Keith Urban is one of the many performers on tonight’s (11/8) CMA Awards in Nashville on ABC. While it’s nothing new that he’s performing, he never takes a big performance like that for granted:

“It’s great I mean, it’s the CMAs. I remember opening with Brad Paisley one year and the curtain was about to open and I said to him, I go, ‘We’re opening the CMAs’ and just high fiving each other just to not let that moment be lost on us because this is 51 years of the CMAs, it extraordinary.”

The 2017 CMA Awards, Hosted for the 10th Time by Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood, airs live from Bridgestone Arena in Nashville tonight, Nov. 8 at 8:00 PM/ET on the ABC Television Network.
