The CMAs will be broadcast live from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville beginning at 8 pm ET. There will, no doubt, be a tribute to victims of the Route 91 Harvest Festival mass shooting during the show.

Lambert is this year’s top nominee with five, including Single and Song of the Year. Little Big Town and Keith Urban have four each.

Taylor Swift is nominated as songwriter for Little Big Town’s hit “Better Man.”
