Ready for the biggest night in country music? The Country Music Association Awards are celebrating 50 years of music by bringing every big country star (and even Beyonce) to one stage and you can watch the show right here.
The 50th annual CMAs will start at 8 p.m. ET live from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville! With the red carpet kicking off at 6PM ET, you can watch that on Taste of Country‘s YouTube page. Then at 8:00, head over to ABC.com to watch the show, hosted by the one and only Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley, and we all know they’ll make us LOL as they have in previous years.
We also are getting wind of reports that Beyonce, whether she’s country or not, will also be performing at the top of the show with Dixie Chicks. The band actually covered Beyonce’s hit, “Daddy Issues” during a concert in March 2016, so we’re not that surprised to hear that they could possibly perform together. Plus, they’re both huge Hillary Clinton supporters, and we have a feeling that the show will include may political references this year.
Here’s what else we know about the show. The performers include Dierks Bentley, 40, Reba McEntire, 61, Eric Church, 39, Martina McBride, 50, Keith Urban, 49, Vince Gill, 59, Alan Jackson, 58, Kelsea Ballerini, 23, Garth Brooks, 54, Trisha Yearwood, 52, Luke Bryan, 40, Florida Georgia Line, Jason Aldean, 39, Miranda Lambert, 32, and Tim McGraw, 49.
Kenny Chesney, 48, will be receiving the Pinnacle Award, an award only Only Garth and Taylor Swift, have received the award in the past. Dolly Parton, 70, will be also receive the Willie Nelson Lifetime Achievement Award. Simone Biles, 19, Gabby Douglas, 20, Laurie Hernandez, 16, Madison Kocian, 19, Aly Raisman, 22, Matthew McConaughey, 46, Jennifer Garner, 44, Lily Tomlin, 77, Sharon Stone, 58, Josh Dallas, 34, are all set to present.
