2015 CMA Awards



The 49th annual Country Music Awards (CMAs) ceremony took place in Nashville on Wednesday night, with Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley co-hosting the  Awards for the eighth year.

Their opening monologue even gave a major nod to the current Star Wars excitement.

The 2015 CMAs honor the best in country music and winners are chosen by the more than 7,000 members of the Country Music Association.

Luke Bryan took the night’s biggest award, Entertainer Of The Year, for the second year in a row.
