All the Action Inside the CMT Music Awards!

The CMT Awards rocked the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville on Wednesday night with hosts Kristen Bell and Jason Aldean kicking off the show. After making their way down the red carpet, stars took their spots in the audience and on stage. Miranda Lambert belted out "Mama's Broken Heart," while Lenny Kravitz teamed up with Jason Aldean at the mic. The evening's winners included Miranda for CMT performance of the year and female video of the year, Carrie Underwood for video of the year, and Blake Shelton for male video of the year. Carrie snapped a selfie in the crowd with her husband when she wasn't busy mingling with country pals like Kimberly Perry and Miranda. Nicole Kidman and performer Keith Urban shared seats with Sheryl Crow and Taylor Swift, who brought her brother, Austin, along for the fun and was one of the evening's performers.
