CMA Awards Rock!
Country music stars were shining brightly at the 45th annual CMA Awards show in the heart of country music land Nashville, Tennessee in front of a captive national TV audience on November 9th at Bridgestone Arena.
Co – hosting this year’s event were the charming and popular country music personalities Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood. The show was well paced, energetic, and featured a mixture of musical performers from new up and comers Zac Brown, Luke Bryan, Lady Antebellum, Perry Brown and established acts such as Taylor Swift, Rascal Flatts, Kenny Chesney, Faith Hill, and Tim McGraw. Lionel Richie and the legendary Glen Campbell made special appearances, both receiving standing ovations. Some notables spotted in the crowd were former NFL Pitttsburgh quarterback Terry Bradshaw and TV’s “Modern Family” star Eric Stonestreet and the ever controversial Glenn Beck.
Mingling backstage during the show in a cozy country atmosphere once again was a potpourri of musicians, managers, agents, and promoters making this a truly special event.
The future of country music is definitely in good hands and Nashville and has a lot to be proud of for generations to come ….
