Tonight was the 2014 CMA Awards and Carrie Underwood did an amazing job as always with Brad Paisley as they co-hosted the event. They brought humor and charm to the stage and also announced that Carrie and her husband Mike Fisher are having a baby boy. Kenny Chesney opened the show with his song "American Kids," followed by a performance by Meghan Trainor and Miranda Lambert. As always, Lambert picked up award after award. Steven Tyler made a little cameo in the opening monologue with Carrie and Brad as he got them to sing some Aerosmith. Some of the highlights of the night were Ariana Grande singing "Bang Bang" with Little Big Town as they were backed by a marching band, Loretta Lynn surprising the audience for a duet with Kacey Musgraves, and Luke Bryan getting made fun of over and over by Brad Paisley.
