She says she was lucky she didn't hurt herself or anyone else, but she admits she was ``kind of a jerk'' to her boyfriends at the time. JoJo has a new album out called ``Mad…

Randy Travis sang a single word, ``Amen.'' Other performers included Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood, Dierks Bentley and Elle King, Maren Morris, Kelsea Ballerini, Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood, the Oak Ridge Boys, Keith Urban, George Strait -- and then Beyonce showed up. Beyonce? She's from Texas, after all, and she performed her country-tinged song ``Daddy Lessons'' with the Dixie Chicks. --- CMA AWARDS - WINNERS Maren Morris says she watched the Country Music Association Awards last year from a bar across the street. This year she won the C-M-A best new artist award. Eric Church won album of…
