“The 52nd Annual CMA Awards” airs live Wednesday, Nov. 14, 2018 at 8|7c on ABC Television  Network. Country superstars Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood return as hosts for Country Music’s Biggest Night. The CMA Awards nominees and winners are determined by the more than 7,400 industry professional members of the Country Music Association, which when established in 1958, became the first trade organization formed to promote an individual genre of music. The first CMA Awards Banquet and Show was held in 1967. The following year, the CMA Awards was broadcast on NBC Television for the first time – making it the longest running, annual music awards program on network television. The show began airing on the ABC Television Network in 2006 where it still airs today.
