“Jimmy Kimmel Live!” aired a brand new, country music-themed segment of “mean tweets,” on Nov. 8, following “The 51st Annual CMA Awards.”

Instead of showcasing a broad variety of entertainers, comedian and host Jimmy Kimmel only invited country stars like the Zac Brown Band, Blake Shelton, Luke Combs and Little Big Town to participate by reading aloud some rather embarrassing and rude tweets about themselves.

First up was the Zac Brown Band, whose lead singer seemed less than enthused to read off what one Twitter troll wrote: “The Zac Brown Band is on three radio stations at the same time. As you can imagine this is the worst day of my life #H8Them,” Zac read, while surrounded by his cohorts.

Meanwhile, one comment about Blake Shelton seemed a bit over the top.

“I want to throw Blake Shelton off a highway overpass by his legs and watch him get obliterated by a Peterbuilt pulling a big, stupid house,” Blake read off of a smartphone.

Afterwards, country newcomer Luke Combs appeared in front of the camera to read off his insult.

“If you grow a beard like Luke Combs, don’t grow a beard,” he read with a laugh, then added, “Thank you man, I appreciate that. I’ll take some vitamins for ya.”

As for country group Little Big Town, they got this tweet: “Little Big Town sounds like they threw a bunch of cats in a bag and beat them around with a tennis racket.”
