Not one to miss out on any of the fun, Ellen DeGeneres sent her producer, Andy Zenor, to cover the 2019 CMA Awards, where he chatted with the stars of country music.

Zenor, decked out in a hilarious cowboy outfit complete with tassels, a bolo tie and the shortest of shorts, enlisted the likes of Russell Dickerson, Kelsea Ballerini and Brothers Osborne to play wacky games like miniature cornhole and “tequila or water.” Other activities included grab-bag gifts with Sheryl Crow and Kristin Chenoweth singing a country-style rendition of Lizzo’s “Juice.”

The highlight of the segment consisted of Zenor convincing pop powerhouse P!nk to play a game of “tequila tube,” in which the singer had to blast a tube filled with tequila in the producer’s face. As expected, the game did not go well, with Zenor getting sprayed in the eye and the members of Lady Antebellum finding themselves caught in the crossfire.

“This was awful Ellen, was this your idea?” P!nk jokingly asked the talk show host immediately after participating.

Zenor also ran into The Bachelor stars Colton Underwood and Cassie Randolph, Old Dominion and Dustin Lynch to finish off a laugh-filled night at the CMA Awards red carpet.
