Planning A Country Twanged Party in Time for Tonight's CMT Awards

Invite Nashville into your home by hosting a CMT awards viewing party tonight

No need to worry about finding the perfect party soundtrack Tonight. CMT is providing a playlist of some of country’s biggest and best during its 11th annual awards show, airing tonight at 8/7c.

Can’t make it to out to Nashville? No need to worry. I Got You. Adding some country charm to your viewing party is Easy to do, as long as you serve the right food and cocktails.

While you might be tempted to serve some Georgia Peaches, Southern style cucumber salad, and other Southern specialties, you can’t host a CMT viewing party without featuring some of Tennessee’s famous barbecue.

As you probably know, country music provides the perfect excuse to drink. Just listen to any of this year’s nominees’ lyrics if you need further proof. I for one enjoy listening to Kenny Chesney’s You and Tequila, while I have a Drink in My Hand. So don’t forget to offer your guests some tequila, whiskey, beer, Poison and Wine.

But while you’re mixing up these cocktails, don’t reach for a Glass. Think about stocking up on some Red Solo Cups instead. This way clean up becomes a cinch, and that leaves you with plenty of time to “proceed to party...”
