The eyes of the country music world turn to Nashville, Tennessee

Luke Bryan and Peyton Manning are returning as your gracious hosts at a glitzy ceremony held at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee — the very heartland of country music in the U.S.

Having picked up two gongs last year, Lainey Wilson is the most nominated artist at this year's CMA Awards. Her album Bell Bottom Country was among the most critically acclaimed country albums of 2023 (it already picked up Album of the Year at the ACM Awards). The daughter of Beach Boy Brian Wilson, Lainey has nine nominations in total, including best Female Vocalist and two each in Single of the Year and Musical Event of the Year.

As well as the awards business, the list of performers set for Nashville is a veritable who's who of country stars. Host Luke Bryan will take the the stage himself, as well as Lainey Wilson, Jelly Roll (who has five nominations), Hardy, Luke Combs and many more — there's a full list of performers, presenters and nominees at the bottom of this article. Plus, Kenny Chesney, Mac McAnally, Alan Jackson and the Zac Brown Band will perform a tribute to the recently deceased country legend Jimmy Buffet.

What are the CMA Awards?

The full name of the CMA Awards is the Country Music Association Awards. This year marks its 57th iteration, with the very first ceremony dating all the way back to 1967 — making it the longest running annual music awards program on network television.

The CMA Awards celebrate outstanding achievement in country music, with categories for best Album, Song, Vocalists, Group, Duo, Song, New Artist, Musician, Video and Event.

Brooks & Dunn and Vince Gill are the most decorated artists in CMA Award history, with 18 wins apiece. While George Strait's 83 overall nominations is the most for any artist.

2023 CMA Awards hosts

Duo Luke Bryan and Peyton Manning will host the CMA Awards for the second year running.

Luke Bryan is a multi CMA and CMT Award winning artist with a massively successful country music career dating back over a decade. The 47-year-old has sold more than 75 million records, including the 2013 hit Crash My Party. As well as hosting the CMAs, he has also been a judge on The Voice and American Idol.

Peyton Manning is better known for football than music. He had a hugely successful 18-year NFL career, playing quarterback for Indianapolis Colts and Denver Broncos. He's no stranger to awards, however, bagging two Super Bowl rings and five NFL MVP awards during his football career.

The show will be packed with performances from country's biggest stars.

Is 2023 the year that Chris Stapleton or Carrie Underwood get their flowers at the CMA Awards? Despite now being seven- and six-time nominees respectively, neither of the country superstars has ever picked up the ultra-prestigious Entertainer of the Year trophy, and the meteoric success of Luke Combs' cover of Tracy Chapman's timeless '88 hit "Fast Car" suggests they're going to have to keep waiting.

There are numerous country music awards events, but the Country Music Association Awards is the original, and the 57th edition is being staged at the legendary Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee.

Luke Bryan and Peyton Manning are on hosting duties for the second year running, but Combs would go one better if he's crowned the Entertainer of the Year again. He's already won the top prize twice in a row, and his main competition stands to be Morgan Wallen, who's back on the scene after being filmed drunkenly using a racial slur two years ago.

There are 11 major awards categories besides, but of course, the real highlights of the two-hour ceremony will be the performances, particularly the collaborations, and this year we can look forward to mashups between Jelly Roll and K. Michelle, Tanya Tucker and Little Big Town, Old Dominion and Megan Moroney, and Carly Pearce and Stapleton.
