Country Music Month is a celebration that takes place not only in Music City, but all over the country. It is a time for Country Music fans to come together and share their favorite genre with the world. This month highlights where we’ve been, where we are now, and where we are headed.
Most importantly, October is about having FUN in the name of Country Music!
Country Music Month leads up to Country Music’s Biggest Night, which is just three weeks away. On Wednesday, Nov. 6th, “The 47th Annual CMA Awards” will broadcast LIVE on ABC at 8|7c from Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn. Check out the growing list of performers and you’ll believe us when we say, you won’t want to miss it!
