Rob at the Academy of Country Music Awards, YEEHAW!

Yeehaw Good Times!!!

Dear Rob,

I guess to help promote Water for Elephants you and Reese will be presenting an Award at the American Country Music awards in April. Yes, I’ll let that sink in… you at the country music awards… because circus’s (circuses/circi?) and country music… hand and glove or whatever they say. So because I spent must of the day chuckling thinking about you and Reba dishing the dirt about Twilight or you and Keith Urban talking about flat irons and how you refused and how he embraced. So since I love myself some country music and some Rob and the potential awesomeness of the situation I’ve spent all day coming up with this list…

Rob at the ACM awards with Reese Witherspoon. This is funny because…

  • Reese resurrects her June Cash and Rob tries to mumble through a Johnny Cash song.
  • Trace Adkins/Vince Gil/Randy Travis introduces Rob as that sparkly vampire his daughter likes and we all cringe.
  • Robert Pattinson’s understanding of country music is only slightly more advanced than his knowledge of theoretical particle physics
  • I would say having an englishman at a country music awards show is like having George W. Bush at at the Source awards but then I remember Mumford & Sons… well… nevermind?

Rob ordered this in a Heineken version

  • Will Rob find a pair of Wranglers at the thrift store and have them pressed and starched for the event? Or will he find a retro country music jumpsuit a la Jimmy Fallon and make Reese wear a matching one?
  • Damn Oscars you got burned! Rob does the Country Awards show and can’t be bothered with your Fighters and your Swans or your Winter Boning.
  • The possibility that Taylor Swift may perform “Back to December” and you may cry because you were a HUGE Swiftner supporter. Weren’t we all??
  • Rob will return to set and tell everyone he’s “gonna put a boot in their ass cause it’s the American way…” and that “all his exes live in Texas.”

April 3rd can’t come soon enough friends and Rob. I’m taking bets now on whether you will be wearing a 10 gallon hat, belt buckle or really over the top exotic animal skin boots and whether he throws in a “yall” or a “howdy” to his banter. Place your bets ladies…

Shock and Ya’ll!
Which song do you want Rob to duet on? So answer the question I posed… Rob on the ACM’s is funny because…

Our internet game is ridiculous: LTT, The Forum, Twitter, The Store

    Honestly, I read this yesterday on like or something and I’m still baffled by it. I admit I’m going to be watching it like people watch a car accident. Lots of cringing and hiding my eyes. Thank God he’s only presenting and not anything more extensive.

  2. drsaka says:

    Well, it’s one way to boost ratings and at least we will get to see him!!!

  3. dazzledtodeath says:

    Well this was a bit of a surprise. I wondered what on earth made the people that run the ACM(?) ask Rob to present-was it because he road-tripped through the south last summer? Because they saw how good Rob looks in a funny hat (with an alligator draped around him) and they wanted to give him another opportunity to wear a funny hat? Did someone from the ACM hear about his karaoke and invite him to mumble through a medley of classic country hits? Or, like everyone else, do they just want a piece of Rob because he’ll have people watching who ordinarily wouldn’t even know what ACM stood for (me)?

    • melronin says:

      Ummmm…all of the above???

      Was a trickquestion d2d right??? ๐Ÿ˜€

      • dazzledtodeath says:

        yes,you got it, the answer was D, all of the above ๐Ÿ™‚ Actually the real reason Rob was asked is that the ACM saw his trucker profile and thought he was a perfect fit with their target demographic, not realizing that he’s actually a Brit with dainty hands who can barely handle a car let alone a truck.

        • melronin says:

          LMFAO!!! you die me bb…

        • natteringyeahrobber says:

          I searched deep in the LTR archives and found the profile you speak of. OMG – HILARITY. I’d not seen that before, but that profile was pure genius. Rob, I’d be your mudflap mama anytime!

