Nominierungen für CMA Awards bekanntgegeben

Wenn am 4. November in Nashville die Awards der Country Music Association (CMA) zum 49. Mal vergeben werden, können sich viele Newcomer aber auch einige „alte Hasen“ Hoffnungen machen.
So sind die Newcomer Kelsea Ballerini, Chris Stapleton, Maddie & Tae sowie Sam Hunt, nicht nur in der Kategorie Newcomer vorgeschlagen, sondern haben alle auch in weiteren Kategorien Chancen auf eine der begehrten Trophäen. Aber auch solch gestandene Künstler und Mitglieder der Country Music Hall of Fame wie Garth Brooks, Merle Haggard und Willie Nelson sind in diesem Jahr auf der Liste der Nominierten zu finden.
Die meisten Nominierungen gab es für Eric Church und Little Big Town mit jeweils fünf Vorschlägen.
Präsentiert wird die Award Show im November bereits zum 8. Mal in Folge von den beiden Stars Brad Paisley und Carrie Underwood.
