As many of you regular readers know, I LOVE Country music. Old Country, New Country, Pop Country, Rock Country…I love it all! With this in mind, I am always on pins and needles for the Country Music Association Awards nominations to be released, as the show is broadcast on ABC, this year on November 6th at 8pm. This is the big daddy of Country Music awards…the Oscars of Nashville, so to be nominated is a HUGE deal. The nominations were released on September 10th, so I thought I would give my opinions and predictions on who will take home the awards on CMA night.
Last night ABC aired their annual “CMA Music Festival: Country’s Night To Rock” special to the biggest demo ratings they have had in 7 years, thus winning the night. This was a big win for ABC, as they special aired last year against “The Voice”, so moving it to August worked in their favor. The special was a 3 hour compilation of the biggest performances from the CMA Music Festival in Nashville this past June.
As a humongous country music fan, I watched every second. It made me love that this brought together my 2 favorite things: Disney (in the form of ABC) and Country Music. On Wednesday, November 6th at 8pm EST, the piece de resistance of the Disney/Country combo shows itself in the form of the CMA Awards, hosted by Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood.Read More »ABC conquers Country Music thanks to the CMA
