Joey + Rory Receive CMA Award Nomination

August 31, 2016

Country stars Keith Urban, Dierks Bentley and Cam announced the nominees for the upcoming 50th annual CMA Awards this morning. Among the list of country superstars, RFD-TV's own Joey and Rory Feek received a nomination for vocal duo of the year.  Joey Feek passed away earlier this year after a hard-fought battle with cancer. 

Singer-songwriters Chris Stapleton, Eric Church and Marren Morris earned the most nominations  -- each earning five.  These are newcomer Morris' first CMA nominations -- including nods in the album of the year and new artist of the year categories. 

Superstars Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood will return as hosts of the 50th annual CMA Awards.  "Country Music's Biggest Night" will air live on Wednesday, November 2.
