As we are celebrating country music's biggest week, and the 51st annual CMA Awards, it's always exciting to see who's bringing who, who's wearing who, and who showed up with someone we weren't expecting.

Seeing stars walking the red carpet is so much fun, and a great reminder of all the cutest couples in country music. MSN has reminded us of some of the biggest Nashville power couples, and a lot of them are nominees tonight. This is by all means not a complete list, but just some of our favorites. Enjoy the festivities, and hooray for country music!
