13 Best Instagram Photos from the 51st Annual CMA Awards


The 51st Annual CMA Awards were full of surprises and show-stopping performances, but some of our favorite moments happened behind the scenes on Instagram.

13 Best Instagram Photos from the 51st Annual CMA Awards:

1. Hillary Scott and Morgane Stapleton

Of course this double-bump photo of Hillary and Morgane is the cutest. Did we say double-bump? We meant quadruple, right? Hillary said it best– there are six people in this photo.

2. Tim McGraw

Tim just keeps getting better. And Merle’s tie was huge.

3. Kelsea Ballerini and Karlie Kloss

Is it weird that I look at this photo and just wonder if they’ve heard Taylor Swift’s reputation all the way through?

hey @karliekloss you’re pretty.

4. Mike Fisher

How cute is Mike? And did he actually take that Carrie Underwood Barbie home?

5. Luke and Caroline Bryan

There’s no doubt in my mind that Luke and Caroline are having a lot of fun– all the time.

6. Niall Horan and Maren Morris

This photo makes me wish I was a One Direction fan.

7. Miranda Lambert and Natalie Hemby with Faith Hill

What if Faith just jumped in a photo you were in and gave you bunny ears? Would you even be upset? No way.

9. Jimi Westbrook

Why doesn’t anybody ever talk about how hot Jimi is? He is hot.

Handsome. @jimiwestbrook 📷 me
