Country Music Association Awards hosts Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood took a moment during the show Wednesday to skewer the troubles with the Healthcare.gov website, with the help of a classic George Strait song.

"Obamacare by morning" poked fun at how long it has taken many people to sign up for health care coverage online. It was a takeoff of Strait's hit "Amarillo by morning."

“Obamacare by morning

Why’s this taking so long?

I’m going to wind up with hemorrhoids

If I sit here too long.

We’ll have cataracts and dementia

Oh this getting on my last nerve

Obamacare by morning

Over six people served.”


The song received rousing applause from the audience.
