Unseen Moments from the 2023 CMA Awards You Didn’t Catch on TV

If you were fortunate enough to tune in to the CMA Awards on Wednesday, then you had the chance to see some of the biggest country music stars in the world take the stage. But what you didn’t get to see was the behind-the-scenes action that took place at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. Lucky for you, PEOPLE was there to catch all the juicy details!

Brandi Johnson, wife of country superstar Cody Johnson, had a front-row seat as her husband sang a beautiful love song dedicated to her in front of a massive backdrop of her image. Although she appeared composed after the performance, she was later spotted wiping away tears, seeking a moment to regain her composure.

Cody Johnson wasn’t the only one making waves at the event. Rising stars Zach Bryan and Jelly Roll were seen seated next to each other, deep in conversation and sharing a supportive embrace when Jelly Roll won new artist of the year.

Country duo Maddie & Tae, who are also new mothers, discreetly left the ceremony early to attend to their children after watching the Brothers Osborne win an award.

During commercial breaks, stars mingled and chatted with each other, with Post Malone having a particularly memorable encounter with Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman.

Morgan Wallen and HARDY made a quick exit after their performance, while Luke Combs’ wife, Nicole, stood throughout his performance in a heartwarming display of support.

Host Peyton Manning showcased his knowledge of country songs, while performers like Chris Stapleton, Post Malone, and other nominees were seen interacting and having a great time at the event.

Jordan Davis’ performance featured a sea of cell phone lights from the crowd, while Tanya Tucker shared the stage with Country Music Hall of Fame member Charlie McCoy during her performance.

In a passionate acceptance speech, Jelly Roll’s words were drowned out by the overwhelming cheers of the crowd inside the arena, making it a night to remember for everyone in attendance.
