CMA AWARDS 2022: See The Complete List Of Winners

CMA AWARDS 2022: The 56th annual Country Music Association Awards took place on Wednesday night at Bridgestone Arena, with Luke Bryan and Peyton Manning taking on hosting duties for the awards night.

First-time nominee Lainey Wilson topped the list of nominees, with her 2021 album Sayin’ What I’m Thinkin’ earning her a whopping total of six nominations, including album of the year, female vocalist of the year, new artist of the year, music video of the year, the musical event of the year and song of the year. 

Wilson is only the fourth artist in history to debut on the CMA ballot with six nominations as a first-time nominee, following in the footsteps steps of Glen Campbell, Brad Paisley, and Kacey Musgraves. In her emotional acceptance speech, she gave a promise: “I know I’m new to a lot of folks, but I won’t let y’all all down. I promise you.” Wilson quoted.

It was a starry night for Luke Combs as he bagged the coveted entertainer of the year award and album of the year. Ashley McBryde, Carly Pearce, Chris Stapleton, and songwriter and producer Shane McAnally each have five nominations, while Cody Johnson and songwriter and producer Josh Osborne notched four each.

The night saw star-studded performances from Luke Combs, Cody Johnson, Reba McEntire, Cole Swindell, Luke Bryan, Carly Pearce, Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood, and Morgan Wallen. Jerry Lee Lewis, who passed away last month at age 87, was also honored in a performance by Elle King and The Black Keys.
