The 2022 CMA Awards are quickly coming, and many of country music’s top artists will be in attendance on November 9 at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena.
Alan Jackson, who will be recognized with the Willie Nelson Lifetime Achievement Award, will return to the celebration. Organizers will, no sure, be crossing their hopes that his presence goes off without a hitch. Alan reportedly stormed out of the CMAs ceremony in 2016 as Beyonce and the Dixie Chicks performed to commemorate the CMAs’ 50th anniversary.
Alan had made it obvious before to the event that he is not a fan of pop stars performing at country music award events. “Yeah, they might play some true country music,” Alan stated when asked about his aspirations for the CMAs’ 50th anniversary ceremony. “However, I understand the darn television station trying to garner ratings with anything they think will prop it up, with some huge event with some other type of performer on there.”
