In honor of the 2016 CMA Awards, hosted by Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood, Jimmy Kimmel asked a handful of country musicians to read mean tweets on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Wednesday.

Artists and bands including Trace Adkins, Bonnie Raitt, Randy Houser, Cassadee Pope, Dan + Shay, Cole Swindell, Jana Kramer, Granger Smith, Miranda Lambert, Florida Georgia Line, Jake Owen, Little Big Town, Brett Eldredge, Hunter Hayes, Maren Morris, Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton and Chris Stapleton took turns reading and responding to their Twitter trolls.

Raitt laughed at @Volunterror's tweet: "Bonnie Raitt looks like the aunt who would have a few too many at your mom's birthday party and try to fight your dad." Similarly, Little Big Town's Kimberly Schlapman laughed after a Twitter user said her curly hair looks "like a Zoolander villain." (Bandmates Karen Fairchild, Phillip Sweet and Jimi Westbrook found it even funnier.)

Nelson didn't disagree with @JuicyGing, who told him, "You're getting pretty crusty, pal."

Not everyone saw the humor in the tweets. Morris frowned after @RealJimIsSlim said she looks like Jennifer Lawrence's "less attractive little sister," and Lambert didn't crack a smile after reading @deleco31's tweet: "In case of national emergency, all air traffic will be redirected to Miranda Lambert's forehead."

Pope flipped the bird at the person who tweeted her. And Kramer? She offered a fake a apology for "trying too hard with her Texas accent," while Owen sincerely apologized to the "miserable as f--k" person who thought his show was "super lame."
