Country music’s biggest names will hit Nashville tonight for the 43rd CMA Awards.
Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley (the leading nominee with 7 nods) will co-host, perform and vie for a few trophies.
We can expect to see the likes of Miranda Lambert, Kenny Chesney, Keith Urban, Zac Brown Brown, George Strait and many others.
Of course, country’s sweetheart, Taylor Swift, will be on hand to open the show. The 19-year-old – second only to Michael Jackson this year in terms of sales – is competing for the top spot.
While Chesney has predictably won Entertainer of the Year for five years, she could give him a run for his money. And she could give a bit of competition to Underwood, who’s won Female Vocalist of the Year three times in a row.
Who do you think will/should win?
The show airs tonight at 8 p.m. on ABC.
