Francesca Hetfield and James Hetfield - 2014 Pre-Grammy Gala & Grammy Salute to Industry Icons - Clive Davis at The Beverly Hilton Hotel - Beverly Hills, California, United States - Sunday 26th January 2014
Trip is a young and inexperienced roadie who is charged with the important mission of finding a damaged delivery vehicle and retrieving a valuable item that was on its way to sold-out Metallica concert. However, distracted as he is by the apparent complication of the task ahead, Trip's tour bus is crashed into side-on by a speeding car. Miraculously, he manages to escape with barely more than a scratch though only to find himself amidst a brutal looking battle between a sea of riot police and an army of masked, weapon wielding anarchists. Vehicles have been set alight and a murderous horseman is on the loose in this dystopic street scene as Metallica blare out their loudest, most aggressive hits on stage.
The 2012 CMT Country Music Awards took place on Monday (December 3, 2012) in Nashville but this year, the winners will be kept top secret until Saturday December 8, when the star-studded show will be broadcast at 10pm on CMT. The 90 minute special will be hosted by Rascal Flatts and Hayden Panettiere and will feature performances from some of country music’s biggest stars, as well as appearances from a number of A-list sports and entertainment stars.
Amongst those treading the boards for the illustrious awards show were Jason Aldean, Lady Antebellum, Kenny Chesney and Sheryl Crow and also making an appearance on the night were the Academy Award winning actor Morgan Freeman, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member Sammy Hagar, Metallica’s James Hetfield, the shock-rocker Kid Rock and Miranda Lambert. From the world of sport, the Atlanta Braves’ Chipper Jones put in an appearance, as did the Nashville Predators’ Mike Fisher.
This is the first year that CMT have kept the lid on the list of honorees. As a result, country music fans will have to wait until the weekend if they want a slice of the action, when the 90-minute special is aired. According to CMT’s press release, the show will be “the most exclusive gathering of country music superstars of the year and celebrates the class of 2012 with an incredible evening of wall-to-wall performances and special appearances from others in entertainment.”
