The 35-year-old country star posted a smiling selfie on Instagram Saturday evening (April 14) that shows no visible damage or scarring to her face. After a more than a decade spent with Sony Music Nashville, Underwood switched to Universal Music Group past year.

After five years away, Reba McEntire will host the event, often called "Country Music's Party of the Year", and superstars such as Carrie Underwood, Jason Aldean, Miranda Lambert, Keith Urban, and McEntire herself will perform.

Every day, more performers are advertised through social media to entice fans.

The show will feature top crossover collaborations between Bebe Rexha and Florida Georgia Line, whose hit duet "Meant to Be" has dominated the country airwaves, as well as Keith Urban and Julia Michaels' new song, "Coming Home", which is based on a Merle Haggard guitar riff. "But, listen, Carrie Underwood's going to be as lovely as ever". She performed her song "Legends".

Rhett's song Die a Happy Man also won the Song of the Year Award.

Facebook adds AR drawings and Instagram's Boomerang to stories
With AR drawing, you can scribble on the world around you, then move your camera and see the markings stay in place. This, in turn, allows a user to wrap his/her art on the objects which are visible in the camera feed.

Chris Stapleton, who released two top-selling albums past year, is the top nominee with eight. The acoustic trio tour makes good on a promise Cam made to a fan to always keep a space for real moments and real conversations with fans. If she wins, it will be her ninth consecutive win in this category; she is the current record holder for most consecutive wins in the Female Vocalist of the Year category.

Who could forget Brothers Osborne's unbelievable tribute to country legend Don Williams at the Country Music Association Awards. Tim McGraw and Faith Hill have their first nomination together as Vocal Duo of the year.

They are country music's power couple and have incorporated newer artists on their album, "The Rest of Our Lives" such as Meghan Trainor and Ed Sheeran.

"I think we knew that us performing on that show and if we did it the right way would be a big thing for everybody". Also, Dan+Shay's new music video incorporated deaf model Nyle DiMarco who taught a little sign language in the music video.
