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!

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.