        • bren says:

          and you know for a fact he cant handle a truck or a car because…………………..? someone mentioned he had dainty hands, he has the hands of a musician. next time you go to the orchestra, take a look at the hands. seriously…

  4. melronin says:

    Dunno why..but since I heard of Rob presenting at those Country Music Awards in Las Vegas…I am picturing him dressed like Elvis…with a cowboyhat… putting on that exact same Elvissmirk and singing “you give me fever”… to me…

    Am delusional I know…but still…

    You give me fever babe!!!!!!!!

  5. RobsFan-tasy says:

    ROTFLMAO!! You all know why!

    RE: โ€ขRob will return to set and tell everyone heโ€™s โ€œgonna put a boot in their ass cause itโ€™s the American wayโ€ฆโ€ and that โ€œall his exes live in Texas.โ€

    BWAhahahahahaha… Soo much I could say….Oh LOrd I know where I’ll be spending my day today!!

    Mybe he’ll pull a Micheal Douglas and go get that gator in BR and make himself some alligator boots!!! LOL

    He may be English but imma dyin to hear him pull off a Jackson Rathbone style Souhern Drawl.

    “Mam’ Robert Pattinson at your service Mam” *tips his hat and bows*

    *giggles* YaY Patt-N-Spoon!!!!

    • robsfuturemate says:

      I love Jewel of the Nile!!! Esp the part where he comes sailing down NY and shows the boots! Maybe they should do a remake ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Vera says:

        I think that the movie is “Romancing the stone”, he comes sailing down NY, showing the boots. They were made of aligator skin, that had eaten a precious stone and afterwards was killed by Michael Douglas.

        The movie remake would be a great idea.

  6. robsfuturemate says:

    Like some mentioned yesterday, this will be the first time I willing watch a Country music show. I love all kinds of music but country is near the bottom of the list. Won’t my fam be surprised to see me sit down and watch?!

    • ThinWildMercury says:

      I do love me some country but not the kind they honour at ACM awards.
      But I was dying to watch this one. Too bad they dont broadcast it live in India(I think).

    • natteringyeahrobber says:

      Yes, I’ve already told DH that I’m going to have to clear our schedule on Sunday night to watch the ACM awards. He gave me a “WTF” sort of look – he’ll get it soon enough. I hope Rob’s on early on in the show, but I’m guessing they’ll save him until the end.

      • Maggie says:

        I told my DH the same thing. He looked at me like I was nuts and told me to record it. I told him to plan on watching it live or he can go into his office and watch sports or reruns of Two and 1/2 Men or whatever in there, cause Country is comin’ to our LA family room!

        He thinks I’m insane. Who cares. I’m gonna Pat and Spoon with Pattinspoon all night long. Yee Hah!!

        I’m really curious to see what Rob wears. I wonder if there will be an argument between him and his “dressers”.

        • natteringyeahrobber says:

          Maybe he can come dressed for High Noon. Pinstriped pants and vest, white shirt, two belts, a ribbon tie, and boots. I mean, he’s got Gary Cooper tall drink of coolnes and she’s got Grace Kelly knock-out blondeness. Could almost work.

  7. robgirl86 says:

    Rob Denver…take me home…country road….to the place, where I belong….lalalalala…NOPE, not mine.. ๐Ÿ™‚
    BUT I will appreciate tight jeans, a tight shirt and THE HAT! and BOOTS!

    Dear Rob,
    wear boots please …..
    sooooo HOT
    P.S. btw, the things I do for you…now a country show, oh man!

    • melronin says:

      Hot boots…hot tight jeans…hot tight shirt…..
      you’re my kinda girl RG!!!

      Rob…please surprise us and wear that cowboyhat. Am sure you will give THE HAT a totes new meaning!!!

    • Brenn says:

      I was going to say the same thing!

      Tight jeans, preferably button fly. *swoon*
      Boots…. um YES PLEASE
      Tight shirt (no plaid allowed!)

      No hat, just sex hair. And facial scruff.

      I think I just died a little.

  8. RobsFan-tasy says:

    I’d watch that Just hear himsay “el tanedor del diablo!” LOL (Err however you spell it!)

