Oh it’s the most wonderful time of the year…CMA Awards time! Tomorrow night is “country music’s biggest night” on ABC and it could not be more exciting. Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood are hosting this year and if their song “Remind Me” is any indication of how the show is going to be, well, it’s going to be amazing. The fact that they have hosted last year, and the year before that, and 3 more times before that (in case you can’t add this will be their sixth consecutive year hosting) also pretty much proves that they will be perfect. Add them, plus the incredible performers, plus the best presenters ever and it is sure to be a great show. Just in case you are living under a rock (or don’t spend quite as much time following country music as I do) and haven’t seen the unbelievable list of performers and presenters then look no further!
This year’s CMA awards performers are Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Florida Georgia Line, Vince Gill, Dave Grohl, Hunter Hayes, Alan Jackson, Alison Krauss, Lady Antebellum, Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town, Tim McGraw, Jason Mraz, Kacey Musgraves, Jennifer Nettles, Brad Paisley, Rascal Flatts, Darius Rucker, Blake Shelton, Lennon and Maisy Stella, George Strait, Taylor Swift, The Band Perry, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban, and Zac Brown Band
Some of these already amazing performers will join forces with other amazing performers and be even more amazing with some too-unbelievable-to-handle collaborations. These include Hunter Hayes & Jason Mraz, Zac Brown Band & Dave Grohl, Taylor Swift, Vince Gill & Alison Krauss, and George Strait & Alan Jackson (in a tribute to George Jones)
Even though the singing is amazing, just looking at these country superstars is enough so it’s even more exciting that some incredible stars will be presenters. You can all enjoy the view as Lee Brice, Connie Britton, Kelly Clarkson, Sheryl Crow, Brett Eldredge, Eli Young Band, Charles Esten, Lucy Hale, Kip Moore, Jake Owen, Kellie Pickler, Robin Roberts, and Willie & Korie Robertson and Jase & Missy Robertson (“Duck Dynasty”) present the awards.

The most important part of an awards show is of course the awards (but really it’s staring at all of the country stars’ beautiful faces and wishing we were them) so in case you missed my post about the nominees and my picks for each category check them out at the link above.
Words can’t describe how perfect it is that there are going to be amazing performances AND the best actors from Nashville all in the same show. Everyone prepare for the best awards show out there and watch the 47th CMA Awards live on ABC at 8/7c!
