GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) Country music’s night to rock brought us to tears and laughter. From Randy Travis’ heartwarming addition to the hall of fame to Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley’s political jokes – the CMA’s gave us a great show for their 50th anniversary.

Not to mention, Dolly Parton taking home the Lifetime Achievement award!

Superstar performers added to country music’s biggest night, including Kelsea Ballerini, Garth Brooks with Trisha Yearwood, Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town, Tim McGraw, Kacey Musgraves, Carrie Underwood, BEYONCE, and more!

…Even our girl Taylor Swift made an appearance. Mind blown.

The CMA awards broadcasted LIVE from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville on Wednesday, November 2 at 8 pm. Find out who received awards below, and get a full list of all of the 2016 nominees.