    • robsfuturemate says:

      Hahaha! There’s another fave quote and I can’t think of what it is right now. Guess I know what I’ll be thinking about all day! (something with gators, lol)

  9. superhumanmoron says:

    I have a friend who usually works on the ACM show, but I don’t think she is this year. Sucks for her!

  10. natteringyeahrobber says:

    I don’t listen to much country music now, but my grandmother used to watch Hee-Haw with me. I don’t remember much about that show except there was someone in pigtails, someone in a hat with a price tag still on it, and lots of cornball sketches. THIS SHOW NEEDS TO BE REMADE. With Rob as host. Can’t you all see him in drag as a granny with a hat with a price tag still on it, or dancing around in overalls, serenading and feeding slop to the pigs?

    Or maybe he can sing “Happy Trails To You” as he suggestively puts his hands near his groin. And gyrates like Elvis.

    So much potential here. I’m sure we’ll just 5 seconds of Rob on the ACM, but any Rob is good Rob.

    • robsfuturemate says:

      The Lady with the price tag hat is Minnie Pearl!! (my friend named her dog after her)

    • dazzledtodeath says:

      OMG my father used to watch HeeHaw! What a corny show. Haven’t thought about that in ages. Rob as host-I think he would be completely lost amidst all the cornball (read: not funny) humor and stereotypical “country” sets )wasn’t there a lot of hay? I remember hay..)

      I would, however, love to see Rob singing Happy Trails to You! In low-rise boxer briefs and a cowboy hat. Maybe a lasso?

      • natteringyeahrobber says:

        Yes Rob would be totally bizarro in Heehaw but that is what would make the show work. Hot Brit hosting corny American sketch comedy show. And pull Anne Hathaway out of her post Oscar hidey-hole to co-host. Rob could perform on piano and guitar (think old Hank Williams songs) . Hire some good writers and it could work.

    • drsaka says:

      Yes, I watched Hee Haw too as a little girl, oh boy. At least some of the guests were good musicians, sigh……
      I did like Minnie Pearl, though.
      As a side note, the only other musical program we had was Soul Train!!!!

      • natteringyeahrobber says:

        Sigh…Soul Train. I remember watching that with my jaw dropped – everyone was such a good dancer, had all the right moves, and I was (and still am) hopeless. Except square dancing, I did manage to do well with that. Didn’t Rob recently mention that he wished he could be a better dancing? Maybe I can partner with him on Square Dancing with Stars.

        • Brenn says:

          I can see it now — NYR and Rob — ‘promenade and doe-si-doe!’

          Oh, the fun you’d have. ๐Ÿ˜‰

          • natteringyeahrobber says:

            Oh, to Allemande Left Allemande Right with Rob. I have a feeling he’d love it.

          • Maggie says:

            I could do the do-si-do with Rob all night. I also wouldn’t mind Slipping the Clutch, Boxing the Gnat, Flutterwheeling, Bending the Line, See Sawing or doing some -All Around the Left Hand, Lady- with him. (Don’t ask me what these are – I just googled “Square Dance moves” and picked the ones that sounded like something that I’d like to do with/to Rob!)

            Yah Hoo!!

          • robsfuturemate says:

            I love square dancing! We learned how to do it in 5th grade. I’ll take TomStu as my partner and we just need two more couples for our square!!

          • Maggie says:

            I think we can get nat and AGarf……

          • Maggie says:

            Maybe someone can bring Jackson? (Rft: I ALREADY have dibs on Rob. Want to bring Jackson?) Wow. Now that would be one square dance I would FLOVE to be a part of…

          • ThinWildMercury says:

            If anything happens to any of the couples, can Jackson and I be the spare couple?

          • natteringyeahrobber says:

            Maggie – I’ll take AGarf in a heartbeat. I’m sure I’ll get a turn with Rob at some point, so it’s all good. A LTR barn dance with the BritPack. It could not possibly get more fun than that.

          • Maggie says:

            Well, twm, no one’s claimed Jackson yet, so I think you’re in. Yippee-i-oh-cai-yeah, we sure have some hot men to pass around in this square. Grab your partners and let’s start the stompin’!!!

