Thread: CMA Awards

  1. #1

    CMA Awards

    Has anyone else seen the latest commercial for the CMA Awards?

    Toward the end of the commercial they say that a country megastar will return to the CMA's for the first time in 4 hours...and it showed a silhouette that looked like it could be Garth!

    Can anyone confirm or deny this? Its been 4 years since Garth was last featured at the CMA's by performing "Good Ride Cowboy" in Times Square...so it sounds like it could be him!

    The show airs November 11 on ABC.

    That would be my guess...

    How many other people REALLY count as megastars?

    And then how many haven't been there in 4 years?


    GARTH!

    Not sure, but I think they might be talking about Tim McGraw. I'm pretty sure that I heard it had been quite awhile since he was there, and he will be there this year. Seems strange that the CMA would try to make it seem like a secret though. I haven't seen the commercial, did they list Tim McGraw as a performer?

    Tim McGraw is listed on the website...

    Sorry, in my first post I put 4 "hours" but that should definitely say "years"

    Hmmm, and it is true that Tim McGraw hasn't performed at the CMA's in 4 years...but if they have officially announced that why would they keep it "secret" in the television ads?

    Hmm...who knows. I certainly wouldn't be surprised to see Garth on the show. It would definitely make sense...but I guess I wouldn't be surprised to not see him either.

    I read, or saw, something that said Tim has been "off" for the past two years. He hasn't toured, or released a new album, in that time. I believe that he has a new album coming out in the next couple of weeks. So, you can be pretty sure that Tim will be performing a song (his new single) from that album. Performing on the CMA's, or the ACM's, pretty much always boosts an artist's album and latest radio single.

    His new album came out a couple of weeks ago.

    Tim's also starring in the new movie "Blind Side" with Sandra Bullock. He might be doing a little promo work at the CMA's.
    Looking forward to 2015.

    I really hope it's Garth, even if we don't think it is! Although I love Tim, I haven't been as excited for his return as I have for Garth's!

    Tim McGraw is a great artist and his music talks about life's ups and downs. He's got a better voice than Kenny Chesney, in my opinion. I remember him saying that "Garth knocked down a bunch of doors for a lot of artists like myself, and he really showed me how to put on a concert", which I saw during his first NBC special in 2002. When he yelled, "Is everyone ready in the back?! I thought about Garth when he said that. "How about the front?," McGraw asked. "Back" (cheers) "Front!" (cheers") Let's get it on!."

    Remember the good ole days when artists would actually debut a new single at the CMAs or ACMs?? Watching/listening to an artist perform a song for the first time. Seeing if the new music had that "pop" that makes songs great. Going to the music director at the station to see if the single had come in yet, because everyone that watched the show was calling in asking us to play it...

    Of course that was back in the days when the CMAs aired during Country Music Month, I digress.

    Tim is already listed as a performer.

    Cma

    I think it is garth because my radio DJ here keeps playing garth & they never play Garth. Also Garth's manager was at a dinner yesterday for the CMA's. I live in Chicago and they usually know everything before it comes out. They keep dropping hints. Speaking of Garth The Dance just came on!!! Let's just pray it's him!!!

    Hey Everyone,

    So they just said coming up Tim McGraw returns to the CMA stage so I'm thinking its probably him that they are talking about.

    Take Care & God Bless,

    I saw the show. Taylor Swift's performance of her song "Fifteen" reminded me of Garth because she was on this little stage in the middle of the crowd and was surrounded by teens and 20-somethings who were singing every line with her.

    My mind was thinking, "This reminds me of Dublin, when Garth did If Tomorrow Never Comes on that little pod in the middle of the crowd."
