Its a big night in Nashville, the CMT Music Awards are tonight and country music's hottest stars are ready to shine.  Kid Rock hosts for the second year and that should make for some interesting television. 

Some of the highlights:  Toby Keith performs for the 10th consecutive time.  Toby is the only performer who has performed every year since the awards show began 10 years ago.

Shania Twain will appear tonight with Taylor Swift in a Thelma & Louise-inspired video parody which will serve as the show open.

Here is a preview of tonights awards along with a behind the scenes look from CMT.