          • robsfuturemate says:

            Nice! The thing I (now) love about Square Dancing is the constant changing of partners!!!

            Dear Rob,Tom, Andrew and Jackson,
            You are cordially invited to the 1st annual LTR Barn Dance. Get yer boots on and get ready for a Rootin Tootin Good Time!

            Maggie, Nat, RFM and TWM

            PS- Feel free to invite Sam, Bobby, Johnny, Lee and any of your other friends. I’m sure there are plenty of ladies who would love to dance!

  11. drsaka says:

    If Rob is going to mumble through a Johnny Cash song, can I nominate ‘Folsom Prison Blues’?

    • ThinWildMercury says:

      I was gonna post that, you beat me to the punch!

    • The Old One says:

      I’m partial to Johnny Cash singing “Hurt” which was a Trent Reznor (Nine Inch Nails) song, not really country. I could totally see Rob doing that.

  12. sharon says:

    I am lovin’ this yawl! This is why we love Rob so much. He has no fear of the unknown, or should I say he has no fear of that he knows nothing of? Either way he continues to amaze me with his game on up for anything attitude. This is really no big surprise to me, after all he climbed up in a tree with Jimmy Fallon. What’s the big deal about him wearing a cowboy hat? He already said his favorite city was Houston, why I couldn’t tell you. I’m a Texan and I can’t even explain that one. Houston, really Rob? Truthfully, I don’t care what show he is on, I’m watching it.

    • drsaka says:

      I was guessing that he might have meant Austin??? No offense to the fine city of Houston.

    • natteringyeahrobber says:

      Texas. Well, maybe his heart just that big.

      Reminds me of that Lyle Lovett song:

      So won’t you let me help you Mister
      Just pull your hat down the way I do
      And buy your pants just a little longer
      And next time somebody laughs at you
      That’s right you’re not from Texas
      But Texas wants you anyway.

  13. southernbelle says:

    Yeehaw! Bwahahah well, well, well! I didn’t expect him to but I ain’t complaining! The more I get to see Rob, the better!

    I’m wondering now too what he’s gonna wear ;).

  14. southernbelle says:

    Dear Rob,

    Please wear cowboy boots…..some sexy cowboy boots please! And a cowboy hat! How about some stir-ups? Oh never mind that, just make sure you have some tight-a** blue jeans and I’m sure all the ladies will be happy!

    *Oh honey what ever shall I do?*



  15. Keisha says:

    I can’t even imagine Rob in Vegas. He better take TomStu!!

  16. Bea says:

    Can he please please please sing “She Thinks My Tractor’s Sexy”? He and Reese could act it out. I would giggle for days on end.

  17. This is for Moon and Stacey:
    CMA’s = Rob in a Sam shirt!

  18. roslynselene says:

    I’ll see Rob in any award show (I’m lying). But at least it wasn’t the Kid’s Award or some crap like that. And this probably means hilarity will ensue. Seriously Rob, take our advice and dress for the occasion (boots, wranglers, etc).

    OT: My sister’s school is doing a fund raiser and she has to go door to door and sell magazine subscriptions and cheesecake. Yeah, idk who came up with that combo. Anywho, she has a pamphlet with all types of magazines and under the “Men’s Favorite” section they have Rob’s 2009 GQ cover. Lol I dunno, I just thought that was pretty hilarious.

  19. roslynselene says:

    Looks like Paul Giamatti is fangirl-ing again:

    โ€œHeโ€™s great! Absolutely love the guy!โ€ ๐Ÿ˜€

  20. Janetrigs says:

    How is it that this blog always gets more comments then the other? It’s the hot dude, isn’t it?

    Oh Ron, now you’re one of “those” guys at an awards show where commenters are like, why is he here? And it’s not even like your movie has to deal with country musak. So odd. Whatever.

  21. Vera says:

    He’d appear with a soft beard and dressed for the ocasion, it means chess shirt, very very tight jeans – it wonยดt let anything to imagination and boots.

