Not by a TV tonight? Not to worry — you can watch all the country action go down right here! Watch both the red carpet and the full broadcast of the 48th annual Country Music Association Awards right here on our live stream.
It’s the biggest night in country! The CMAs start on ABC at 8pm on Nov. 5 — but you can’t miss the red carpet starting at 7 ET. From hosts Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley, to early winners Miranda Lambert and Dierks Bentley, it’s the one night where the ladies dress up and the men . . . well, they usually stay in their cowboy boots. Watch it here.

There are many reasons you’ll want to tune in tonight. First of all, Meghan Trainor is pairing up with 9-time-nominee Miranda Lambert (who plans on making five outfit changes tonight), for a country-ish version of “All About That Bass.” That’s obviously going to be entertaining.
They’re not the only two strangely paired up. Little Big Town is joined by pop princess, Ariana Grande! So you obviously want to see if Ariana will be wearing her cat ears. Blake Shelton will be singing with Ashley Monroe, a super talented young country singer who is actually BFF with both Blake and his wife (Miranda was the maid of honor at her wedding!).
However, the moments we’re sure everyone will be talking about isn’t the performance, but Brad and a pregnant Carrie taking the stage to host the show for their seventh time. We know they’ll be Ebola jokes, to say one thing!
Are you watching tonight? Who are you routing for? Who will win big?
