Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood returned as co-hosts of the 2017 CMA Awards for the landmark 10th consecutive year in a row. Heading into the evening, Miranda Lambert rightfully led the pack of nominees with five nods, including Album of the Year for her double-decker set The Weight of These Wings.

Earlier in the day, Music Video and Musical Event of the Year were handed out on "Good Morning America," featuring a performance from breakout star Kelsea BalleriniBrothers Osborne snagged the video honor for their politically-charged satire visual "It' Ain't My Fault," while Willie Nelson and Glen Campbell walked away with the year's event win for their eerily-poignant collaboration "Funny How Time Slips Away," a recut version from Campbell's final studio record, Adiós.

Other major nominees included Eric Church, Dierks Bentley, Chris Stapleton, Keith Urban, Luke Combs and Taylor Swift (who landed a Song of the Year nod for "Better Man," recorded by Little Big Town).
