The 2016 CMA Awards couldn't have kicked off with a bigger bang. From the star-studded tribute to some of the genre's greatest hits that kicked off the Awards' 50th anniversary show to impeccable duo performances from country's biggest legends, Wednesday night's (Nov. 2) awards will absolutely go down as a night to remember.

If you missed the night's biggest performances — such as Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood's medley of country classics, or perhaps Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood's hilarious hosting antics — browse through the photo gallery above to see photos from throughout Country Music's Biggest Night.
