2009 CMA Awards Nominees

November 11th is the day, ABC is the channel if you want to see the newest winners announced for the 2009 CMA Awards. Brad Paisley leads the way with seven nominations this year, Keith Urban is not that far behind with five.

There was a small issue when the nominees were announced, Brad and Keith were left off the list of nominees for Musical Event of the Year, this oversight has now been fixed and they are on the final ballots for voting.

Be ready for some great performances from the nominees. Kenny Chesney with Dave Matthews, Tim McGraw, Vince Gill with Daughtry, Brooks & Dunn, Reba, Brad Paisley and so many more are scheduled to perform and keep the show going. Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley are back to host the nights events and with their sense of humor it should be interesting.
