Country music fans know that the CMA Awards are more than an awards show – they're also a great concert!
With performances from the biggest names in country, like Taylor Swift, Keith Urban, Miranda Lambert, Kasey Musgraves, Little Big Town, Lady Antebellum and Tim McGraw, just to name a few, the three-hour extravaganza showcased what's currently topping the charts.

The CMAs in Nashville had viewers seeing stars, but unlike in years past, there wasn't one specific standout.
All the regulars – Taylor Swift, Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, Kelly Clarkson, Keith Urban and hosts Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley – were in town for country's biggest night, but some of the genre's heaviest hitters walked away uncharacteristically empty-handed.
Meanwhile, duo Florida Georgia Line, one of the newer acts over the last few years, walked away with two awards: single of the year for "Cruise" and vocal duo of the year.

It wouldn't be a music awards show – even a country one – without giving a nod to the year's biggest hit.
"Blurred Lines" got some love during Wednesday night's CMA Awards in Nashville, Tenn., when hosts Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley kicked off the night with a parody of Robin Thicke's party anthem. The new version "Duck Lines" was a nod to the cast of A&E's Duck Dynasty.
The reality family joined the hosts on stage for the silly song, which replaced "I know you want it," with "I know you hunt it," and used "You're a country girl," instead of "You're a good girl." The words "Quack, quack, quack" replaced "Hey, hey, hey."

Wednesday is country music's biggest night as the industry's top stars step onto the red carpet and the Nashville stage for the 47th annual CMA Awards.
Up for the show's top honor as entertainer of the year are three male stars, one country icon and one female singer with a penchant for roping her own personal dramas into the lyrics of her songs.
But who will take home the big prize? Take our poll below!
Jason Aldean has had a tough year with a divorce in the works and a recent tour bus accident that killed a man, but the Georgia native's career continues red hot with his latest record, "Night Train."

Taylor Swift has said she considers Selena Gomez to be like a sister, but Gomez says that although they're close friends, they are not that alike.
"The difference between Taylor and me is she was 16 with the confidence of a 25-year-old. Actually, I should say 80-year-old, because she's such an old soul," the singer says in the December/January issue of Teen Vogue.
"I was not that way. I was very sheltered until about 18 or 19. I still live at home, and I'm 21! She does inspire me like crazy, but I wouldn't change my path, because it allowed me to figure out all that stuff and do it on my own."

This was a dream come true for Sweeran shippers, who love the idea of Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran being a couple.
Wearing an "I Heart Ed" shirt, Swift, 23, took the stage at the Brit singer's Madison Square Garden concert in N.Y.C. on Friday to sing their hit "Everything Has Changed."
Sheeran, 22, who's winding up a two-and-a-half-year tour promoting his debut album, was the opening act on Swift's Red tour of the U.S.
