Country Music’s biggest night promises to be an entertainment extravaganza with Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley returning as hosts for the 11th year in a row.
News 2 is your ticket to the awards show, with live coverage on the red carpet before the show, and after the show.
The Live from the Red Carpet show kicks off on wkrn.com at 5 p.m. and continues on-air on News 2 at 6:30 p.m., the CMA Awards show starts at 7 p.m. and we’ll have an after party special on air and online after the local news at 10:35 p.m.
Two awards were handed out during Good Morning America:
- Musical Event of the Year went to David Lee Murphy and Kenny Chesney
- Video of the Year went to Thomas Rhett for “Marry Me”
It takes months to create the show open, and design the staging.
