So hilarious AND awkward!

To open the 2015 CMA Awards, Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley took a cue from the cult classic Star Wars.

How unique! It was definitely fun to see Brad as Hans Solo aka “Guitar Solo” and Carrie as “Carrie Fisher”. Ha!

The hysterical opening clip showed the pair running around in their costumes as they frantically tried to alert the other Star Wars characters (Luke Bryan went as Luke Skywalker/Darth Vader, for example), that their bit had been “cut”.

Uh-oh, country drama meets outer space! What were the pair to do?!

…an awkward pop culture duet, apparently!!

Yep, Paisley strummed a simple tune while Underwood belted out the “popular” phrases like “stanky leg”, “cray cray”, and “nae nae”. Sigh.

But wait, it got even more uncomfortable!

Cut to the pair making references to all the breakups of 2015, like Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert‘s sad split! Cringe, anyone?

We did love, however, when the twosome CALLED OUT Josh Duggar for his Ashley Madison cheating scandal! Ha!

Oh, and William Shatner made appearance because he was in Star Trek, NOT Star Wars….get it?!

Yep, this is going to be one inneresting show!! Check out the bits (above)!
