It's Country's biggest night and its stars sure dressed for the occasion. On Wednesday, November 9th, massive Country music stars like Luke Combs and Miranda Lambert descended upon the red carpet in their finest gowns and suits for the 56th annual CMA Awards.
This year's highly-anticipated awards ceremony is hosted by Luke Bryan and retired NFL star, Peyton Manning. In a previous statement, Bryan got fans pumped for the big night. "Being a part of such a historical night that honors my peers and Country Music is such a privilege. When I was asked if Peyton Manning was someone I would consider cohosting with I didn’t hesitate...I know he’s been to the CMA Awards before, but he’s never been with me. Hey Peyton, I hope you’re ready for the night of your life!”
The 2022 CMAs will see Entertainer of the Year nominees Carrie Underwood and Lambert join forces with Reba McEntire for an opening number that will honor the life of late Country Music Hall of Famer Loretta Lynn. Another late Hall of Famer Jerry Lee Lewis will also be honored with a performance by Elle King and the Black Keys.
As artists are recognized for their contributions to Country music, fans will be treated to performances by the likes of Kelsea Ballerini, Dierks Bentley, Chris Stapleton, Carly Pearce, and many more.
