Country music's biggest night has arrived.

The 2014 CMA Awards honored a number of performers tonight for their work in the past year, along with providing the audience with laughs from returning co-hosts Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley and multiple memorable performances by famous country crooners.

In fact, the show opened with A-lister Kenny Chesney performing his hit "American Kids" which was immediately followed with a fierce duet by Miranda Lambert and Meghan Trainor who took on the young singer's chart-topping single "All About That Bass."

Once the crowd got a good groove going, they were treated to the comedic performance that was Underwood and Paisley's monolgue. These two tackled a list of buzzworthy topics, including ebola, Renée Zellweger's look, Taylor Swift's transition to pop and even Carrie's pregnancy—among other things.

Oh, and Paisley spilled the beans that Carrie is expecting a baby boy. That was a great moment.

There was a plethora of amazing musical performances by some notable names, including Lady Antebellum, Florida Georgia Line, Keith Urban, Kacey Musgraves with Loretta Lynn, Jason Aldean, Little Big Town who were also joined Ariana Grande, Tim McGraw, Dierks Bentley, Brad Paisley, Carrie Underwood, Luke Bryan and more.

And then, of course, there were the awards. Miranda walked away a huge winner tonight, snagging honors for Album of the Year, Single of the Year and Female Vocalist of the Year. Meanwhile, her hubby Blake Shelton took Male Vocalist of the Year for the fifth time! Vince Gill won the prestigous Irving Waugh Award of Excellence, whose only past recipient was the iconic Johnny Cash.
