Sony Music Nashville celebrated the collection of some CMA hardware Wednesday evening (Nov. 14). Luke Combs was honored as CMA New Artist of the Year, while Old Dominion took home their first CMA Vocal Group of the Year honor.

Combs took part in the show’s opening number, performing with UMG’s Luke Bryan on the latter’s “What Makes You Country,” before performing  his own multi-week No. 1 smash “She Got The Best of Me.” Old Dominion performed their two-week No. 1 hit “Hotel Key.”

Miranda Lambert performed alongside BBR Music Group’s Jason Aldean for their Musical Event and Single of the Year-nominated “Drowns The Whiskey.” She later joined with Ashley Monroe and Angaleena Presley for a rendition of “Got My Name Changed Back,” from their No. 1 country album Interstate Gospel.

Maren Morris joined forces with Chris Stapleton, Mavis Staples, and Marty Stuart for a powerhouse collaboration, performing “Friendship” and “I’ll Take You There.”

Kane Brown presented the Award for Vocal Group of the Year, and LANCO hosted the pre-telecast ceremony which recognized the CMA Broadcast Award winners and Musical Event, Musician, and Music Video of the Year recipients.
