As usual, the CMA Awards show telecast was full of fiery performances, none hotter than the one turned in by Horizon Award nominee Miranda Lambert. The hot newcomer literally ignited the stage with her performance of "Kerosene," backed by blazing pyrotechnics.

Kenny Chesney kicked off the show with a rousing "Living in Fast Forward," from his just-released CD, The Road and the Radio. Garth Brooks lit up Times Square with "Good Ride Cowboy," his tribute to his good friend, the late Chris LeDoux. And Martina McBride received a standing ovation for her rendition of the classic "Help Me Make It Through the Night," written by Kris Kristofferson.
