As the longest-running annual music awards program on network television, the CMA Awards has shown America the beauty of country music for several decades. Whether it was yesterday’s superstars such as Loretta Lynn or Johnny Cash or today’s stars such as Luke Bryan and Carrie Underwood, it’s clear this music still holds a special place in the hearts of millions.
This year’s show, made even more special due to its 50th anniversary, is expected to be the best yet, showcasing the best of today’s artists with tributes to the legends who brought country music to new and exciting heights.
With this year’s show scheduled for June 9-12 in Nashville, the lineup for this special show will be better than ever. Scheduled performers include Carrie Underwood, Florida Georgia Line, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, and many others.
In addition, it’s believed this year’s Country Music Awards show will also contain a tribute to legendary performer Merle Haggard, who passed away earlier this year. And as usual, there will be extensive media coverage of this year’s event, with the Cowboy Lifestyle Network, Ak-Chin Indian Community, and Earnhardt Auto Centers Road Team providing both pre and post-award coverage.
Whether it was Eddy Arnold winning Entertainer of the Year in 1967 or Brooks and Dunn winning the Vocal Duo of the Year award an amazing 14 times, the CMA Awards in Nashville have been an important part of American life.
With George Strait holding the most wins in show history and Kenny Chesney and Alabama winning Entertainer of the Year Awards three consecutive times each, the CMA show has let country music fans see their favorite artists perform while also promoting the family values and beliefs that are so important to those who have a passion for America’s music.
First and foremost, the Country Music Awards show has been known as a place where country music legends are born.
From the First Lady of Country Music Loretta Lynn winning Entertainer of the Year honors to reigning Entertainer of the Year Luke Bryan, the CMA Awards are known for high energy, excitement, and a surprise or two along the way.
As this year’s show gets closer and closer, fans everywhere are anticipating a show unlike any previously seen in Nashville. With a combination of country royalty and songs that touch the soul, the 50th Country Music Awards show should be the best yet.
