight.

Top nominee Eric Church started the night with an award before he even hit the red carpet, winning vocal event of the year for his collaboration with Bryan and Jason Aldean on "The Only Way I Know."

Fans began lining up early to catch a glimpse of Taylor Swift, Garth Brooks and a host of country stars. One young fan clutched a bouquet of roses and waved a sign bearing a picture of Swift under the words, "Love is True."
