Will Dierks Announce His Own CMA Nod?
With a critically acclaimed new album, Dierks Bentley just may finally get the recognition he deserves at the CMA Awards November 10th. But first he's got to be nominated.
Maybe he'll announce himself when Dierks and Miranda Lambert announce the final nominees on Wednesday, September 1, in five CMA Awards categories live from ABC’s Good Morning America studios in New York City’s Times Square. The announcement will air in the 8:30 AM/ET half-hour segment of the morning news program.
But “Country Music’s Biggest Morning” is too big for one day! The CMA announced today that the final nominees for The 44th Annual CMA Awards will be announced over two mornings, from two cities.
Or, maybe, Justin Moore and Chris Young will announce Dierks as an Album of the Year nominee, when they read the finalists in seven CMA Awards categories from Nashville at a press conference at the historic Ryman Auditorium on Tuesday, August 31.
CMT Insider Special Edition: 2010 CMA Awards Nominations featuring in-depth coverage of all the nominations, artist interviews, and more, will premiere on Wednesday, Sept. 1 (11:00 AM/ET).
“The CMA Awards final nominations are the most anticipated annual announcements in Country Music,” said Steve Moore, CMA Chairman of the Board. “By making the announcements over two days, we hope to focus even more attention on all the deserving nominees and their accomplishments.”
The 44th Annual CMA Awards known as “Country Music’s Biggest Night,” will be broadcast live from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville Wednesday, Nov. 10 (8:00-11:00 PM ET) on ABC.
