While there is definitely a good percentage of people at the moment watching the normal primetime lineup, ABC is certainly doing something a little bit different tonight with the annual CMA Awards. There are many performances featuring some of country music’s biggest stars, but there are also some big winners to boot!
This is an article that will be updated a little later in the night with some more results of the show; note that we are not a music site by any means, so we are going to leave most of the actual analysis to you. Still, we want to be a source of some of the night’s biggest winners and potentially their TV ties.
Single of the Year – Miranda Lambert, “Automatic.” Remember the days of “Nashville Star”? She has come a long way!
