6 Things to Look Forward to During the CMA Awards


The 48th Annual CMA Awards are right around the corner and there’s a lot to look forward to. Like, Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood are hosting for the seventh straight year…and performances from Keith Urban, Luke Bryan, Dierks Bentley and every other one of our favorites!

But, here’s what we should all be really excited about:

1. During commercials for the CMA Awards, we’ve met mini Brad and mini Carrie. They showed us our stars way back when. I’m really hopeful that this is a theme throughout the night because I love these photos! (What’s better than Hillary Scott in that turtleneck with the no-teeth smile?) 

2. Rayna James will be there! I know her name is actually Connie Britton, but in my heart she’s a big-time artist just trying to start a record label and raise her family.

3. Meghan Trainor is going to perform with Miranda Lambert. Official word on the street is the duo will be performing Meghan’s hit, “All About That Bass.” 

4. Garth Brooks is presenting an award. After seeing his comeback tour on the opening weekend, I just love knowing that I’ll be in the same town as him again! 

5. Steven Perry is presenting an award. Endless possibilities with this one! 

6. The cowboy has not ridden that far away! That’s right…George Strait, reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year, will be performing!