    Better off if he sings “She believes in me” by Kenny Rogers

    While she lays sleeping, I stay out late at night and play my songs
    And sometimes all the nights can be so long
    And it’s good when I finally make it home, all alone
    While she lays dreaming, I try to get undressed without the light
    And quietly she says how was your night?
    And I come to her and say, it was all right, and I hold her tight

    And she believes in me, I’ll never know just what she sees in me
    I told her someday if she was my girl, I could change the world
    With my little songs, I was wrong
    But she has faith in me, and so I go on trying faithfully
    And who knows maybe on some special night, if my song is right
    I will find a way, find a way…

    While she lays waiting, I stumble to the kitchen for a bite
    Then I see my old guitar in the night
    Just waiting for me like a secret friend, and there’s no end
    While she lays crying, I fumble with a melody or two
    And I’m torn between the things that I should do
    And she says to wake her up when I am through,
    God her love is true…

    And she believes in me, I’ll never know just what she sees in me
    I told her someday if she was my girl, I could change the world
    With my little songs, I was wrong
    But she has faith in me, and so I go on trying faithfully
    And who knows maybe on some special night, if my song is right
    I will find a way, while she waits… while she waits for me for me!

    Sorry I couldnยดt resist to such a mental picture.

  22. natalie_MKH says:

    Rob on the ACM’s is funny because…

    Kristen really wants a pic with Miley and to tell her how inspired she was by ‘The Climb’. And he was her only in.

    I want to see him with Little Jimmy Dickens.

    Assuming he walks the red carpet, he will surprise us by how much he really does know and enjoy classic country music.

    • roslynselene says:

      Lol Little Jimmy Dickens. Who’s that? Sounds like an Oatmeal name like Mr. Jimmy McJimbers.

    • robsfuturemate says:

      Yeah, I was going to go with a Miley/Rob duet of The Climb but thought “it’s not really country”. Oh well, still funny!

  23. Babiesbrown says:

    Oh, God, I wish he could’ve gone when Minnie Pearl was still alive. She would have been so cute with him.
    For my money, I want to see him with Loretta Lynn, and I want her to sing “You Ain’t Woman Enough to Take my Man,” while he stands there and looks hot.
    Yep. They could cut to shots of KStew looking pissed off from the wings.

  24. Maggie says:

    New WFE pics.

    WFE is released = Maggie dies from hottness emanating from the screen.

    • roslynselene says:

      ๐Ÿ˜ฏ Whaaaaa?! *drools* How did I NOT know about this?! Thanks for the link!

    • RobsFan-tasy says:

      HOLY SHIZZ MAGGIE!!! The Entertainment weekly cover?

    • roslynselene says:

      Okay, okay. Three things-
      1: Reese, Rob, and Tai look stunning.
      2: The word “Twilight” is stamped on the cover because…? I mean, the size of the word “Twilight” is HUGE. A blind person can see it.
      3: Celebrity GPS? Did they not see that the Where’s Rob App was already invented? (Alright, show of hands. Who bought the app? Hmmm?)

    • natteringyeahrobber says:

      Only a few more weeks now. I cannot wait. I have not been this excited about a movie release in a long time!

      • robsfuturemate says:

        hehehe! It’s less than a month away now! I’m not sure how I’m gonna survive this movie but I’ll manage somehow ๐Ÿ˜‰

        • roslynselene says:

          Hey! Have you guys entered the WFE private screening sweepstakes? Not just for the peeps in LA but near YOUR hometown! ๐Ÿ™‚

          • robsfuturemate says:

            Not yet. Can I come to yours if you win? How many people can invite? Guess, I better check out the link ๐Ÿ˜‰

          • robsfuturemate says:

            All signed up! Apparently you can enter everyday for more chances to win. And you can have up to 50 people at your screening, so LTR girls get first dibs if I win!

          • roslynselene says:

            I entered yesterday and re-entered today. If I win, I’ll bring the ones in LA (so I expect anyone in LA who wins to hook us up too.) ๐Ÿ˜‰ It’s only fair and rules are rules. The same rules apply if you win a date with Rob; you MUST bring all the local LTR girls too.

