It’s time for the Country Music Association Awards. Tonight, country’s biggest stars including Taylor Swift, Kenny Chesney, Brad Paisley, and not Toby Keith will take the stage at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville.

The 46th annual CMA Awards will be hosted for the fifth consecutive time by Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley. The show will include performances from more than 20 artists as Swift, Chesney, Paisley, Jason Aldean, and Blake Shelton fight for the Entertainer of the Year Award.

The CMA Awards will be broadcast live on ABC tonight at 7 pm CST. You can watch a live stream of the red carpet arrivals below.

The CMA Awards will feature several of country music’s hottest stars, but this year the show will also be used to benefit the victims of Hurricane Sandy. Underwood and Paisley are expected to ask for donations to the Red Cross during tonight’s broadcast.

Underwood said:

“Country fans are so amazing and so giving. To make sure everybody can pitch in, that’s going to be really important.”
