Kicking off the show with some serious country!
Kenny Chesney rocked the CMA Awards stage by performing his hit song American Kids.
And we're happy he did because he's the perfect taste of country to get things going.
Ch-ch-check out his performance (above)!
Kenny Chesney is unstoppable!
Industry forecasters have predicted that Kenny's latest album, The Big Revival, will earn a no.1 spot on the Billboard 200 chart which means that the country singer will have an impressive record of eight no.1 albums!!
The new record, released on September 23rd, is Chesney's 15th studio album (talk about an AH-Mazing work ethic)!

Awww! They had us at "hello"!
Renée Zellweger and her pretty new boy-toy Doyle Bramhall II were spotted shopping at Abbott Kinney in Venice Beach over the long holiday weekend and their cuteness was OFF the charts!
We haven't read any passages from Bridget Jones' diary recently, but we bet the 43-year-old leading lady and her handsome new hunk cozied up by the fire and exchanged
romantic gifts bodily fluids on Christmas!
Doyle is a guitarist and singer for the group Arc Angels, which isn't entirely surprising considering her fondness for musicians!
Though we're sure Renée is grateful that Doyle, unlike his predecessor Kenny Chesney, doesn't cover his purdy face with a cowboy hat!!
Congratulations, you two! We can't wait to see what the new year brings you!

X Factor’s round one of boot camp last night saw its highs… AND its lows!
While judges Simon Cowell, Britney Spears, Demi Lovato and L.A. Reid were in agreeance on some contestants, others ended up creating a great divide!
Willie Jones wowed the panel back in Greensboro, but did he bring it again, this time around?
Check out Willie’s cover of Kenny Chesney’s She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy (above)!
Aw! Come on, Brit Brit! You know you love your Louisiana boy AND his “black boy tan!” Ha!
Though his audition definitely proved to be better than last night’s performance, Willie still made it through for another chance at $5 million!
Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley are preppin' to host the 46th annual CMA Awards again this year, but they're probably doing a little celebrating today too.
Both have been nominated in two HUGE categories!
