October Is Country Music Month and CMA Is Ready to Celebrate!
We pretty much celebrate Country Music every single day around here at CMNB, but it looks like October is an extra special time for festivities as it has been declared Country Music Month! Since October 1964 the Country Music Association has recognized the month of October as the official month to especially recognize events and institutions of Country Music!
“‘Country Music Month’ was created to acknowledge in the city of NASHVILLE, the importance of Country music, what it means to our city, what it means to our country, what it means to us as a city in terms of our economy, our reputation as a center for business and tourism.” – Nashville Mayor Karl Dean
Country Music Month culminates in the 46th Annual CMA Awards broadcasting live from the Bridgestone arena in the heart of downtown Nashville on Thursday, November 1st on ABC.
