Earlier this year I tried to find somewhere in the UK that was streaming the CMA Awards but to no avail. It simply wasn’t being shown in the UK and there was nowhere that I could stream it from (that I could find).
I was delighted to find that the full versions of the CMA 2014 and 2015 awards are available on Youtube:
I’ve thoroughly indulged my country side over the weekend and watched both – though not back to back! I will be having a look to see if anything is available prior to 2014. I hope so!
One thing I did notice and was disappointed by, was the absence of Justin Moore. I’m a huge fan and I was surprised to see that he had not been included in either, other than in a presenting capacity in 2015. Other fans have asked about it and Justin comments on it here. Here’s hoping for 2016 Justin!!
I’m excited to announce that my ticket arrived this afternoon for Zac Brown Band‘s Jekyll & Hyde Tour which is great because I feel like I’m suffering from a real country music drought at the moment! The last gig I went to was Jason Aldean‘s Burnin’ it Down Tour in Corpus Christie in May and that feels like sooooo long ago now.
Some would say that ZBB isn’t ‘classic country’. I think I’d have to agree. The lead singer does have an amazing voice though and I’m looking forward to seeing them live. I have it on good authority that they put on a good show. As long as I can dance I’m happy!
I much confess that I wasn’t familiar with their music until somebody on one of the country music forums that I frequent mentioned that ZBB were playing at Wembley. I listened to some of their albums and enjoyed them. They won’t replace Luke Bryan, Jason Aldean or Justin Moore in my affections but I think it will be a good night.
There was a minor hiccup when I found that the Premier Inn was fully booked but hubby found a Hilton next door so end of panic! It is closer than the Premier Inn so it worked out well.
Right, I’m all set. Roll on 25th September!!
