The CMA Awards are known as Country Music's Biggest Night for a reason. Legendary country stars showed up to sing in 2014, but country's young bucks -- the newcomers -- also got their time in the spotlight.

Whether it was George Strait joining Eric Church on stage for one heck of a comeback or pop star Meghan Trainor alongside Miranda Lambert to give us 'All About That Bass,' the 2014 CMA Awards performances didn't disappoint!

The biggest surprise of the night? Loretta Lynn coming onstage to sing with Kacey Musgraves, with both women sporting some beautifully big hair. A banner year for the CMAs, indeed! Relive some of the best performances of the night via our photo gallery capturing the action.
