Country Music’s Biggest Night™ will take place at Nashville’s Music City Center on Wednesday, Nov. 11 and will be broadcast in international markets including Australia, Austria, Canada, Germany, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland and the U.K.

“We are thrilled to have this incredible group of artists taking the stage at the CMA Awards this year! It is a privilege to bring these live performances to our viewing audience with the energy and excitement that the CMA Awards are known for,” says Sarah Trahern, CMA Chief Executive Officer. “And although the show will feel a bit more intimate this year, we look forward to hosting our nominated artists and their guests as we celebrate the best of Country Music in a fully safe and physically distant environment. It will be an honor to bring the biggest Country stars in the world together – in one room – for the first time this year. You won’t want to miss it!”
