The 51st annual Country Music Association Awards kicked off Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, and country music’s finest are already scoring trophies.

Up first was Keith Urban, who won Single of the Year for “Blue Ain’t Your Color.” Urban and Miranda Lambert are tied with five nominations, three of which are in the same categories (Single of the Year, Song of the Year, and Music Video of the Year). Little Big Town trails in a close second with four nominations. For her work as the songwriter of Little Big Town’s “Better Man,” Taylor Swift also snagged a nomination for Song of the Year, her first nod in three years.

Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley have returned for the 10th consecutive year to serve as the hosts of the award ceremony. Performers for the big night include Kelsea Ballerini, Pink, Luke Bryan, Keith Urban, both of the night’s hosts, and more.
