Before Wednesday’s 52nd annual CMA Awards, we recommend some artists worth watching in the coming years.
When Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood take the stage in Nashville to host the 52nd annual CMA Awards on November 14 on ABC, we hope you’ll be throwing a hometown watch party.
In keeping with the Country Music Association’s vision “to bring the poetry and emotion of country music to the world,” we encourage you to round up friends and family for the awards show’s unveiling of country music’s current favorites.
Have a good spread of food and plenty of thirst-quenchers and make sure your speakers are in good working order so you can turn up the volume on the special musical performances by some of country’s biggest names. Luke Bryan will open the show with his hit “What Makes You Country” and says he’ll be bringing some rising stars up to share the stage.
During the commercial breaks, keep the decibels up and rising stars coming with our Future CMA Nominees Playlist.
We’ve compiled some of our favorite tunes by 10 of country’s rising stars. Keep your eye on these artists and when next year’s CMA Awards rolls around, you’ll be way ahead of the game.
