The votes are in and the winners from the 2019 CMA Awards have been revealed! From Kacey Musgraves to Lil Nas X, here’s who took home the honors this year.
The biggest stars in country music are honored at the Country Music Association Awards, and the show’s 53 annual ceremony took place on Nov. 13, 2019 at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. The main attraction of the event is always the star-studded performances, but there are plenty of awards to give out, as well! At this year’s show,Maren Morris was the most-nominated star, with SIX nominations to her name. After the success of her sophomore album,GIRL, earlier this year, this certainly came as no surprise.
This year’s CMA Awards are honoring women in country music, and there are females nominated in every single category of the event for the first time EVER (aside from Male Vocalist of the Year, of course).Carrie Underwood, who is hosting the show, is the only woman vying for the Entertainer of the Year Awards, but she and Maren are both up for the highly-coveted Album of the Year.
