Brothers Osborne, Lauren Alaina and Dustin Lynch will announce final nominees for The 51st Annual CMA Awards, Country Music’s Biggest Night, live from New York’s Times Square on Labor Day, Monday, Sept. 4 on ABC’s Good Morning America. Brothers Osborne will close out the Labor Day show with a performance of “It Ain’t My Fault.”

“The CMA Awards are my favorite time of the year. It’s exciting to honor Country Music’s legacy, celebrate today’s artists, and reveal the superstars of tomorrow,” said Sarah Trahern, CMA Chief Executive Officer. “Unlike any other awards show, we represent a rich history of one individual music genre. And to have these three acts unveil our nominees on a national platform signifies a new era of talent and the continued growth of the industry, a core pillar of our organization.”

Nominees in select categories will be announced in the 8:30 AM/ET half-hour segment of the top-rated morning news program. The announcement will also be available via livestream on

Immediately following the show, the remaining categories, as well as the CMA Broadcast Awards nominees, will be revealed live on, as well as via Good Morning America’s Facebook page and YouTube channel.
