Dustin Lynch + More Announcing 2017 CMA Awards Nominations on Labor Day
Dustin Lynch, Lauren Alaina and Brothers Osborne will team up to announce the 2017 CMA Awards nominations on Labor Day on Monday (Sept. 4).
The three rising country acts will appear on Good Morning America in a special Labor Day broadcast that will slant toward country music in anticipation of the yearly awards, which are billed as Country's Biggest Night. Lynch, Alaina and Brothers Osborne will announce the nominations in all of the biggest categories of the 51st CMA Awards, and Brothers Osborne will also perform their current single, "It Ain't My Fault," during the special GMA broadcast beginning at 8:30AM ET on ABC.
"The CMA Awards are my favorite time of the year. It’s exciting to honor country music’s legacy, celebrate today’s artists, and reveal the superstars of tomorrow," CMA Chief Executive Officer Sarah Trahern says in a recent press release. "Unlike any other awards show, we represent a rich history of one individual music genre. And to have these three acts unveil our nominees on a national platform signifies a new era of talent and the continued growth of the industry, a core pillar of our organization."
