This year’s CMA Awards will be broadcast live on Wednesday, November 10, from Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena.
“The CMA Awards is ‘Country Music’s Biggest Night’ and is one of the most highly anticipated events for our industry each year,” said Steve Moore, Chairman of the CMA Board of Directors. “It’s a night to recognize and honor our finest performers, songwriters, record producers, musicians, and music video directors.”
The CMA Awards nominees and winners are determined by the 6,000 industry professional members of CMA, which was the first trade organization formed to promote an individual genre of music in 1958.
Winners of “The 44th Annual CMA Awards” will be determined in a final round of voting by eligible voting members of the Country Music Association.
Final nominees in each of the 12 categories will be announced in early September.
