The 50th Annual CMA Awards are just around the corner, and this year has some impressive nominees. Maren Morris and Chris Stapleton lead the pack with a large number of nominations. Stapleton himself was the big winner of the 2015 CMA Awards, snatching up five awards, including Entertainer of the Year. His CMA wins and performance with Justin Timberlake helped catapult his career.
Singers Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood will be hosting the award show again. Underwood will have a busy night! She has been nominated for four awards including Entertainer of the Year, and she’s set to perform.
A number of performers have already been announced, including our two hosts. Also on deck to sing are Dierks Bentley, Eric Church, Maren Morris and Keith Urban. It’s sure to be a night of unforgettable performances!
The Academy will also be presenting the Willie Nelson Lifetime Achievement Award to the well-deserving, iconic Dolly Parton.
While the Country Music Association is who picks the winners, we want to hear from the fans. Tell us who you think deserves to take home some of the night’s biggest awards.
The 2016 CMA Awards air Nov. 2 on ABC.
