During the opening for Wednesday night's CMA (Country Music Association) awards, hosts Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood had the crowd in stitches when they unveiled "Obamacare By Morning", a parody of George Strait's classic "Amarillo By Morning".

The political satire was not without its critics as many took to social media to voice their displeasure with the country singers' jab at Obamacare, however the overall reception of the song on the night was amusement. Few were as tickled by the performance as Mr. "Amarillo By Morning" himself, George Strait, shown laughing with a smile from ear to ear in the front row.

Later in the same segment, the Paisley/Underwood duo highlighted the infamous Miley Cyrus/Robin Thicke twerk-filled performance of "Blurred Lines" during MTV's Video Music Awards earlier this year. The hosts performed a "Blurred Lines" parody called "Duck Blinds", a song about hit TV series "Duck Dynasty".
