Toby Keith, Kenny Chesney + Tim McGraw Win Early CMA Awards [VIDEO]
The biggest night in country music, the 46th Annual CMA Awards, takes place tonight. KNUE will be broadcasting the CMA’s from 7 to 10 p.m. tonight. So those of you who have to work, or won’t be close to a television, will get to enjoy the show. KNUE’s Big D and Bubba have been broadcasting their show live from Nashville, and have given us fun interviews with some of country’s best stars, including Miranda Lambert, Luke Bryan, Reba and more.
Of course, our very own Jeremy form KNUE’s Taste of Country’s Nights has been in Nashville as well, updating us on all the CMA festivities and checking in some of country’s great stars. Don’t miss him again this afternoon with Danny Merrell.
The awards don’t take place until tonight, but we already know some of the winners in two categories — Toby Keith, Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw were announced in the category of Music Video of the Year and Music Event of the Year.
Toby picked up a CMA for his fun video of “Red Solo Cup.” Both Kenny and Tim won for their duet, “Feel Like a Rock Star.”
Tim and Kenny beat out some pretty stiff competition in their category, knocking out Alan Jackson and Zac Brown Band for “Dixie Highway,” Willie Nelson along with Snoop Dogg, Kris Kristofferson, and Jamey Johnson for “Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die,” Commordore Lionel Richie and Darius Rucker for their duet “Stuck On You” and Taylor Swift with The Civil Wars for the Hunger Games theme song, “Safe and Sound.”
Toby won from a pretty strong crowd that included Kenny Chesney’s “Come Over,” Miranda Lambert’s “Over You,” Little Big Town’s “Pontoon” and Eric Church “Springsteen.”
The 46th Annual CMA Awards air tonight at 7 p.m. live on ABC. KNUE will be broadcasting the live show tonight starting at 7 p.m.
