Caught this when they broadcast the CMAs here in the UK. The two halves were a superlative whole, and no, I’m not apologising. Country music is wine, women, heartache and love. I tend to lean towards the earlier, more bluesy primitive stuff but this was wonderful.

The dance sequence where he tears her tights away is a lovely bit of choreography. Modern dance has done some wonderful things to express the polarity of sexuality within it.
