“Hosting the announcement of the CMA Awards nominees in the historic Ryman Auditorium definitely set the tone for Country Music’s Biggest Night. The early CMA Awards were held on that stage. Announcing our final nominees from a location that has been an integral part of our format’s heritage and history added to the experience for the artists, members of our industry, and the numerous press outlets that attended. The venue, and significance of that stage, contributed a level of excitement that could not be duplicated anywhere else.”
