Oh sure, you are the CMA Awards’ “Entertainer of the Year.”

But even you, Luke Bryan, get your share of mean tweets.

And these mean tweets were certainly exposed on the Wednesday, Nov. 4 episode of “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” which aired on ABC after the 49th annual CMA Awards. On the segment, a bevy of country music’s biggest stars grabbed their iPhones and read aloud some of the not-so-nice things people say about them on Twitter.

And nearly everyone was in on the fun, including Darius Rucker, Rascal Flatts, Carrie Underwood, Brad Paisley, Tim McGraw, Brett Eldredge, Kacey Musgraves and even Willie Nelson.

The great part: Every single artist found a way to laugh at themselves.

And that’s what is so darn cool about country music.
