The 2016 CMA Awards will air live from Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on ABC on Nov. 2 at 8PM ET. Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood will return as co-hosts! Performers and presenters will be announced in the coming months. It seems like it’s the first time in forever that Blake Shelton hasn’t been nominated for Male Vocalist of the year, and it’s nice to see Underwood return to an Entertainer of the Year nomination! Another special nomination includes, Joey + Rory for duo of the year, Joey’s life was cut short earlier this year as she lost her battle to cancer. A movie dedicated to her To Joey With Love will play one night only, September 20. For tickets and information see: http://tojoeywithlove.com/theaters
