CMA Tentpole Events

Our three major tentpole events allow us to celebrate Country Music and gather fans from around the world to enjoy (and discover!) their favorite artists.

Each year, nominees and winners for the CMA Awards are determined by CMA members. Since 1967, we have hosted the CMA Awards ceremony to honor and celebrate each year’s contributions to the genre.

CMA Fest is Nashville’s signature Country Music event, hosting tens of thousands of fans from around the world. CMA Fest is a one-of-a-kind festival with artists donating their time to perform so a portion of ticket proceeds can directly benefit high-quality music programs through the CMA Foundation.

CMA Country Christmas rings in the holiday season with a night full of festive classics and one-of-a-kind musical performances. The event is filmed in Nashville, TN and airs on ABC Television Network.
