The Country Music Association celebrated some of the industry's biggest stars on country's biggest night.

Luke Bryan is hosted the 55th Annual CMA Awards in Nashville on Wednesday night (November 10). The show was stacked with a star-studded lineup, including performances by Blake Shelton, Jason Aldean, Carrie Underwood, Luke Combs, Gabby Barrett, Miranda Lambert and many more. Tons of other celebs presented awards, including Florida Georgia Line, Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Trisha Yearwood, to name a few.

Two winners were revealed earlier in the day, live on ABC’s Good Morning America. First-time CMA Awards winner Kelsea Ballerini and nine-time CMA Awards winner Kenny Chesney won in two categories for their duet, “half of my hometown,” according to a CMA press release. The song won in the Musical Event of the Year and Music Video of the Year categories. Ballerini took to Instagram with an emotional video to share her excitement over the awards, gushing: “I'm so happy! I love this song. I'm so proud of this song. And I love everyone that's a part of it. And I can't wait to go to the show tonight and celebrate. It's my first one! Thank You guys.”
