The biggest night in country music is finally here! The 49th Annual CMA Awards will start LIVE from Nashville on Nov. 4, and you can watch the red carpet arrivals starting at 6PM ET right here.
Who’s ready to see all the hottest starts in country music perform, mingle and take home a ton of awards. Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley will once again take the stage together at the Brookstone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee to host and we can assume they will crack a ton of jokes — including a dig at Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert, who will both be in the audience — their first time we’ll see them since the split. Anyway, watch it all go down right here!
During the red carpet, Hunter Hayes and Jana Kramer will both be performing their newest hits, while a ton of huge stars walk the carpet. The show doesn’t begin on ABC until 8PM ET, but luckily CMA is live streaming online. You can watch the red carpet and show online here!
However, to keep the show from running way late, Good Morning America announced a few winners early, including Eric Church and Keith Urban, who won Best Musical Event for their performance of “Raise ‘Em Up,” Maddie & Tae who took home Music Video of the Year for “Girl in a Country Song.”
We’re expecting a big night from Little Big Town, who are nominated for five awards (but lost two to the above). We have a feeling they could easily win Vocal Group of the Year; Album of the Year for Pain Killer; or Single of the Year for “Girl Crush.” What are you most excited about at the CMA Awards this year? Let us know!
