Country Music Association Awards

Uit Wikipedia, de vrije encyclopedie

De Country Music Association Awards (CMA Awards) worden jaarlijks uitgereikt door de Country Music Association (CMA). Er worden de succesvolste countrymuziekvertolkers en -songwriters van de afgelopen jaren onderscheiden, de meest begeerde prijs is die voor de «Entertainer of the Year».

Met uitzondering van 2005, toen de uitreiking in het Madison Square Garden in New York plaatsvond, worden de Awards in de late herfst van elk jaar uitgereikt in Nashville. sinds 1968 wordt de CMA Award Show landelijk uitgezonden door de televisie. In 1991 was met George H.W. Bush voor de eerste keer een zittende Amerkaanse president te gast.

Geschiedenis

De eerste CMA-awards werden uitgereikt tijdens een ceremonie die niet op televisie werd uitgezonden in het Nashville Municipal Auditorium in 1967. De prijs voor «Entertainer of the Year» die avond ging naar Eddy Arnold. De tweede jaarlijkse CMA-awards werden uitgereikt in oktober 1968. NBC nam de ceremonie op en zond het een paar weken later uit. Sindsdien werden de awards live uitgezonden, meestal in oktober of november, door NBC van 1969 tot 1971, door CBS van 1972 tot 2005 en door ABC vanaf 2006. Vanaf 1968 werden ze gehouden in de Grand Ole Opry in Nashville (aanvankelijk in het Ryman Auditorium en van 1974 tot 2004 in het nieuwe Grand Ole Opry House).

In 2005 werd de prijsuitreiking gehouden in Madison Square Garden in New York. Sinds 2006 worden ze gehouden in de Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. In 2020 werden, als gevolg van de COVID-19-pandemie, de 54e CMA Awards gehouden in het Music City Center van Nashville.

Voorafgaand aan 2017 werden de awards over het algemeen gehouden op de eerste woensdag in november. Sindsdien zijn de prijzen echter verplaatst naar later in de maand om conflicten met een mogelijke zevende wedstrijd van de Major League Baseball's World Series te voorkomen, aangezien de ceremonie van 2016 op dezelfde avond werd uitgezonden als Fox's uiteindelijke uitzending van game zeven van de 2016-serie, die de CMA Awards versloegen in de kijkcijfers.

In juni 2021 kondigde de Country Music Association aan dat ze haar uitzendcontract met ABC zouden verlengen tot 2026.

Na de COVID-19-pandemie heeft de Country Music Association aangekondigd dat voor de 55e CMA Awards op 10 november 2021, leden van het publiek met een ticket volledig moesten worden ingeënt tegen COVID-19 en dat ze geschikte gezichtsbedekkingen moesten dragen.

Geschiktheid en stemmen

Albums en liedjes die zijn uitgebracht tussen 1 juli van het voorgaande kalenderjaar en 30 juni van het jaar van de awardshow komen in aanmerking voor overweging. Meer dan 7.300 personen van de handelsgroep Country Music Association stemmen via drie stemrondes op de genomineerden en winnaars.

CMA Awards-presentatoren

De eerste ceremonie in 1967, die niet op televisie werd uitgezonden, werd mede georganiseerd door Sonny James en Bobbie Gentry. Vince Gill was gastheer van de awards van 1992 tot 2003. Brad Paisley en Carrie Underwood waren co-gastheren van de ceremonies van 2008 tot 2018. Voor de ceremonie van 2019 was Carrie Underwood gastheer samen met Reba McEntire en Dolly Parton. McEntire keerde terug om de ceremonie van 2020 te organiseren met Darius Rucker. Luke Bryan was de gastheer in 2021.

Controverses

Charlie Rich 'verlicht' John Denver

Bij de uitreiking van de «Entertainer of the Year»-prijs tijdens de ceremonie van 1975 opende Charlie Rich, die dronken leek te zijn na het drinken achter de coulissen en naar verluidt pijnstillers slikte voor een gebroken voet, de envelop om de winnaar te onthullen. Toen hij zag dat de country-popster John Denver was gekozen, haalde Rich zijn aansteker tevoorschijn en verbrandde de envelop, waarbij hij sarcastisch verklaarde dat de winnaar 'mijn vriend, meneer John Denver' was. Velen zagen Rich' acties als een protest tegen popartiesten die overgingen op countrymuziek en het blijft een van de meest besproken momenten in de geschiedenis van CMA.

