The evening kicked off Wednesday night with a performance by Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban and Brad Paisley, who may finally earn the award show's top honor, Entertainer of the Year.
Paisley - who is also hosting the 44th Country Music Association Awards with Underwood - has been nominated for the award every year since 2005. Though he's won 13 CMAs since first being nominated in 2000, he's never won the biggest award.
Paisley is a favorite to win, but he faces tough competition from Lambert, Lady A, Zac Brown Band and former winner Keith Urban.
Lambert, who leads the field with nine nominations, was an early winner. She kicked off her birthday by taking video of the year for 'The House That Built Me,' one of two videos she was nominated for. Her fiance, Blake Shelton, also got off to a fast start with a win in the musical event category for 'Hillbilly Bone' with Trace Adkins."
