The CMA Awards
which are also referred to as the CMAs were first introduced to the world in the year 1967. Ever since that time period, it is at times confused with the Academy of Country Music Awards but it just as prestigious in the country music world. The recipients of the awards are chosen through a system of voting that involves only the business members of the Country Music Association. The CMA Awards
has its inaugural outing in the year 1967 in the city of Nashville in Tennessee. The Nashville Municipal Auditorium played host for the awards. The show itself was not televised but instead was a very exclusive ceremony. In 1968, the CMA Awards
held its second annual ceremony and even though the show was not televised again, it was, however, recorded and broadcasted later for viewing by a large number of country music lovers. In the following year, the CMA Awards
were broadcasted to its audience live for the very first time. Television broadcasting rights of the show remained with NBC for three years which ended in 1972 when they were transferred to the CBS network. This partnership too, however, did not last as the broadcasting rights were handed over to the American Broadcasting Company in 2006. The CMA Awards
has also seen changes in its venue on a number of occasions. The Ryman Auditorium was one of the first places where the awards were held. This was followed by the Grand Ole Opry House which played host to the awards for a staggering thirty straight years ending in the year 2004. Madison Square Garden has also been honored with hosting the awards and that happened back in the 2005, and from the following year, the awards have been held at the Bridgestone Arena in the city of Nashville.
