Taylor Swift’s love life is more than great inspiration for her hit songs – it’s now a punchline.

Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley poked fun at the singer’s recent split from Conor Kennedy during the opening monologue of Thursday’s Country Music Association Awards.

“Brad and I were backstage talking about what a strange year this has been,” Underwood said at the start of their funny (and musically-accentuated) routine.

“Just look at sports, I can’t keep track of all these trades,” continued Paisley, as his co-host noted that Tim Tebow is now playing for the New York Jets.
