The CMA Awards are tonight & Reba’s on Live With Kelly & Ryan today

The CMA Awards are tonight at 7 CT on ABC hosted by Reba and Darius Rucker. To kick it off, Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Ashley McBryde and Brothers Osborn pay tribute to Charlie Daniels. Other performers include Dan + Shay with Justin Bieber, Miranda, Maren Morris, Luke Combs, Old Dominion, Thomas Rhett and Keith Urban. Little Big Town will honor Kenny Rogers, Jon Pardi pays tribute to Joe Diffie and Charles Kelley will sit in for Lee Brice to duet with Carly Pearce.

There’s no red carpet tonight and everyone was tested for Covid beforehand. Masks will be worn and physical distancing practiced. The audience is artists and industry people at tables eight-feet-apart. Deep cleaning protocols happen between performances so 40% of the 20 singers are pre-recorded. Winners are asked to only touch elbows with the person handing them their trophy and not hug or shake their hand.

Finally - Reba’s on Live With Kelly & Ryan. Chris Janson has a free show on the United States Air Force Band's Facebook at 6 CT and Maren Morris is on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
