VIDEO: Miranda Lambert “All About That Bass” With Meghan Trainor At CMAs!
Miranda Lambert and Meghan Trainor teamed up at Wednesday’s 2014 CMA Awards for an unforgettable performance of “All About That Bass.” While the duet was announced in the days before the award show, no one knew exactly what the singers had in store.
It ended up being a pretty faithful, but impressive rendition. Lambert and Trainor hit the stage both wearing in retro-style mini-dresses. Backed by a full band, the stars sang side by side, with many in the audience spotted singing along and bopping their heads. Lambert’s husband Blake Shelton was pictured looking on proudly.
Of course, “All About That Bass” is not a country music song, but the soulful, doo-wop track is one of the most successful of the year. The infectious song debuted in June, and since gone platinum three times in the United States. It’s also been on the Billboard Mainstream Top 40 chart for a whopping 14 weeks, peaking at number one in late September… and unseating former country music queen Taylor Swift. And did we mention it’s Trainor’s first-ever song on the chart, let alone her first number one hit? That’s pretty incredible, and now with the Lambert collaboration, she can add another milestone to her growing collection.
Trainor, whose “All About The Bass” was also remixed by Justin Bieber and Maejor Ali last month, is actually no stranger to the country music scene. Though just 20 years old, the star has lived in Nashville for quite some time, and written for major acts like Rascal Flatts. Later this month, she’s up for an American Music Award in the category of New Artist of the Year.
Lambert, of course, is a full-fledged country music superstar. She leads this year’s nominees with nine nods, tying her own record (set in 2010) for the most nominations for a female artist in the awards’ 48-year history. She is once again nominated Female Vocalist of the Year, which she has won for the last four years.
