CMA Awards 2018: The Complete List of Nominees

Hours ahead of the 2018 CMA Awards, two of the winners have already been announced on Good Morning America.

David Lee Murphy and Kenny Chesney’s collaboration “Everything’s Gonna Be Alright,” which reached Number One in June — only the second of “Dust on the Bottle” singer Murphy’s career — was named Musical Event of the Year, beating out the record-breaking “Meant to Be” by Bebe Rexha and Florida Georgia Line.

This marks the first-ever CMA win for Murphy, and Chesney’s 10th to date. Additionally, Thomas Rhett’s cinematic clip for “Marry Me,” directed by TK McKamy, was named Music Video of the Year.

The rest of the winners will be revealed during the CMA Award broadcast this evening, airing live from Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena at 8:00 p.m. ET. on ABC.
