2018 CMA Awards {VIDEO}

Viewership has been down the past couple years, but it looks like this year may be different. Tonight at 7pm central time, be sure to watch the CMA Awards hosted by Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood. The list of performers is long this year including Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert, Eric Church and Brad Paisley.  I always love watching the live performances as it’s not possible to see everyone throughout the year. It does appear to be a great year for country shows all over Central Iowa this year.
