51st annual CMA Awards

51st annual CMA Awards”

Country superstars Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood are returning as hosts for the tenth year in a row.

A somber reflection on the tragedies of 2017: The 51st CMA Awards began on a serious note, with Underwood and Paisley reflecting on the storms and violent tragedies that have impacted so many across the United States this past year. "So tonight, we're gonna do what families do - come together, pray together, cry together and sing together, too".

"Right now, he's probably in his PJs, reaching for his cellphone.he's probably asking Siri, 'How in the hell do you spell Pocahontas?'" Paisley sang along with his guitar.

Underwood referenced mass shootings in Las Vegas and Texas, fatal auto attacks in NY and Virginia, plus deadly storms that hit Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico.

Paisley added: "The way we see it, the best way to honor our fans is to play our music-loud and proud". "Our music lifts people up".

In viewers and young adults, ABC built to Wednesday season highs with its largest overall audience on the night in three years and its top Adult 18-49 rating with entertainment programming in two years - since 11/5/14 and 11/4/15, respectively.

The theme of unity continued as Little Big Town's Kimberly Schlapman quoted Maya Angelou. The country community really is like a family, after all. "I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel", she said.
