8 Reasons the 2019 CMA Awards Nominations Made Us Do a Double-Take
The Country Music Association's 2019 CMA Awards nominees were revealed on Wednesday morning (Aug. 28), with some of mainstream country music's biggest names earning multiple nominations at the upcoming annual awards show. To answer your burning question right off the bat: Yes, "Old Town Road" is nominated.
Write that nod down on the list of 2019 CMA Awards nominations that made us do a double-take. Also surprising (in a good way): Seeing Maren Morris' name so many times -- and seeing Blake Shelton's name at all! Morris is the most-nominated artist at the 2019 CMA Awards, while the recently snubbed Shelton will be looking to win his first CMA in five years come November.
