It’s hard to believe “Country Music’s Biggest Night” has already come and gone! “The 46th Annual CMA Awards” was full of surprises, laughs, and great performances.

Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood’s fifth year of hosting went off without a hitch. The dynamic duo opened the show with “Moves Like Haggard,” a play on the Maroon 5/Christina Aguilera hit from 2011. They had everyone laughing with jokes about “Motorboatin’,” Taylor Swift’s love life, Jennifer Nettles’ impending labor, and much more.

The evening’s performances ranged from all-star collaborations to moving ballads to country-rock anthems.
