The CMA Awards are tonight.

FOX's Ashley Dvorkin has this week's "FOX Country":

I'm Ashley Dvorkin in Nashville for the CMA Awards!

These awards celebrate the big 5-0 with the help of the biggest stars in the business and the most as the show boasts more performers than any other in CMA Awards history.

Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley return as hosts for a ninth time. Both are part of the night's performance line-up. So are Underwood's fellow 'Entertainer of the Year' nominees Luke Bryan, Chris Stapleton, Keith Urban...

And Garth Brooks. Brooks will be performing with his wife Trisha Yearwood. 

Top nominees going into the show are last year's breakout star singer-songwriter Chris Stapleton, consistent hit-maker Eric Church...

And newcomer Maren Morris who's also up for 'Female Vocalist of the Year', 'New Artist', and 'Album of the Year'.

That's FOX Country from Nashville on FOX News.