          • robsfuturemate says:

            IF I win a date with Rob you girls can come but you must sit in the peanut gallery and try to keep the swooning to a low moan!

          • roslynselene says:

            Bless and damn you. How do you expect me to keep my moans to a minimum? I must SHRIEK to the heavens and gates of hell!


  25. robsfuturemate says:

    Here’s why I didn’t know about Bear. It was missing from the set of clips!!

    For the rest of you how missed it ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • robsfuturemate says:

      oops! who not how

      • Maggie says:

        Those clips were SO annoying to try to watch.

        • roslynselene says:

          SO many interruptions! I’ve tried twice to rewatch the whole thing but I can never make it past the third clip. Damn you, MTV. Why thirty one clips!?

          • natteringyeahrobber says:

            EXTREMELY annoying. You have to be a hardcore Rob fan to get through them all…no actually, not even the hardcore can do it. PURE TORTURE. Fortunately I saw the livestream, but then I went back to try and watch it again and gave up after the 9th clip. So lame.

          • robsfuturemate says:

            That’s how I orginally watched them. But when I was trying to find the “dog” clip I gave up after a few. I mean, Rob was great and all but the MTV music intro was getting on my nerves!

  26. twiprof says:

    my two worlds collide! Rob will finally meet Taylor Swift! Their paths almost intersect, but now, finally, they can discuss taylor lautner and Hailey from Paramore, their two mutual friends….AMAZING! to be a fly on the wall….

  27. roslynselene says:

    Alright alright, I can’t sleep so here I am at one o’clock in the morn watching Family Guy and Conway Twitty shows up only to make me imagine Rob singing this:

    Oh man I’m in a fit of giggles. It’s too much…

  28. robsfuturemate says:

    Conway Twitty reminded me that I would love to see Rob sing “Hillybilly Bone.” (sorry girls it’s not dirty) All about how everyone has a Hillybilly bone down deep inside, (maybe it is) a little bit of country. Anyway, my country friend (the one with the HeeHaw dogs) made that my theme song and I think it would be perfect for Rob too!

      • roslynselene says:

        Oh God, Rob would do that. Show up with a jean jacket and plaid to a fancy restaurant. LMAO

        Did you guys read the new Rob interview w/ ET magazine? I LOVE it! So many funny moments and he said “master of the universe” when it comes to what his character in Cosmopolis is about. I like this interview. I haven’t read one like that in a while.

        • robsfuturemate says:

          Yes, the MOTU ref was perfect!! And I think that this interviewer finally got Rob right on paper. “Because you’re funny and I don’t think people know that.” Oh, we do! But we’re very glad you noticed.

  29. che says:

    i dunno why but he looked like a soap opera star to me on EW cover

    • natteringyeahrobber says:

      Yah, the EW photo seems a little airbrushed, and Reese has a funny look on her face (probably because she’s trying REALLY HARD not to touch his hair).

      Dear Rob,

      If you need any assistance in learning how to “revel in your physicality”, I’m here. Square dancing might help with that, actually. See above.

      Also, I do have a small club house in my back yard. And a cot and a sleeping bag and a lantern. No one will find you there. It has Wi-Fi access too so you can buy all the Amtrak jackets you want on ebay. I’ll bring chicken tikka out for dinner anytime you want. My kids would love to play with you too – they are a bit like zebras, though, all wily and prone to running right at you.

      Finally, a MoTU reference???? I know you know. Now all you need to do is say “letters to Rob” in an interview and I’ll know you know. Which reminds me of another Lyle Lovett song (see! I do know some country music after all).

      Even the stars will pass away
      And the sun will burn to coal
      And even men will hear the angels say
      (s)He was a fool to let it show

      But I know you know
      And there ain’t nothing I can do
      I know you know
      I know you know
      I’m so in love with you


    • robsfuturemate says:

      I agree but it was way better than that alligator Amish cover!!

    Giddyap and ridem cowboy! Rob’s going to present at the Country Music Awards… !!
