A rigged country vote? A basket of deplorables? "I'm with Carrie."

Hosts Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley (and their writers) certainly found ways to incorporate this year's election into the opening monologue of the Country Music Association Awards.

As they have done in past years, Underwood and Brad used sang portions of their opening monologue and the election quips were right at the beginning.

"Well, the race is on. It's on every single channel and it's making my head spin," the hosts sang. "We're so freaking sick of politics that we don't even care who wins."

They proceeded to sing "this election is taking forever and ever, forever and ever..." to the tune of Travis' "Forever and ever, Amen."
