When Are the 2013 CMA Awards?
Fans wondering, “When are the 2013 CMA Awards?” needn’t wonder anymore.
The 47th annual ceremony will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 6 at 8PM ET and be broadcast live on ABC from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville.
Last year’s CMA Awards took place five days earlier, with Blake Shelton being named Entertainer of the Year and Male Vocalist of the year and Miranda Lambert winning Female Vocalist of the Year honors. There hasn’t been a repeat Entertainer of the Year winner since 2008, when Kenny Chesney won his fourth straight.
The CMAs have taken place at Nashville’s downtown arena since 2006.
Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood are expected to host once again. It would make their sixth straight year as co-hosts, the second longest tenure ever behind Vince Gill, who hosted or co-hosted from 1992-2003. The CMA Awards have been broadcast on ABC since 2006. Nominees and winners are decided by over 7,000 industry professionals who make up the CMA membership.
