Veterans, up and comers, and country music creators from all walks of life attended the grand event.  Dierks Bentley, Dan + Shay and Kelsea Ballerini were all in attendance. Hosts Reba McEntire, Dolly Parton and Carrie Underwood made a video together right before they made their appearances on the red carpet, and subsequently on the big stage.

 

The three country megastars opened up the ceremony with a rendition of “Those Memories of You,”  a song Parton originally produced in 1987.
