Country Music Association Awards

Country Music Association Awards

Country Music Association Awards brings the best talent in country music and entertainment. This year is honoring the new artists and legends.

CMA Legends

This year was one of great losses. Wynonna Judd honors her mother and supports those mourning with her after her mother’s death. Wynonna states, “In death there is life, and here I am.” She continues to say, “These past six months have been a time to grieve and a time to be grateful. I am humbled and honored tonight to still have a seat at the table of country music.”

Carrie Underwood, Reba, and Miranda Lambert open the evening with a tribute to Loretta Lynn. This is is an incredible tribute. Lynn was a lifetime music for me from Hee Haw to Coal Miner’s Daughter to the music that was moving with the times.

Alan Jackson receives the Willie Nelson Lifetime Achievement for his talent and continued contribution to country music. He performs his hit Don’t Rock the Jukebox. His honors include 26 Billboard No. 1 country songs, 51 top 10 singles, and sold nearly 60 million albums in his career.
