There’s no escaping Justin Bieber these days – not on the radio, not at a theater near you, not at the NBA All-Star Game and not at the CMT Music Awards, where the 17-year-old recently picked up an award for Collaborative Video of the Year.
Though some country fans might have been taken aback to see Bieber sharing a screen with Rascal Flatts in the video for “That Should Be Me,” he came by his affection for the genre the good old-fashioned way: from his mother.
“It’s great,” Bieber said after the show. “It’s so many people my mother admires, ’cause she loves country music, and I do too. So it’s really great to be here with Rascal Flatts.”
