Are you getting excited for one of country music's biggest nights of the year?!

The 49th Annual CMA Awards is taking place tonight at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville and will air at 8/7c on ABC. As usual the festivities will be packed with performances by some of country's biggest names and feature the usual random yet welcome pop-music cross pollination. (Hey, when Justin Timberlake's coming to your show, you don't keep it a secret.)

Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood are hosting for the eighth straight year, so you know they've got this down, and we can't wait to find out who they'll be poking fun at this time.
