There were so many great moments at last night’s CMA Awards show! Honestly, between the live performances and the surprises, it was undoubtedly one of the best awards show ever.
Here are a few of my favorite things… moments, that is.
1. Carly Pearce winning the CMA Award for Female Vocalist of the Year
The shock in her face, the tears, the unexpected, and then there was Ashley McBryde swooping in for the assist

2. Luke Combs Taking Home the award for Entertainer of the Year
“Alan Jackson said my name, twice, just now.” How can you top that, and his complete humbleness, shock, and just being such a real guy.
3. Brothers Osborne in an upset to bring home the Duo of the Year award
4. Deana Carter and Lainey Wilson going acapella on “Strawberry Wine,” inciting everyone to join in
5. Jennifer Hudson and Chris Stapleton channeling Aretha and giving us all chills
Let’s just leave it there…
