How to Re-Watch the 2023 CMA Awards

The 2023 CMA Awards aired last Wednesday (November 8). The night was full of big performances, first-time wins, and emotional speeches. Luckily for those who missed Country Music’s Biggest Night, there are ways to re-watch the star-studded event.

Currently, fans can watch the CMA Awards on-demand through their TV provider. Alternatively, the show is available to stream on Hulu.

The Country Music Association enlisted this year’s co-hosts to tell fans about re-watch options in a social media video. The short clip gives fans a taste of the chemistry and comedy the hosts shared during the show this year. There are plenty of other reasons to re-watch the CMA Awards, though, that don’t include Luke Bryan and Peyton Manning.

For example, fans of Lainey Wilson who missed the live broadcast can watch the Louisiana native dominate the show. Wilson took home five awards including the coveted Entertainer of the Year Award. Additionally, her performance of “Wildflowers and Wild Horses” was a highlight of the night. She proved why she deserved the EOTY trophy in just a few minutes.

However, viewers don’t need to be fans of Wilson’s “Country With a Flare” to find something to love about the 2023 CMA Awards. For instance, Jelly Roll won his first-ever CMA Award last week. He took home New Artist of the Year. Then, he proceeded to give one of the most inspirational acceptance speeches in recorded history. One doesn’t have to enjoy the “Need a Favor” singer’s music to find his words moving.

Jelly Roll also delivered on the performance front. He opened the show by performing “Need a Favor” with Wynonna Judd. Seeing Judd on the CMA stage is more than enough reason to re-watch the show.

However, surprise wins and fiery speeches weren’t the only highlights of the night. Chris Stapleton took home his seventh Male Vocalist of the Year Award. Stapleton has dominated this category for nearly a decade. In fact, Luke Combs is the only other artist to take home the award since 2015. He won the trophy in 2019 and 2020.

In short, Country Music’s Biggest Night lived up to its name this year.
