On Wednesday at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, country music’s brightest stars convened for the 52nd annual Country Music Association Awards. Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley — both CMA veterans themselves — reunited for the 11th consecutive year to host the event, and top nominees, including Chris Stapleton, Miranda Lambert, Jason Aldean, and Maren Morris, performed the year’s hit songs.

Keith Urban won the evening’s top honor, Entertainer of the Year, but Chris Stapleton swept the night, taking home prizes for Male Vocalist of the Year, Single of the Year, and Song of the Year, which he shared with his co-writer Mike Henderson.
