Here are my initial nominations for the 2018 CMA Awards.
Over 7000 members of the CMA are asked to make suggestions every year. Then, the most popular choices are published later this Fall to give members another chance to vote and whittle each category down to the FIVE final nominees. What do you think of my suggestions to get it all started?

Single of the Year (Award to Artist) - "Tequila" Dan and Shay
Album of the Year "Rearview Town" - Jason Aldean
Song of the Year (Award to Song Writer/s) Five More Minutes Scotty McCreery, Frank Rogers, Monty Criswell
