The 2020 Country Music Association Awards are upon us. With the coronavirus pandemic still a concern, the CMA Awards will be presented from Music City Center in Nashville, Tennessee without an audience. But while there may be empty seats in the venue, an impressive roster of country stars will be in attendance.

Reba McEntire is returning to the CMA Awards stage to reprise her hosting duties, accompanied by Hootie and the Blowfish singer Darius Rucker. The three-hour event will open with a performance by Ashley McBryde, Brothers Osborne, Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, and Jenee Fleenor. In addition, viewers will be treated to performances by Miranda Lambert, Keith Urban, Kelsea Ballerini, Jimmie Allen, and others.

Keith, Miranda, and Carrie Underwood are among the country artists nominated for Entertainer of the Year. Miranda and Carrie are also up for Female Vocalist of the Year alongside Kacey Musgraves. All in all, there are 12 different categories, which will be presented by some of the biggest names in country music, including Lauren Akins, Bobby Bones, Patrick Schwarzenegger, and Taylor Hill.
