Glen Campbell lands posthumous CMA Award

Late country legend Glen Campbell has scored an early win for Music Event of the Year ahead of Wednesday night’s (08Nov17) Country Music Association (CMA) Awards.
Singer Kelsea Ballerini helped to announce two of the winners during an appearance on U.S. breakfast show Good Morning America in Nashville, Tennessee on Wednesday, hours before the big ceremony takes place at the city’s Bridgestone Arena.
Campbell, who died in August (17), was awarded the Music Event of the Year honour for his Willie Nelson collaboration, Funny How Time Slips Away, while the Brothers Osborne took home the Music Video of the Year accolade for It Ain’t My Fault.
Celebrating the news on Twitter, the duo wrote, “Y’all!! Honored beyond words here. HUGE props to our directors Ryan Silver and Wes Edwards. They’re the true heroes behind the video. They shot it all in 2 days and NAILED it! Let the celebration begin!”
The Brothers Osborne will be hoping their luck continues during the main prizegiving, as they are also nominated for Vocal Duo of the Year.
Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood will co-host the 51st Annual CMA Awards, which will feature performances from both Brothers Osborne and Ballerini, who will be duetting with Reba McEntire, as well as Luke Bryan, Thomas Rhett, Chris Stapleton, and Little Big Town, among many others.
