Following last year’s run at Nashville’s Music City Center, the Country Music Association’s 55th annual CMA Awards will return to Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on Nov. 10. Eric Church and Chris Stapleton are this year’s most-nominated artists heading into the awards ceremony, with five nominations each.

A host for the 2021 CMA’s has yet to be revealed, however, it has been confirmed that Reba McEntire — who co-hosted last year’s awards show alongside Darius Rucker– will not be hosting this year’s show. A limited number of tickets will go on sale to the general public via Ticketmaster on Monday, Nov. 1 at 10 a.m. CT. Ticketed audience members will be required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, and to wear appropriate face coverings.
