The CMT Music Awards lit up Nashville tonight with country's brightest stars coming together to celebrate music. Actress Nicole Kidman escorted her husband, Keith Urban, down the red carpet before taking their seats and chatting with Shania Twain, Justin Bieber, and the members of Sugarland. Fresh off a win at Sunday's MTV Movie Awards Justin added another statue to his trophy case, sharing the collaborative video of the year award with Rascal Flatts for "That Should Be Me." Sheryl Crow strutted onto the stage for a duet with Kid Rock and showed off her legs in a daringly short skirt before giving Kid a big embrace at the end of their performance. A few major names, and winners, were unable to make the show due to scheduling conflicts. Taylor Swift took home the win for video of the year and although she taped the show's opening skit with Shania she had to accept her statue via satellite. The Voice's Blake Shelton missed the show, but he still took home the win for best male video and best web video of the year. First time attendees American Idol winner Scotty McCreery and runner-up Lauren Alaina were welcomed with a roaring applause from the crowd before introducing Sugarland to the stage.
