The CMA Awards air tonight at 7pm on ABC. Brad + Carrie are back hosting and Keith + Miranda are performing among others.

Personally, I tend to always root for the underdog. What I want to do here is give you two predictions. The first is who I think will win. The second is who I want to win. Each prediction is noted as either "Think" or "Want" next to the nominee.

We'll double check how good I am tomorrow.
