CMA Awards 2017: Find Out Who the Nominees are and Listen to Petty Blvd’s CMA Playlist

On Wednesday, November 8th, many country music-icons along with new artists, and bands will pack the house to enjoy an evening of great entertainment to honor the Country Music Association award winners😊!! I’ll be kickin’ it back, and rooting for a few of my favorite artists such as Miranda Lambert, Kip Moore, Bobby Bones & The Raging Idiots, and Chris Stapleton!

Last week, there was a call for press restrictions due to the tragic Las Vegas massacre. The CMA insisted that country artists keep their options on guns and politics to themselves. Following backlash from Brad Paisley, who is a co-host of the show, the CMA’s quickly apologized.

Now that we are just a few days shy of the CMA’s, I’ve put together a playlist to help get us in a Southern Laced country music type of mood!

I hope y’all enjoy.
