On Wednesday night, the biggest names in country music will all head to the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville for the biggest country night of the year.
The 2016 Country Music Awards will be hosted by mega-stars Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley, and promises to be especially entertaining as we celebrate 50 years of CMAs. This will mark the ninth year that the pair have hosted together. In addition, Carrie Underwood earned four nominations this year. Along with Female Vocalist of the Year, she pulled the nomination for Entertainer of the Year. Her album, Storyteller, is up for Album of the Year. Plus, along with Keith Urban, she appears asa nominee for Musical Event of the Year.
You can see the full list of nominees right here.
To commemorate this special evening, CMA created the “biggest music video in County Music history.”
Per theofficial description:
“Titled “Forever Country,” the single and accompanying music video features 30 CMA Award-winning acts. This single was produced by CMA Board member and CMA Award winner Shane McAnally and the video was directed by Grammy Award-winning director Joseph Kahn. The music video is set to an intricate medley of John Denver’s “Take Me Home, Country Roads,” Willie Nelson’s “On the Road Again,” and Dolly Parton’s “I Will Always Love You.” All are former CMA Entertainers of the Year.”
It’s actually a pretty sweet mash-up. Admittedly, the best part about country music is that it makes you feel good. The lyrics are honest and the voices are steady. So, you can check out the video below before you sit down for the awards show:
Of course, there will be plenty of live performances that you won’t want to miss either. Including our hosts, there are a whopping 35 performers expected to take the stage. But I’ll be tuning in just to catch Jennifer Nettles hopefully bring the feels with “Unlove You.” If not, then I’ll be happy with anything Keith Urban sings from Ripcord.
