It's finally CMT Awards day!

The 2018 CMT Awards air tonight from Nashville and you know what that means...good music and even better country couples. In honor of the big show, we're giving you a little taste of what you can expect to see. In addition to enjoying Little Big Town host the show (and debut a new song) there will be plenty of lovey-dovey couples hitting the red carpet to watch out for.

Carrie Underwood is set to perform (and up for four awards) so we're hoping to see her walk the carpet with her Nashville Predators husband Mike Fisher. Country royalty Faith Hill and Tim McGraw never seem to miss a major event so we can only imagine that they'll be at this year's show to prove once again how perfect they are together. Plus, could this show be Chris Stapleton and his wife Morgane Stapleton's first event since welcoming their twins in April of this year? We sure hope so!

Country Music's Cutest Families

Other couples to watch out for are the newlyweds Maren Morris and Ryan Hurd as well as lovebirds like Kacey Musgraves and Ruston Kelly.

No matter which country couple you love most they'll all be in Nashville rocking out (either on stage or in the audience), mingling with one another and taking home some of the night's top honors. Before the show, make sure to cast your vote for the hottest couple in country music below. Then, tune in for the show AKA the free concert at 5 p.m. on CMT.

Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher

The "Cry Pretty" singer and her hockey player husband have been married since 2010 and share two sons, Isaiah and Jacob.

Tim McGraw and Faith Hill

With more than 24 years of marriage under their belts, these two still look like they're newlyweds. The couple shares three daughters: Gracie, Maggie and Audrey.

Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban

The "Kiss A Girl" singer and his Oscar-winning wife have been married since 2006 and share two daughters, Faith Margaret and Sunday Rose.

Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani

Even though Stefani is a pop/rock singer, once she began dating country star Shelton in 2015, she quickly acclimated to the downhome lifestyle. Plus, at every country event, she remains Shelton's biggest fan. The couple announced their engagement in October 2020.

Kane Brown and Katelyn Jae

The "Heaven" singer married his longtime girlfriend in October 2018. The new parents, who welcomed daughter Kingsley Rose Brown a year after tying the knot, are a match made in, well, heaven. (We had to!)

Maren Morris and Ryan Hurd

Husband and wife since March 2018, they've been one of the music industry's favorite couples for years, probably due to their killer style and the sweet songs they've written for one another. With son Hayes Andrew Hurd's birth in March 2020, they've got even more to sing about.

Luke Bryan and Caroline Boyer

Sweethearts since college, the American Idol judge and his wife have been through some high-highs and low-lows since tying the knot in 2006. But through it all, they've stuck together and become ultimate couple goals. They have two sons, Thomas Boyer Bryan and Tatum Christopher Bryan.

Brad Paisley and Kimberly Williams Paisley

The "Celebrity" singer fell in love with the Father of the Bride actress back in 2001, and they walked down the aisle two years later. They share two sons, William Huckleberry and Jasper Warren.

Dierks Bentley and Cassidy Black

The country star and his wife wed in 2005 and are parents to two daughters, Evalyn Day and Jordan Catherine, and a son, Knox.

Sam Hunt and Hannah Lee Fowler

Hunt has been making women swoon from the moment he came onto the country music scene, but sadly he's taken. The "Break Up in a Small Town" singer married the love of his life in 2017.

Chris and Morgane Stapleton

The "Traveller" singer and his favorite songwriting partner wed in 2007. They have five children together.

Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood

Married since 2005, Brooks and Yearwood continue to reign supreme as country music royalty. Yearwood is stepmother to her third husband's three daughters from his previous marriage.

Kelsea Ballerini and Morgan Evans

The "I Hate Love Songs" singer and her Australian singer-songwriter husband quickly became one of country's hottest couples. They tied the knot in 2017 and have been making everyone envious of their love on every red carpet since.

Karen Fairchild and Jimi Westbrook

The Little Big Town members have been married since 2006, and are parents to son Elijah.

Charles Kelley and Cassie McConnell

Jason Aldean and Brittany Kerr

These two are always "Burnin' It Down" whenever they hit the red carpet. The two have been married since 2015 and share a son, Memphis and a daughter, Navy Rome.

Brian Kelley and Brittney Marie Cole, Tyler Hubbard and Hayley Stommel

Date nights are double the fun for these two Florida Georgia Line musicians when their wives are by their sides.

Vince Gill and Amy Grant

The country star wed the Christian music artist in March 2000, meaning they've entered their third decade together. They share a daughter, Corrina.

Miranda Lambert and Brendan McLoughlin
