Country’s biggest night will be taking place at Nov. 5 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC. The 48th CMA awards will be hosted by Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood for the sixth year in a row.
ABC is allowing viewers to watch the ceremony and live carpet live on their website. Go here to catch all of your favorite country stars walking the carpet as they get ready for tonight’s show. Catch the CMA red carpet stream below.
The nominees include all the favorite country artists from Florida Georgia Line to Miranda Lambert — and country turned pop star Taylor Swift. Performers for tonight’s ceremony include Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, The Band Perry, Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton, and Keith Urban. Pop stars Ariana Grande and Meghan Trainor are also scheduled to make appearances at the awards show and perform countrified versions of their pop hits.
If your favorite country performers aren’t taking the stage to play songs, they are probably presenting an award. “Nashville” star Connie Britton and “Pretty Little Liars'” Lucy Hale will be presenting as well as Darius Rucker, Garth Brooks, Martina McBride, Steven Tyler and more.
Make sure to tune in for all of the fun performances. Fans will also be excited to see how many costume changes Carrie will fit into the show even though she’s pregnant — which Brad has promised in interviews will be the punchline of many of his jokes. The two are CMA hosting professionals now so it’ll be exciting to see how they top themselves after so many years of leading the show.
