As country music eagerly anticipates the 50th Annual CMA Awards, the Country Music Association is encouraging all attendees to take a cue from nine-time CMA Awards winner Johnny Cash and honor the heritage and tradition of Country Music’s Biggest Night by dressing “to the nines.”

The industry will have the opportunity to show off their black-tie best on Wednesday, Nov. 2 at Bridgestone Arena.

Garth Brooks, Luke Bryan, Chris Stapleton, Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban will vie for this year’s Entertainer of the Year trophy. Eric Church, Maren Morris, and Stapleton top the list of final nominees with five nominations each. Dierks Bentley, Underwood, and Urban received four nominations and Tim McGraw received three nominations. Artists receiving two nominations include Kelsea Ballerini, Brothers Osborne, Bryan, Cam, Old Dominion and Thomas Rhett.
