In the last 10 years, country fans have come away scratching their heads after the Grammys. Artists and albums that are ignored at the CMA and ACM Awards are honored at the all-genre ceremony that takes place each winter. Only twice in the last decade have the CMAs and Grammys agreed on Song of the Year. Only three times beyond that was the CMA Awards winner even nominated for a Grammy.
CMA Fest is like one big gathering of every country star you’ve ever heard of and then some. So surprise collaborations — like Blake Shelton with the legendary Oak Ridge Boys — are sure to pop up during the festival.
Breakout country artist Chris Stapleton brought his trademark gritty, soulful vocals and star-making stage presence to the stage at the 2016 Grammy Awards, taking part in a musical tribute to legendary blues guitarist B.B. King.
Sam Hunt was up against standout artists across all genres for Favorite New Artist at the 2015 American Music Awards, including the Weeknd, Walk the Moon and more, but pulled out a win to represent country music.
