Country Music Awards hosts Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley put a country music spin on a parody of George Strait's iconic "Amarillo by Morning" that mocked Obamacare.

During their opening for the award show Wednesday night on ABC, Paisley complained of a back problem. Underwood recommended Paisley sign up for Obamacare, and the two sat down with a laptop to sign up, experiencing problems that have been associated with the rollout of the Affordable Care Act, colloquially known as Obamacare.

The duo then performed "Obamacare by Morning" with lyrics that poked fun at the malfunctioning Obamacare website.
