It's fun to predict who will win the major categories at the 2017 CMA Awards. It's more fun to predict what everyone will be talking about the day after.

Garth Brooks gets emotional when good things happen, so we're expecting him to offer free college tuition to all unborn country music babies after he wins Entertainer of the Year on Nov. 8. Hey, it's not without precedent!

Carrie Underwood could use the CMAs stage to make some baby news of her own. Three years after revealing the sex of her unborn baby during the 2014 show, she could announce that she's expecting her second. No, we don't have any evidence to substantiate this, but she has been kind of quiet lately ...

Vince Gill crying as he tributes Glen Campbell seems certain. Sam Hunt may finally give fans the news the they've been waiting for. After winning the Single of the Year trophy for "Body Like a Back Road," we predict the 2018 Taste of Country Music Festival headliner will announce that new music is on the way. Like, really on the way this time, not just in theory. Maybe he'll even perform something new? Nah, that's crazy.

Finally, good friends Taylor Swift and Kelsea Ballerini both have new music they could promote at the 2017 CMAs. Both are nominated, so both could be there. A superstar collaboration is a dream, right? Maybe a mashup. Maybe a medley of their hits? Maybe they invite every female newcomer on stage for the ultimate girl-power moment? Pretty please?!

The 2017 CMA Awards air at 8PM ET on ABC. When these things happen — or, well, whatever happens — you'll read about it first on Taste of Country.

Remember: The best way to watch the CMAs is on TV, with ToC on your phone!
