Because no one ever lets you forget it.
Once upon a time, LeAnn Rimes made country music, back when Bush was just starting as President and the world had yet to see it's first Harry Potter movie.
Someone from the Academy of Country Music must have forgotten that she is a has-been and invited her and her beau, Eddie Cibrian to the CMA's last night. Eddie was even asked to present an award to Lady Antebellum, but that wasn't the only honor he received.
While on stage, he also had the privilege of hearing the press room go wild, screaming "Cheater!" as he spoke!
Considering the venue, we're surprised they didn't chase you down with shotguns and run you over with their trucks. Now that has the makings of the PERFECT country western song!
