All About Those Duets
She may be "All About That Bass," but 20-year-old pop phenom Meghan Trainor has plenty in common with country's reigning princess Miranda Lambert. While Trainor's catchy-as-hell tracks rely heavily on doo-wop and hip-hop influences, her lyrics share the themes of female empowerment and positive body image that are part and parcel of Lambert's catalog. Another unique pairing of the night will see former Nickelodeon star and current pop sensation Ariana Grande teamed with reigning CMA Vocal Group Little Big Town. The artistic connection there isn't as clear but based on past LBT CMA performances, it should be memorable.
