CMA Awards 2019

CMA Awards

The biggest names in country music were out and about on Wednesday night (Thursday night Australian time) and there were winners aplenty.

The night was hosted by Carrie Underwood, alongside country music legends Reba McEntire and Dolly Parton, live from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. The show ran smoothly, in no small part thanks to the charisma of these three ladies.

The night’s biggest honour, Entertainer of the Year, went to veteran country star Garth Brooks, while Maren Morris took Album of the Year.

Earlier in the night, Kacey Musgraves won Music Video of the Year for Rainbow, while Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus’s remix of Old Town Road won them the Musical Event of the Year.

Blake Shelton took the stage to win the first award of the night for Single of the Year, God’s Country, while Vocal Group of the Year went to Old Dominion.

The night was also filled with show stopping performances from Miranda Lambert, Pink, McEntire, Underwood, Kelsea Ballerini and many more.
