We remember CMA Awards speeches and performances that involve tears for a lifetime. Reba McEntire, Kellie Pickler, Blake Shelton with Miranda Lambert — you hardly need more detail to start reliving these emotional CMA moments!

Taylor Swift cried multiple times at the CMAs, but the first time she lost it on national television (in 2007) was the best. Not every highlight on this list of country's most tear-jerking moments from the CMA Awards involves an artist breaking down as much they involve viewers at home ruining their makeup. It was devastating to say goodbye to Johnny Cash and George Jones, and when Randy Travis turned up to sing again? We can't even talk about it!

Alan Jackson's all-time greatest CMA performance and Lee Brice's win for Song of the Year also make the list. There's certainly more to come in 2017 and beyond.

Remember: The best way to watch the CMAs is on TV, with ToC on your phone!
