Wednesday night the country comes out. The CMA awards are Wednesday night at 7 on ABC. The CMA’s is always such an amazing show. The Good Morning Guys were nominated for a CMA Award this year and K99 was nominated for Small Market Radio Station of the Year. We didn't win.  We have had the pleasure of being nominated for a CMA award 3 of the last 4 years and actually won it back in 2008.

We were able to go the show that year and pick up our award on the stage and be in the audience for the show. What a once in a lifetime experience! We are sitting there in the crowd looking around at Brooks and Dunn in the row behind us, George Strait was seated just over our shoulders, Kid Rock was at the end of our row too. I can proudly say we were very popular that night as Todd snuck in candy and jerky and was feeding everyone in our area. They were all starved from a long show and Todd saved the day as the candy man. Not only did we take home a CMA award, we took home the gratitude of hungry people in the industry who dined on our taffy and jerky.

I hope one day we can be there again to bring another one home but know that was probably one of those once in a lifetime events. I get filled with pride when I watch knowing that I have one of those awards in my drawer and that I get to work in this industry for a living.

Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood will once again host the event. They are fantastic together as hosts and we will get to hear them do their smash duet “Remind Me” as well. One of the highlights I am looking forward to is Brad Paisley, Keith Urban and Vince Gill doing a salute to Glen Campbell. Don’t miss a minute of the CMA awards Wednesday night at 7 on ABC channel 7.
