“I think it was the best awards show I’ve been a part of.”
Following the 2016 CMA Awards, Eric Church reflected on what a great night it was for country music, calling it the best award show he has ever been a part of. Celebrating their 50th anniversary, the 2016 CMA Awards saw a wide variety of members from the country music family come together for one unforgettable night.
In addition to being part of such a historic event, Church and his album Mr. Unforgettable took home the award for Album of the Year. As not only a country music artist, but also a fan of the genre’s history, the award meant that much more for Church.
“Part of the reason that this award means so much to me is I’m a student of it. I’m a student of country music” Church told The Boot.
The 2016 CMA Awards will go down as one of the best nights in country music history. From the stars in attendance to the performances to everything else that happened during the show, the 2016 CMA Awards will not be forgotten anytime soon!
