The 49th annual Country Music Association Awards (CMA) air Wednesday night. With Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood emceeing and performances from Justin Timberlake and Chris Stapleton, Kelsea Ballerini and Florida Georgia Line lined up, this year's show is sure to be one to remember.
ABC announced in August that Paisley, 43, and Underwood, 32, would be hosting the 2015 show. This is their eighth year holding down the stage during the popular awards ceremony. The announcement was made during ABC's "CMA Music Festival: Country's Night to Rock" special. The network shared a clip of the host's best moments from shows past, reminding viewers why they've been at it for eight straight years.
While the hosts play a major role in raking in viewers, country music fans will also be tuning in to watch their favorite stars duke it out for the ceremony's highly coveted awards. This year 12 awards, including Musician of the Year, Music Video of the Year, and Entertainer of the Year, will be given out. Artists like Garth Brooks, Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Sam Hunt and Miranda Lambert will be in the audience waiting to see if their names are called to the stage to accept a CMA.
The CMA's will broadcast live from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee. Viewers at home can tune in to ABC to watch the show. Those of you tuning in from your computer or phone can catch the CMAs via a live stream. The show will be streaming on several sites.
