If you're not already a fan of country music before moving to Nashville, it's easy to become one once you're here. That's the case for just about every member of the Nashville Predators, and while they've been on the road for the past week, their home arena has been preparing to host the genre's biggest night.

The 53rd Annual CMA Awards take place at Bridgestone Arena on Wednesday evening, and a number of the Preds will be tuning in to see who takes home the hardware.

A few of them even made some picks ahead of time for who they think will earn top honors in the categories of Single of the Year, Vocal Group of the Year, Female Vocalist of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year, and the night's top prize - Entertainer of the Year.

Who will have the best tally by the end of the night? Tune into ABC tonight at 7 p.m. CT to keep track of the selections from Roman Josi, Dante Fabbro, Colton Sissons, Austin Watson, and the biggest country music fan of them all, Matt Duchene.
