What’s in store for the 50th Annual CMA Awards


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – The 50th annual CMA Awards are Wednesday night in downtown Nashville.

Dozens of artists are set to walk the red carpet before hitting the stage for a performance.

Among those performing include A cappella group Penatonix and Jennifer Nettles of Sugarland who will be putting their own spin on country legend Dolly Parton’s hit song “Jolene.”

Country superstars Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood return to the stage Wednesday night as hosts for the ninth consecutive year.

“Every year that you’re asked to host this is a huge honor,” Brad Paisley said. “But when it’s the 50th like this, you begin to realize that not only are you in charge of one year of the CMA’s, you’re in charge of essentially 50.”

The 50th annual CMA Awards will air on WBAY-TV 2 at 7 p.m.
