Actually, it is a huge event enjoyed by many. I suggest for those who don't like it, don't go downtown and don't watch it on tv tonight. For me, I am looking forward to it!

Tommy, if you live here and are not happy, MOVE!! Just curious, who around the world calls Nashville stupid? Is it the millions who will be watching the CMAs on tv? Or maybe its the thousands who will be in attendance. I think you are just another bitter Joy Sucker.

TITAN1, have you ever watch CMAs when Vince gill, Reba, Dolly as host? Lmao, if you compare CMA to Grammy, Acadamy Award or any other big award on network TV and you notice any different? You either brain dead or clueless.

You should check the ratings and yes I have seen them many times and like millions of others I really enjoy them. Those you mentioned are very entertaining hosts. Obviously you don't like country music and probably should just tune out.
