CMA Crashers


Last year, the Andie Summers Show won the CMA for Major Market Broadcast Personality.  Andie & Shannon were invited to fly to Nashville and accept the award while being able to interview a ton of artists.

This year, XTU was nominated for Major Market Station of the Year.  I believe this is the 4th straight year of being nominated for Major Market Station of the Year and unfortunately, we did not take home the Win! Super bummer!

How can you not have XTU down at the CMA Awards?  That would be a travesty!

So…What did we decide to do?  Shhh, don’t tell anyone.  We decided to Crash the CMA’s.  Jeff Kurkjian from The Andie Summers Show and XTU weekend DJ extraordinaire Justin Franiak will rent a car and drive down to Nashville.  The CMA’s are being held on Wednesday, November 8th and you need a ticket to get in.  They might not be able to get a ticket but the artist interviews are being held on Monday & Tuesday.

Keep listening and checking back to this page to see Jeff & Justin’s CMA Crashers journey as they travel from Philly to Nashville.  What could possibly go wrong?

The CMA Awards

The CMA Awards stand out as one of the most prestigious shows in country music. The 57th ceremony is poised to maintain this reputation. In addition, the primary focus of the CMA Awards remains the awards themselves. The highly anticipated categories are Entertainer of the Year, Male Artist of the Year, Female Artist of the Year, and Album of the Year. Notable figures in country music, like Luke Combs, Morgan Wallen, Carrie Underwood, and Jelly Roll, stand nominated for awards. However, Lainey Wilson takes the lead as the most nominated artist, boasting nine nominations and demonstrating a significant presence in the field. See the full list of nominations here.
