The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum has announced that the 2022 Country Music Hall of Fame Awards will be televised. The awards show, which is normally held in Nashville, will be held in Los Angeles in 2022.
In 2022, the Country Music Hall of Fame Awards will be televised for the first time in the awards’ history. The announcement was made by the Country Music Association (CMA) on Wednesday (May 5).
The three-hour event will air live on ABC from Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on November 8, 2022. The date and venue were originally announced in 2019, but had to be postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The CMA Awards is country music’s biggest night, honoring the genre’s legends and newest stars,” said Sarah Trahern, CMA CEO, in a statement. “We are so excited to partner with ABC for the first-ever television broadcast of the Country Music Hall of Fame Awards and share this momentous occasion with country music fans around the world.”
“This is a big moment for ABC and our long-standing relationship with the CMA,” added Karey Burke, president of ABC Entertainment. “The Country Music Hall of Fame Awards is one of music’s most prestigious nights, and we can’t wait to welcome country music fans into our homes for this special broadcast.”
This will be the first time that the Country Music Hall of Fame Awards have been televised since they began in 1961. The awards were previously only available to watch via streaming on the CMA website.
History of the Country Music Hall of Fame
The Country Music Hall of Fame was created in 1961 by the Country Music Association (CMA), with Jimmie Rodgers being the first inductee. The Hall of Fame’s mission is to recognize significant achievement in country music and to educate its patrons, employees, and the general public about the history of country music. To be eligible for induction, an artist must have been active for at least 20 years and must have achieved commercial success and critical acclaim.
The idea for the Country Music Hall of Fame was first conceived in 1960 by Harold L. Krapola, a CMA board member at the time. The initial plans were for a small room inside the Hattie Hart General Store in Nashville that would display photos and memorabilia from famous country music stars. However, after discussing the idea with fellow CMA board members, it was decided that a larger, more permanent facility was needed to properly honor the achievements of country music stars. Thus, construction on the Country Music Hall of Fame building began in 1962, and it was completed in 1964. The building has undergone many expansions and renovations over the years to accommodate the needs of the growing organization and to better serve its visitors.
Today, the Country Music Hall of Fame is one of Nashville’s most popular tourist destinations, welcoming over half a million visitors each year. In addition to promoting country music through its exhibits and educational programs, the Hall of Fame also hosts many events throughout the year, such as concerts, film screenings, seminars, and more.
