Mean Tweets: Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, Little Big Town play along

Posted on


A few weeks ago, our country’s president read a few primo insults about himself from Twitter on Jimmy Kimmel Live for the second time. Now our country music stars are playing along with the second annual CMA-themed Mean Tweets.

Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton, Miranda Lambert, Florida Georgia Line, Little Big Town, Dan + Shay, and Trace Adkins were among those offering up their social media humiliation by celebrating some of the barbs thrown their way. Want to see Lambert recite, “In case of a national emergency, all air traffic will be redirected to Miranda Lambert’s forehead”? Or Willie Nelson announce, “Willie Nelson, you’re getting pretty crusty, pal.” Or Dolly Parton talk about patterning her look after a hooker, or Chris Stapleton trying not to laugh as he uses the phrase “an insane pubic hair situation”? Enjoy your countrified Mean Tweets, America.
