There was never a dull moment during Wednesday night's (Nov. 2) CMA Awards. The opening tribute was arguably the most iconic moment of the night, starring numerous legends and an emotional ending by Randy Travis. And that was only the beginning.

The 50th anniversary of the CMA Awards saw performances by Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood, Brooks & Dunn with Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Kelsea BalleriniMaren Morris with the Preservation Hall Jazz Band and so many more. Taylor Swift received a warm welcome back to the CMA Awards stage to hand out Entertainer of the Year, and Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley wowed with wardrobe changes and musical jokes. It will go down as one of the best CMA Awards ever.
