Bridgestone Arena and the Country Music Association have entered into a three-year agreement for the Nashville venue to continue hosting the CMA Awards in 2011, 2012 and 2013. “Country Music’s Biggest Night” has been held at the arena annually since it first hosted the event in 2006.
“Being the home of the CMA Awards is a great source of pride for us at Bridgestone Arena,” says Bridgestone Arena Vice President of Booking Brock Jones. “It is a fantastic event and first-class way to showcase our venue, the talented people in the Country Music industry and the community we all call home. We greatly value our relationship with the CMA and all that it represents. We are thrilled to extend our agreement with the CMA Awards for the next three years.”
“Country Music’s Biggest Night deserves a world-class venue and we have that with the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville,” explains CMA Chief Executive Officer Steve Moore. “Our industry appreciates the convenience and amenities, and our attendees enjoy the downtown location with access to clubs and hotels.”
This year’s CMA Awards will be held Wed., Nov. 9.
