Tonight is a big night for Nashville with the 51st Annual CMA Awards. The award show is a cherry on top for 2 birthday girls tonight.

Lauren Alaina has a lot to celebrate today. She received her first CMA nomination for New Artist of the Year and she turns 23 today. Winning an award like New Artist of the Year could be the best birthday present ever. She’s nominated along with Brett Young, Luke Combs, Old Dominion, and Jon Pardi.

Lauren Alaina got the birthday celebration started early this week with a pre-party.

Last night my family and friends came over for a birthday party. We had the party on a Monday night because I have been touring in Canada and couldn't do a weekend. We couldn't have the party on my actual birthday because this year I'm sharing my bday with the @cma Awards. I will take it! πŸ˜‰ My family drove in from home on a MONDAY. My friends made time for me during one of the busiest weeks of the year for Nashville. It was such a good reminder for me that life is about the people you love. I've been so nervous about the awards because I have my first nomination this year. I'd be lying if I said I didn't want to win. After last night, though, I have already won. Thank you to everyone who came to celebrate with me. Fingers crossed for tomorrow. Either way. CAKE. β€οΈπŸŽ‚πŸŽˆπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

Lauren will also be taking the stage tonight along with Dan + Shay for a performance on the CMA Awards tonight.

She isn’t going away empty-handed though, she won a BMI award Tuesday night.


Another popular Lauren is celebrating a birthday tonight, Thomas Rhett’s wife Lauren. Although she isn’t nominated for any awards, her hubby is. Thomas is nominated for 3 awards including Top Male Vocalist of the Year.

Thomas gave his wife some love on social media this morning.

This has been a crazy year for Thomas and Lauren. The couple welcomed 2 children this year, Willa Gray and Ada James. Thomas hinted that their daughters’ could make their red carpet debut tonight.
