CMA Awards hosts Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood tore into ObamaCare during their comedic and musical intro on Wednesday night's telecast.

The duo poked fun at Miley Cyrus, Luke Bryan, and Dolly Parton, but their best jabs may have come at the faulty Affordable Care Act website's expense.

After the country crooner “injured” himself Twerking, Paisley said he might enroll. “I started signing up last Thursday and I’m almost done,” quipped Carrie.

The duo then went on to try getting Paisley signed up for health insurance, launching into a parody song spoofing the ACA's infamously problematic roll-out.

It was pretty funny. Check out the routine below:

The 2013 CMA Awards featured plenty of memorable moments, but perhaps none more surprising than the stars of Duck Dynasty twerking on stage.

If you can call it that. We're not really sure what that was ... but it was great!

Hosts Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood kicked off the show with a country-fied version of Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines." Their version? "Duck Blind."

Carrie and Brad's rendition was basically about how great country girls are, and helped served as a perfect introduction for the Robertson family cameo.

You haven't lived until you've seen Willie Robertson sort of twerking.

Willie and brother Jase Robertson then presented the first award.

Who's your favorite Robertson, Willie or Jase?

Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley hosted the CMA Awards for the sixth time Wednesday night, and it seemed like old hat to these country music pros.

Good cop, bad cop is a strategy they've employed before, and they worked it to perfection at the 2013 CMA Awards, with Brad playing bad as usual.

Carrie got in her digs (at Blake Shelton and Obamacare, among other targets), but the bulk of the mostly good-natured verbal shots were fired by Paisley.

Among his top targets? Miley Cyrus stands out, first and foremost.

Yes, the Bangerz singer with a penchant for Twerking came up as Paisley addressed Taylor Swift, who he thanked for being so squeaky-clean and joked:

"I want to thank you from a grateful industry," he said, "for never once humping a teddy bear or gyrating with Beetlejuice. I really appreciate it. I know it's not easy."

Carrie Underwood performed at the 2013 Emmy Awards on Sunday night, honoring The Beatles and the late President John F. Kennedy, who died in 1963.

She was there to honor the role TV played in the assassination of JFK, and the great rock band performing on The Ed Sullivan Show for the first time.

Both events took place within a few months of each other in 1963-1964.

Don Cheadle presented a moving tribute for the 50th anniversary of JFK’s assassination (November 22, 1963), then turned his attention to the Fab Four.

Don started JFK’s assassination tribute by saying:

"That [era] was the moment when the television generation came of age. More people got information from TV, such as Martin Luther King Jr.’s historic march."

In addition NBC's Sunday Night Football theme song, country superstar Carrie Underwood can be seen at the Emmy Awards this Sunday night on CBS.

The six-time Grammy Award winner will perform during a special tribute honoring the 50th anniversary of 1963 television milestones. Why is that significant?

With Faith Hill busy worrying about Tim McGraw being gay, Carrie Underwood took over last night as the voice of Sunday night football on NBC.

The gorgeous Grammy winner and former American Idol championed open the network's coverage of the NFL - specifically this week's Giants/Cowboys game - by telling viewers that she's also been waiting all day for Sunday night, while hitting some impressive high notes and being her generally awesome self.

Compare Carrie's take on the track with the one that ran for six years prior and then vote below:

Which of the artists would you rather... listen to sing about Sunday night football?

Carrie Underwood is a champion performer, taking a nasty fall on stage in Corpus Christi, Tex., but rallying to finish the concert despite a sprained foot.

The country star was performing her hit song "Undo It" when she kicked her heel back and it got caught in the tail of her shirt, which seems unlikely.

But we're talking about five-inch stilettos and a long, flowing shirt here, because it's Carrie Underwood, and while she looks great, it's asking for trouble.

A pretty nasty spill followed. Being a pro's pro, she didn't miss a note. But it HURT.

Later, the 30-year-old tweeted: "Hey, remember that time in Corpus Christi when that girl busted her butt on stage?! Hilarious! Oh, wait, that was me!"

Well played. Except that it wasn't her butt, but her foot that was sprained. Look:

If Carrie Underwood needs a fallback career, she's a natural TV news anchor!

The blonde beauty co-hosted Good Morning America on Monday, which may be more familiar territory to the country music queen than people realize.

She majored in mass communications, with an emphasis in journalism, in graduating from Northeastern State University in Oklahoma back in 2006.

Yes, the American Idol is a college graduate and former journalism student, so delivering a little celebrity gossip and news on air? Totally natural.

Watch her deliver the latest scoop on GMA's "Pop News" segment below!

She's right, too, Jennifer Lawrence's Vogue cover really is buzz-worthy.

Carrie Underwood may have won big last night at the 2013 CMT Awards.

But it wasn't the Video of the Year trophy in her arms that folks were talking about after the show ended. It was her moving tribute to the victims of last month's Oklahoma tornado.

With shots of the storm-ravaged are playing in the background, Underwood was backed by a choir for the beautiful rendition of this single.

She also donated $1 million to the Red Cross' relief efforts last month and continues to prove that she's as classy as they come. Watch the tribute now:

So, what did you do on Saturday night?

Carrie Underwood? She celebrated the eight-year anniversary of her American Idol victory by taking to the stage with The Rolling Stones in Toronto. Yes, those Rolling Stones!

Tweeted the superstar soon afterward:

I just sang with the @RollingStones! Holy cow! I walked off stage and said, “What just happened?!” Still can’t believe it! :).

Watch the musicians sing "It's Only Rock & Roll" now:
