Pictures from the CMT awards. Luke is dressed exactly as he was in London last week and you'd think it was the same event if you didn't read the notes at the bottom of the pictures. I like the suit but I'm not keen on the shiny grey shirt and tie and those brown shoes (clearer view in the larger picture).
Also, the video of Luke presenting the award with Martina McBride. He's received criticism on Twitter for looking as if he didn't want to be there, and yes he doesn't seem 100% but we all have our ups and downs.
Luke did look great, and he did seem somewhat less than enthused to be there. Maybe he was just tired. He has been on the go to distant places for a while.
Now for my worthless wardrobe critique: I like the suit but it doesn't fit him. Needs altering. I don't care much for the tie and shirt to match; I prefer them not to. Brown shoes with these charcoal-colored clothes seem wrong to me. The shoes should be black.
I actually watched and did see Luke in the audience with a girl. I am almost certain it was the same girl he's been with for a while. What a boring show--I completely commiserate with Luke for seeming unenthused. I sat through the whole thing waiting for him and unfortunately he didn't come on until the end! That was a long couple of hours....
