Being an ABC affiliate station gives us the opportunity to showcase all the amazing content ABC has to offer… and for our country music fans out there, that includes the CMA Awards.
On November 5, WOTV announced big news that we would be sending our fabulous reporter, Jordan Carson to the red carpet. This gave our West Michigan viewers a behind the scenes look at all things CMAs. From wrangling stars to top-notch performances, it was a day stacked with laughter and excitement.
Although, before she could go anywhere, it all started with a dress… and YOU chose the lucky winner from Second Dance in Grand Rapids.
While in Nashville, Jordan had the chance to catch up with our local CMA contest winner — we sent Stacy Sanders of Alto Mich. to the CMA Award show, all expenses paid. Take a look at her journey!
A few featured interviews on the red carpet were: Chase Rice, Granger Smith, Scotty McReery, and more.
A couple stars even gave a shout out to West Michigan viewers interacting with Facebook LIVE!
The CMA Awards broadcasted from Nashville on November 14, 2018, with Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood hosting the iconic awards show for the 11th consecutive year.
