My "Predictions" For The 52nd Annual CMA's

Tomorrow night, Country's BIGGEST NIGHT at the 52nd Annual CMA Awards with hosts Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood returning for their 11th consecutive year. The awards begin 7pm (CT) on ABC live from Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. Chris Stapleton, who leads the field of nominees with FIVE nominations, will be performing tomorrow night and  is rumored to be collaborating with Maren Morris and R&B/gospel icon Mavis Staples! Also slated to perform are  Pistol Annies, the acclaimed trio of Miranda Lambert, Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Presley, Eric Church. Other collaborations include pop star Bebe Rexha and Florida Georgia Line, teaming up for their record-breaking hit “Meant to Be” —Jason Aldean and again Miranda Lambert for their twice-nominated "Drowns The Whiskey" and Dierks Bentley will enlist Brothers Osborne for "Burning Man" that is up for Musical Event of the Year. Other performers include Luke Bryan, Carrie Underwood, Kenny Chesney, Luke Combs, Kelsea Ballerini, Kacey Musgraves, Midland and Brett Young.

Each year I just for the heck of it I make my predictions on who I think will win each category.. a "ritual" for the past 12 years or so and sadly I have been more wrong than right each year BUT I feel like this year I am "on fire"... I did get 7 out of 11 last year which ain't too bad and I am feeling pretty confident I KNOW who will be walking away a winner tomorrow night! Do you agree? Tell us who you pick to win in comments below! 


Last year Garth Brooks won the BIGGEST honor of the night and who could forget the whole lip syncing debacle....well he's not even nominated to defend his "title" this year so I pick Keith Urban to win that honor this year
