“Country Music’s Biggest Night” is underway in Nashville and the stars, who have been freshly COVID-tested, are out in full-force on the red carpet.
The artists strutted their stuff on the carpet prior to the big show and although the carpet looked a bit different this year, it provided everyone with a bit of normalcy in the midst of what has been a year full of unprecedented events.
The 54th Annual CMA Awards is set to feature performances from Chris Stapleton, Darius Rucker, Rascal Flatts, Morgan Wallen, Miranda Lambert, Maren Morris, Luke Combs, Eric Church, Jon Pardi, Keith Urban, Jimmie Allen, Ingrid Andress, Little Big Town, Rascal Flatts, Old Dominion and Kelsea Ballerini.
Additionally, the show includes star-studded collaborations by Dan + Shay with Justin Bieber, Reba McEntire featuring Darius Rucker, Gabby Barrett and Charlie Puth, Thomas Rhett with Reba McEntire and Chris Tomlin as well as Carly Pearce with Charles Kelley. The show opener featured an all-star performance from Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Brothers Osborne, Jenee Fleenor and Ashley McBryde paying tribute to the late Charlie Daniels.
Reba McEntire and Darius Rucker are set to host “Country Music’s Biggest Night” which will air on Wednesday, November 11 (live 8:00-11:00 PM ET) on ABC.
