Follow our Deal Divas correspondent live at the CMA awards tonight!
If you're smart, you will always maintain at least one friend who is way cooler than you. This way, you can both mooch off their accomplishments AND have something to aim for. I have several friends who are cooler than I am, but let's not get caught up in numbers. I'm too fragile. One such friend is Tracey Henry, a writer and sometimes-contributor to the Times Whoa, Momma! blog. I met Tracey years ago when I profiled her alter ego, Suburban Diva, for a story in the Times. We clicked and became fast friends right away. THEN SHE MOVED TO NASHVILLE, BOO.
Anyway, Tracey's hubs is a hockey executive, and this year they scored invites to the Country Music Association Awards in Nashville -- the red carpet, the show AND an after party. Tracey is a mother of four, hilarious and down to Earth, who loves to stalk celebrities just as much as your fave Deal Divas. Naturally, we wanted to follow her tweets tonight.
You should, too. Check out Tracey's tweets from the CMA's tonight at @Subdiva. Will Billy Ray Cyrus revive the mullet? Will Taylor Swift leave the bathroom with toilet paper on her shoe? Will Garth Brooks finally take credit for starting the color blocking trend way back in the 90s? Will Keith Urban's frosted hair look better than Nicole Kidman's? Will Miranda Lambert light any men on fire?
As long security doesn't confiscate Tracey's phone, we'll use her tweets tomorrow to recap some of the fashions she spies tonight. Jealous.
