From the Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce joke to Lainey Wilson’s fiery performance, here’s everything that happened.

CMA Awards 2023 will mark the 57 edition as the annual ceremony has been taking place since 1967, which makes it the longest-running music award on network TV. The award program celebrated achievements in country music under various categories, such as best song, best album, best vocalist, best duo, best group, best new artist, best vent, and best video.

The starry night saw Luke Bryan and Peyton Manning returning to the stage to host the ceremony. And, of course, their gig made the audience laugh out loud.

The Taylor Swift & Travis Kelce Joke

Luke Bryan and Peyton Manning managed to make the audience laugh with their timely jokes and sarcastic comments. Right from their opening monologue, the two were cracking up everyone. At one point, per People, Manning said, “We’re back. You know what that means?” to which Bryan responded, “Yep, Travis and Taylor weren’t available.” This was addressed to the new couple’s highly-discussed outings and beautiful story.

Luke Bryan’s performance

Luke Bryan was not there only to host the show, but he even thoroughly entertained the audience with his singing performance.
