CMA Awards Live Stream 2016: Watch CMAs Online!
The 2016 CMA Awards are taking place on Wednesday, and Gossip Cop has a live stream. Watch below!
The CMA Awards are celebrating their milestone 50th year. First held in 1967, the annual event honors the best in country music, as chosen by the thousands of members in the Country Music Association. The night’s biggest award is always Entertainer of the Year, which Luke Bryan won in 2014 and 2015.
But making tonight even more special will be the awarding of the Pinnacle Award. The honor was first introduced and bestowed upon Garth Brooks in 2005, and Taylor Swift became the second-ever recipient in 2013. Now Kenney Chesney will go down in history as only the third person to achieve the milestone.
Interestingly, though, Chesney isn’t slated to perform at the event, though Bryan and Brooks both will. Scheduled performers also include Florida Georgia Line, Jason Aldean, Reba McEntire, and Elle King. Co-hosts Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley will also take a break from emceeing to provide some musical entertainment.
Some Hollywood faces will serve as presenters, such as Jennifer Garner, Matthew McConaughey, and Sharon Stone. The ceremony will begin at 8 p.m. Eastern, following the online-only red carpet pre-shows. Gossip Cop will have coverage all night. NOTE: The live stream is no longer available.
