45th Annual CMA Nominees Announcement Date Set

Nominees for the 45th Annual CMAs To Be Announced September 6th!

The 2011 CMA Awards are quickly approaching, and it’s almost time to find out who all the nominees are going to be! We here at the CMNB newsroom, as members of the Country Music Association, have already had the opportunity to weigh in on the nomination process, and we are incredibly excited to who made it into the final nominations!

The announcement of the nominees will take place Tuesday, September 6th from two different locations. The Band Perry and Jake Owen will announce the final nominees of the first five categories at 8:30am on ABC‘s Good Morning America. This will be followed by a performance of “Barefoot Blue Jean Night” by Owen!.

The nominees in the last seven categories will be announced from a press conference at the Ryman in Nashville by Jerrod Niemann and Thompson Square. (Also in NASHVILLE, duo The Janedear Girls will announce the finalists for the 2011 CMA Broadcast Award Personality and Radio Station of the Year in four categories (small, medium, large, and major markets), as well as the finalists for the CMA National Broadcast Personality.)

Stay tuned because as soon as the nominees are announced we will have them posted for you!

The 45th Annual Country Music Association Awards will be hosted by Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley and air at 7pm on Wednesday, November 9th at 7pm.
