The history

The Country Music Association Awards are tonight, and for the first time in the show’s 54-year history, the Country Music Hall of Fame Awards will be presented during the live telecast. The show will air live on CBS from Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena at 8pm ET.

The first awards

The first awards show was held in 1967 and was called the Cavalcade of Country Music Awards. It was held in Nashville, Tennessee and had several big names in country music already. The next year, it was renamed the Country Music Association Awards, or CMA Awards for short, and became an annual event.

In 1970, the awards show expanded to two nights due to popular demand and moved to a new venue, the Grand Ole Opry House. The show continued to grow in popularity throughout the years, eventually moving to larger venues such as Madison Square Garden in New York City and Hollywood’s Universal Amphitheatre.

The CMA Awards is now one of country music’s biggest nights, with A-list celebrities attending and performing at the show every year. If you’re a fan of country music, be sure to tune in tonight to catch all the action!

The awardees

The prestigious Country Music Hall of Fame Awards are held every year to honor those artists who have made a significant contribution to the genre throughout their careers. This year, the awardees are country music legend Reba McEntire and record-breaking duo Brooks & Dunn.

The awardees are chosen by a vote of the Country Music Association’s membership, which is made up of industry professionals such as music journalists, radio DJs, and label executives. The CMA Awards are one of the genre’s most prestigious honors, and tonight’s ceremony is sure to be a star-studded event.

The future

Arlington, Virginia will be the future home of the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, the Country Music Association announced today. The awards show will be held in Nashville, Tennessee.

The next awards

The next awards ceremony will be held in Nashville, Tennessee on November 8th, 2019. This will be the 54th annual Country Music Hall of Fame Awards.

The new nominees

The future of country music was on full display at the Country Music Hall of Fame induction ceremony on Sunday night (Oct. 20), as three newer acts were welcomed into the genre’s most esteemed organization. Alan Jackson, Brooks & Dunn and Jerry Jeff Walker were feted with the highest honor that can be bestowed upon a country artist, and each made a mark on the evening in his own way.

Jackson, who was inducted by Wayne Newton, gave an emotional speech in which he spoke about how he never dreamed he would be standing on that stage. “I remember being a little boy in Newnan, Georgia, laying in my bed at night with my cousin Eddie, who lived next door,” he said. “We would talk about what we wanted to do when we grew up. And I said, ‘I want to play guitar and sing like Hank Williams.’ And he said, ‘I want to be an astronaut.’ Neither one of us got to do exactly what we wanted to do, but we both ended up in Nashville.”

Brooks & Dunn were inducted by Reba McEntire, with whom they had one of the most successful duos in country music history. The two recalled how they first met at a songwriters’ meeting and didn’t hit it off immediately but eventually realized they had a musical connection. They went on to have 26 No. 1 hits over the course of their career.

Walker was inducted by his friend and collaborator Lyle Lovett, who spoke about how Walker had inspired him early on in his career. “He’s one of those artists who’s made such an impression on other songwriters,” Lovett said. “You hear his songs and you go, ‘Well, I could never write anything like that,’ but you go home and try.”
