Many of the most beloved country musicians will gather in Nashville on Tuesday night for the CMA Awards. The ceremony will take place from the city’s Bridgstone Arena at 8 p.m. ET on Nov. 8, and will broadcast live on ABC and hit streaming on Hulu the next day.
Lainey Wilson leads the nominations this year, picking up nine nods from the Country Music Association — nearly twice as many as the nearest finisher, Jelly Roll, who got five. Luke Combs and Hardy followed with four apiece.
This is Wilson’s second year leading the field of nominees, although in 2022 she managed to do it with a mere six nods. The CMA pointed out that she has become the first artist to ever get the most nominations in her first two years of getting any nominations at all.
Roll and Wilson are both set to perform during the ceremony, which will also feature performances by Chris Stapleton, Tanya Tucker, Morgan Wallen, Post Malone and show co-host Luke Bryan.
Also planned for the Nov. 8 broadcast on ABC is a tribute to Jimmy Buffett, via a medley that will have the late singer’s material performed by Kenny Chesney, Alan Jackson, the Zac Brown Band and a longtime member of Buffett’s Coral Reefer Band, Mac McAnally.
Although the ceremony will broadcast live on ABC, you can still stream the CMA Awards live online through a variety of live TV streamers such as DirecTV, Sling TV and Hulu + Live TV. If you’re okay with waiting, the entire show will also be available to stream the next day on Hulu.
