– The 55th Annual CMA Awards will return to Bridgestone Arena in Nashville on Nov. 10, it was anounced today.
Last year's event was held at the Music City Centre in Nashville before a tiny audience of the nominees, their staff, guests and the crew.
Tickets go on sale via Ticketmaster to the public on Monday, Nov. 1 at 11 a.m. eastern. Ticketed audience members will be required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and will wear appropriate face coverings.
"We are so excited to return to Bridgestone Arena for this year's CMA Awards ceremony," said Sarah Trahern, CMA Chief Executive Officer. "We have a truly fantastic show in the works that we will share more about in the coming weeks. As we plan our return, it goes without saying that the health and safety of our guests and crew is our top priority. Due to TV production protocols and venue and local rules, we will require all ticketed audience members to show proof of full COVID-19 vaccination and wear masks unless actively eating or drinking. Both the house and backstage will comply with all applicable local health and safety regulations, as well as requirements from the television unions. We look forward to bringing our fans a night to remember!"
