Ahead of the 54th Annual CMA Awards set to take place tonight, Wednesday, November 11th at 7/8c on ABC, two early winners were revealed.
Miranda Lambert takes home the award for Video of the Year with her smash hit, “Bluebird”. The award-winning video was directed by Trey Fanjoy. Additionally, Carly Pearce and Lee Brice received the award for Musical Event of the Year for their hit song, “I Hope You’re Happy Now”.
Pearce shared her emotional reaction to the win in an Instagram post, adding “This was the moment I found out as I sobbed on the phone in my pjs. Thank you, thank you, thank you. In a year that started as the hardest I’ve ever experienced, YALL are helping me see the big, bright, BEAUTIFUL light at the end of the tunnel.”
Pearce’s co-star on the track, Lee Brice, recently tested positive for COVID-19, will not be in attendance at the show tonight. Instead, fellow friend and country music artist, Charles Kelley of Lady A will take his place to perform the number one song with Pearce.
Hosted by Reba McEntire and Darius Rucker, the special show will be full of one of a kind moments as the country music family honors the highest talents of 2020 celebrating “Country Music’s Biggest Night”.
