Mean Tweets

Country stars, country legends read mean tweets about themselves for Jimmy Kimmel

Wednesday night was the Country Music Awards, so it was time for Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, Chris Stapleton, and other country singers to step in front of Jimmy Kimmel's brick-wall set and read mean tweets about themselves for our pleasure, with REM playing in the background. This batch of mean tweets got a little vulgar (though still safe for work), and the musicians were either amused or annoyed as they read the critiques. The other members of Little Big Town thought the dig at Kimberly Schlapman's hair was pretty funny, for example. Brett Eldredge was just fine with being called inebriated-looking and Jana Kramer had a sassy response to being told she had a fake Texas accent, but most of the stars just laughed. Watch below.
