Christmas trees, cold weather, snow, and Christmas shopping. Wow! Holidays are just around the corner! But before we get there, we need to celebrate the most prestigious moments in the country music industry. Anyway, it’s the Country Music Association Awards Y’all! Now, let’s take a look at the nominees of the said event. Brace yourselves, everyone.

“The Most Glamorous Event of the Year”

The Country Music Association Awards was created to recognize the exceptional attainments of the country artists and broadcasters in the industry. Moreover, the said event was brought out to the public in 1967. Thus, it became more popular when it was aired on national TV the next year.

ABC will broadcast the 52nd Annual Country Music Association Awards, and it will go live in Nashville on Wednesday, 8 PM ET. Our very own favorites Carrie Underwood, and Brad Paisley will host the CMAs. FYI, this will be the eleventh time that the duo will host the said event. Also, the distribution of awards was divided into 12 categories.

Based on the number of consolidated votes, Chris Stapleton leads the pack with five jaw-dropping nominations.
