This year marks the first time Brett Young received a CMA nomination. It’s for New Artist of the Year and he admits on theboot.com he’s a little nervous and excited at the same time. He’s up against Lauren Alaina, Jon Pardi, Old Dominion and Luke Combs. The 2017 CMA Awards are scheduled to air on ABC on Nov. 8, at 8PM ET; the ceremony will take place live at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood will host the ceremony for the 10th year in a row.
