NASHVILLE (CelebrityAccess) – The 56th Annual Country Music Association Awards (CMA) took place last night at the famed Bridgestone Arena and was hosted by Luke Bryan and NFL star Peyton Manning. Leading the nominations for the night was Lainey Wilson with six nods for Album of the Year, Female Vocalist of the Year, New Artist of the Year, Music Video of the Year, Musical Event of the Year, and Song of the Year for the 2021 album, Sayin’ What I’m Thinkin’. With those six nods, she joins Glen Campbell, Kacey Musgraves, and Brad Paisley as the only musicians to ever receive six nominations as first-time nominees for the CMAs.

The show opened with a tribute to the Coal Miner’s Daughter, Loretta Lynn, by Country music royalty Miranda Lambert, Reba McEntire, and Carrie Underwood. The trio performed a medley of Lynn’s songs that included “You Ain’t Woman Enough,” “Don’t Come Home A-Drinkin’ (With Lovin’ On Your Mind),” and “You’re Looking At Country,” before ending with “Coal Miner’s Daughter.”

Also honoring the late Ms. Lynn, Carly Pearce took to the stage with Musician of the Year winner Jenee Fleenor, Sonya Isaacs, and Ricky Skaggs to perform an original song of Pearce’s called “Dear Miss Loretta.”

The CMAs took a page out of the Grammy book with one-of-a-kind performance collaborations. Elle King joined the Black Keys for “Great Balls of Fire” in tribute to the late Jerry Lee Lewis. You could have heard a pin drop during Chris Stapleton and Patty Loveless performance of “You’ll Never Leave Harlan Alive,” and Thomas Rhett and Katy Perry performed their collab, “Where We Started.” Wilson and HARDY took the stage for a hauntingly powerful version of their song, “Wait in the Truck.”

Country music legend Alan Jackson was met with thunderous applause after surprising the audience with his hit, “Don’t Rock the Jukebox.” As the 2022 CMA Willie Nelson Lifetime Achievement Award recipient watched, Jon Pardi, Dierks Bentley, Wilson, and Underwood performed some of his well-known hits, including “Chattahoochee,” “Drive (For Daddy Gene), “Remember When,” and “Chasin’ That Neon Rainbow.”
