Mobile Roadie artists win big at the 45th Annual CMA Awards
It was an amazing night at the 45th Annual CMA Awards on Nov. 9th hosted by Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley. With Hollywood and music superstars in attendance and over two dozen performers, 9 of whom have Mobile Roadie apps including Kenny Chesney, Eric Church, Darius Rucker, Chris Young, and Rascal Flatts, “country music’s biggest night” didn’t disappoint in the “Music City” of Nasville, Tennessee.
We’d like to congratulate all the winners of the CMA awards this year, as well as the nominees. Here are the big winners, some of whom are Mobile Roadie artists.
With a growing worldwide following and a library of chart-topping hits, this artist clearly has the Midas touch: Taylor Swift took the night’s biggest award, winning CMA Entertainer of the Year again (She won the award back in 2009), edging above fellow country superstars Jason Aldean, Brad Paisley, Blake Shelton and Keith Urban.
The Album of the Year award belonged to Jason Aldean who won with his multi-platinum selling album “My Kind of Party”, claiming the top spot against tough competitors like Blake Shelton with “All About Tonight”, Taylor Swift’s “Speak Now”, Brad Paisley with “This is Country Music”, and Zac Brown Band’s “You Get What You Give”.
And surprisingly (or maybe not), Sugarland won the “Vocal Duo of the Year” award for the fifth year in a row.
The Band Perry were the big winners of the night, taking home three awards- Best New Artist, Single of the Year,”Song of the Year” for their hit “If I Die Young” written by Band Perry’s Kimberly Perry.
Other winners of the night included Miranda Lambert (Female Vocalist of the Year), Blake Shelton (Male Vocalist of the Year), Lady Antebellum (Vocal Group), Jason Aldean with Kelly Clarkson for “Dont You Wanna Stay” (Musical Event of the Year), Kenny Chesney feat. Grace Potter for “You and Tequila” directed by Shaun Silva (Music Video), and Mac McAnally for Guitar (Musician).
