2009 CMA Awards Coverage

Tuesday, November 10, 2009

Country Music Alive will be following the 43rd Annual Country Music Association Awards this year in a few formats...

The live- as it happens comments, winners, and other great information during the award show itself follow me on Twitter! I will begin shortly after 5:00pm EST. If you aren't going to be near a television, follow and add me to your SMS following for updates to your mobile phone. You can find Country Music Alive on Twitter as username: cntryalive

Of course, here on the blog I will have the winners list posted directly after the show, usually within 5 minutes of its conclusion. The performance list (who sang what) will be out shortly after the show or definitely by the next day. Then, in the days after plenty of commentary and such.
