Country music is definitely the “in” thing right now. How can you tell? Well, when three major networks are in a bidding war to air one the Country Music Association Awards next year, that’s how. CBS, NBC and ABC have all placed large bids to host the country award show, with a deal expected to be announced at the end of the month. CBS was the home for the CMAs for 34 years before ABC hosted them for the past five years. For more information on the battle by the major networks, read the article on NYMAG.com.
This year’s Country Music Association Awards will be taking place November 9th on ABC live from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee. Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood will return as co-hosts for the 2011 edition of the show.
