Even the CMAs were bit by the Star Wars bug!

With the famous franchise coming back to theaters for its seventh installment, fans everywhere have been going nuts for its release, even country fans!

CMA hosts Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley kicked off the star studded night with a Star Wars-themed skit. Carrie was “Princess Carrie Fisher” and Brad was “Guitar Solo“.

They run through the dressing rooms telling all the singers that the Star Wars opening monologue has been cancelled!

Princess Carrie Fisher runs to tell Little Big Town the news, who are playing instruments, wearing alien masks like Figrin D’an and the Modal Nodes, the alien band from Star Wars.

Guitar Solo runs into a Stormtrooper in the hallway and tell him the bad news, who ends up being none other than Daruis Rucker! He took the news well, so Carrie made the obvious joke, “That Daruis, he’s such a trooper!” 

Finally, they tell the villain of the bunch, Garth Vader, who turns out to be Luke Bryan, but not before Princess Carrie Fisher declares her love for Guitar Solo!

Watch the hilarious opening scene below!
