This year’s CMA Awards will air on November 13, 2019, in 37 countries. The 53rd Annual CMA Awards is already making headlines as it will address country music’s great gender divide.
Where Is the 53rd Annual CMA Awards Venue?
Country music fans can expect some big-name country stars in Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena at the CMAs this year, which airs on ABC. Brad Paisley, who has hosted the show for 11 years, will once again team up with Carrie Underwood to host the CMAs. This year, however, Carrie Underwood has also enlisted Reba McEntire and Dolly Parton and together they will join forces to host an incredible female-empowered show. Executive producer Robert Deaton said, “we have one chance in history to be able to bring these three iconic women together.”
Female Country Music Stars Stand Up in Solidarity
This year, more female country music stars than ever are standing up in solidarity to bring awareness to the gender divide in the industry. Women in country music have called out the “lack of female inclusivity on country radio, as well as its trickle-down effect in the streaming age.” 1
It is also the first time in CMA history that a woman is nominated in all categories, except of course the male vocalist categories. A woman is even up for the prestigious Musician of the Year award.
