What is unique to this year’s show?
Unfortunately, country music lost one of its greats this year when Country Music Hall of Fame inductee, Charlie Daniels, passed away on July 6. Various artists like Jason Aldean, Ashley McBryde, Brothers Osborne and Jenee Fleenor plan to open the show with a tribute performance of his groundbreaking number, “When the Devil Went Down to Georgia.”
Other performers include Gabby Barrett feat. Charlie Puth, Little Big Town and Rascal Flatts, in addition to Justin Bieber making his debut appearance at the CMAs, performing his hit song with Dan + Shay, “10,000 hours.”
