Jason Aldean, Lady Antebellum Reveal #CMAawards Nominees on @GMA 9/5

Country superstars Jason Aldean and Lady Antebellum are taking a break from their busy schedules Wednesday, September 5th, to reveal nominations for “The 46th Annual CMA Awards!”

Jason Aldean accepts Album of the Year in 2011 for My Kinda Party.

The megastars will appear first on ABC-TV’s “Good Morning America” during the 8:30 AM/ET half-hour segment of the morning broadcast to reveal nominees in 5 of the 12 CMA Awards categories, before heading to Hard Rock Cafe in Times Square to reveal the remaining 7 category finalists (9:15 AM/ET).

Watch the the entire morning’s festivities via streaming webcast at CMAawards.com beginning at 9:15 AM ET/8:15 AM CT.

“The CMA Awards are ‘Country Music’s Biggest Night™,’ and it’s something that all of us look forward to all year. From the day the nominations are announced up until the show, there’s a lot of build-up and anticipation for the Awards and also for the performances,” explained Aldean. “I feel honored to be able to help make the nominations announcement on ‘Good Morning America,’ and hopefully I’ll get to read some of my friends’ names that morning.”

Lady Antebellum performs “We Owned the Night” at the 2011 CMA Awards.

“I’ll never forget our first CMA nomination and what that felt like,” added Lady Antebellum’s Charles Kelley. “The CMAs have been really good to us the last few years, and it’s still unbelievable to me when I see our name on a list of nominees. That night is always such a blast because it’s your chance to catch up with everyone and celebrate Country Music and all the hard work put in throughout the year.”

In addition to the 12 CMA Awards categories, Lee Brice will be live from Nashville to reveal the nominees for CMA Broadcast Awards Personality and Radio Station of the Year in four categories (small, medium, large and major markets), as well as the National Broadcast Personality of the Year.

“It’s been a great year for me at Country radio,” commented Brice. “I’m proud to be able to honor those stations that have done so much for me this year by announcing the finalists for the CMA Broadcast Awards live from Nashville.”
