Reigning CMA Vocal Duo of the Year Brothers Osborne and rising Country Music stars Lauren Alaina and Dustin Lynch are slated to announce the final nominees for “The 51st Annual CMA Awards,” Country Music’s Biggest Night, live from New York’s Times Square Monday, Sept. 4 on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
“The CMA Awards are my favorite time of the year. It’s exciting to honor Country Music’s legacy, celebrate today’s artists, and reveal the superstars of tomorrow,” said Sarah Trahern, CMA Chief Executive Officer. “Unlike any other awards show, we represent a rich history of one individual music genre. And to have these three acts unveil our nominees on a national platform signifies a new era of talent and the continued growth of the industry, a core pillar of our organization.”
Nominees in select categories will be announced in the 8:30 AM/ET half-hour segment of the top-rated morning news program. The highly-anticipated announcement will also be available via livestream on ABCnews.com/live. Brothers Osborne will close out the Labor Day show with a performance of the anthemic “It Ain’t My Fault.”
Immediately following the show, the remaining categories, as well as the CMA Broadcast Awards nominees will be revealed live on GoodMorningAmerica.com on Yahoo as well as via “Good Morning America’s” Facebook page through Facebook Live and simulcast on “Good Morning America’s” YouTube channel.
CMA will then release and post to CMAawards.com the full slate of all CMA Awards nominees, and service a CMA Awards Nominees Video Highlights Package (VHP), which includes footage of the nominee announcements on “Good Morning America,” interviews, and music video clips.
