The 54th annual CMA Awards telecast is being broadcast live on ABC. Maren Morris was the most awarded artist with three, for female vocalist of the year, single of the year and song of the year. Luke Combs won male vocalist of the year and album of the year. Eric Church won entertainer of the year.

The show began with a medley of Charlie Daniels hits featuring Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Ashley McBryde and Brothers Osborne, and continued with a monologue by hosts Reba McEntire and Darius Rucker.

“For your safety, I’ve had Morgan Wallen quarantined in my dressing room for two weeks now,” quipped Rucker, shortly before Wallen took the stage to perform “More Than My Hometown.”

Maren Morris’ “The Bones” won the first two awards of the night, for single and song of the year.

Justin Bieber and Dan + Shay were very socially distanced from Nashville as well as one another, having pre-filmed their performance of “10,000 Hours” from the stage of an empty Hollywood Bowl.
