Pack your cowboy boots and grab your hat—you’re a VIP at country music’s biggest night of the year! It will be a night that celebrates the best in Country Music through riveting performances, heartfelt speeches and poignant tributes—a night to see and hear the most buzzed-about winners, outrageous fashion and memorable moments—a night to celebrate the music that melts your heart and feeds your soul.
You can bet the 54th Annual CMA Awards will be an event that sticks to your ribs like a steak dinner, with heartwarming performances, comedic sketches and exciting award reveals. But the best music in the world, the industry’s brightest stars, and all that style and fashion on the red carpet are just the beginning. Two winning couples will arrive and depart the Bridgestone Arena via a police escort and through the VIP entrance, enjoy VIP lounge access with chef stations, and have VIP access to an exclusive CMA Label After Party. It doesn’t get a whole lot better than this.
Both couples will take home a guitar signed by the CMA “Entertainer of the Year.” Last year superstar Garth Brooks took home the Entertainer trophy for the seventh time—whose autograph will be on your guitars in 2020? But the fun and excitement begin before the big night. You’re invited to an artist party the night before the awards show—don’t ask—you’ll find out which artist closer to show time.
The exclusive closed rehearsal prior to the 54th Annual Country Music Awards will not be closed to you! Bridgestone Arena will be busting with activity as rehearsals begin for dozens of country stars who will be performing, presenting—and winning. All in all, there are a lot of moving pieces to coordinate during the televised event and you’ll be privy to some priceless insider moments and amazing performances.
Here’s a fun fact: At its inception in 1967, the CMA Awards trophy was designed to resemble a chart bullet. Constructed of a rich walnut and a sturdy marble base, the trophy signified the strength, durability and warmth of the genre. A brass music note adorning the center read “Best Liked World Wide,” CMA’s slogan at the time. The limited supply of walnut wood in 1983 encouraged a transition to crystal, the material still used today. With the update arrived a new medallion in the center that has been modified only slightly since.
So, do you want to partake in the ultimate CMA experience?—cowboy boots on and paddles up!
Airfare to Nashville and ground transportation outside of what is listed is not included. Exact trip dates to Nashville will be determined after the auction but will be scheduled to coincide with the CMA Awards Show in November 2020. The winning couples will be able to choose which after-party they would like to attend—either Sony Music or Warner Bros. Records. A specific itinerary can be created based on the winning couples’ preferences. Dinner in Nashville can be at a restaurant of the winning bidders’ choosing and includes beverages, tax and gratuity.
