The CMA has described the 54th annual CMA Awards, to be held at Nashville’s Music City Center, as “the first time the biggest names in country music will come together — safely, all in one room — this year.”
“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,” CMA chief executive officer Sarah Trahern said. The show will not have its usual audience of fans due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Brice and Pearce are nominated for their duet “I Hope You’re Happy Now” in the musical event of the year and music video of the year categories.
The 2020 CMA Awards,hosted by Reba McEntire and Darius Rucker, will air on ABC at 8 p.m. ET on Nov. 11.
