The 2020 CMA Awards are airing tonight — but we already know a few early winners!

On Tuesday, the 54th iteration of the ever-popular country music awards show will be broadcasting live from the Music City Center in Nashville, Tennessee and will be hosted by past CMA Award winners Reba McEntire and Darius Rucker.

Featuring show-stopping performances from Chris Stapleton, Ashley McBryde, Keith Urban and Dan + Shay with Justin Bieber, among many others, the show will also hand out various awards throughout the big night.

Taking place amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the CMA Awards were also held with an audience — albeit just the nominees, performers and their guests — unlike many other televised awards show events throughout the year.
