The 45th Annual CMA Awards is a week away, but the nominees were already celebrating Tuesday night (11/1) at a dinner in their honor at The Pinnacle at Symphony Place in Nashville.
“Keith Urban proposed the idea of CMA hosting a private event to honor all of our nominees,” said Steve Moore, CMA Chief Executive Officer. “It was a great idea and an excellent opportunity for our nominees and CMA Broadcast Awards winners to celebrate in a relaxed setting with members of the CMA Board of Directors without the pressure of a live TV broadcast.”
Each nominee was presented with a commemorative trophy.
The 45th Annual CMA Awards, hosted by Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood, airs live from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Wednesday, Nov. 9 (8:00-11:00 PM/ET) on the ABC Television Network.