Kathy Mattea's aids-speech

In een tijd waarin de rest van de entertainmentindustrie rode linten droeg om solidariteit aan te duiden en het bewustzijn van de aids-epidemie te bevorderen, in een poging om controverse te vermijden, moedigde de CMA gasten in plaats daarvan aan om groene linten te dragen om milieubewustzijn aan te duiden. Dit viel niet goed bij Kathy Mattea, die verschillende vrienden had verloren aan de ziekte, en ze vroeg de CMA om hulp bij het opstellen van een korte toespraak over de kwestie, maar ze negeerden haar verzoek en ze nam het heft in eigen handen. Tijdens de uitreiking van een prijs in 1992 droeg Mattea drie rode linten en een groene en maakte ze de namen bekend van haar vrienden die waren geslaagd en hield ze een gepassioneerde toespraak die een discussie op gang bracht en het aidsbewustzijn onder de Nashville-gemeenschap verhoogde. Mattea werd een fervent pleitbezorger voor de zaak en bracht twee jaar later het album Red Hot + Country uit om geld in te zamelen voor aids-liefdadigheidsinstellingen.

Alan Jacksons optreden uit 1999

Op 8 mei 1999 bracht countrylegende George Jones Choices uit, een lied geschreven door Mike Curtis en Billy Yates, met een begeleidende videoclip die zijn worsteling met middelenmisbruik uitbeeldde. Het nummer werd vervolgens een Top 30-hit voor Jones en werd genomineerd voor «Single of the Year» bij de CMA Awards 1999, waarbij de CMA hem uitnodigde om een verkorte versie uit te voeren tijdens de ceremonie. Jones voelde zich beledigd dat de CMA hem verzocht een deel van het lied te verwijderen en dus gaf hij de uitnodiging door. Alan Jackson, die gepland was om zijn huidige single Pop a Top uit te voeren, was beledigd dat de CMA Jones de kans had ontzegd om het volledige nummer te zingen en daarom stopte hij tijdens zijn optreden met zijn eigen band halverwege het nummer en zong in plaats daarvan een refrein van Choices, dat een staande ovatie van het publiek kreeg.

Dixie Chicks 50-jarig jubileum optreden

Bij de 50e CMA Awards in 2016 keerden The Dixie Chicks[1] voor het eerst terug op het CMA-podium sinds hun opmerkingen over George Bush ertoe leidden dat ze op de zwarte lijst van de industrie kwamen. Ze werden vergezeld door de wereldwijde superster Beyoncé om een medley uit te voeren van Daddy Lessons van haar album Lemonade uit 2016 en hun eigen hit Long Time Gone uit 2002. Hoewel veel kijkers en critici het optreden prezen, kreeg het kritiek van sommige country-traditionalisten, die beweerden dat Beyoncé, een pop/r&b-artiest, geen plaats had bij een countrymuziek-awardshow. De opmerkingen polariseerden de meningen, waarbij sommigen opmerkten dat ze konden worden gezien als een racistische aanval, aangezien eerdere samenwerkingen met artiesten uit andere landen niet dezelfde hoeveelheid kritiek hadden gekregen en sommigen suggereerden dat oude wrok tegen The Dixie Chicks de extreme reacties op The Dixie Chicks hadden aangewakkerd bij hun optreden. Veel artiesten, waaronder Dierks Bentley en Karen Fairchild, verdedigden de uitvoering, terwijl anderen dat niet deden, waaronder Alan Jackson die naar verluidt de arena verliet.

Onderscheidingen

Jaarlijkse prijzen worden uitgereikt in de volgende twaalf categorieën: Entertainer, Male Vocalist, Female Vocalist, New Artist (voorheen bekend als de Horizon Award tot 2008), Vocal Group, Vocal Duo (geïntroduceerd in 1970), Single, Album, Song, Musical Event (afgesplitst van de Vocal Duo-prijs in 1988 als Vocal Event), Music Video (geïntroduceerd in 1985) en Musician. Het onderscheid tussen de Duo- en Event-awards is dat de eerste wordt uitgereikt aan twee artiesten die normaal samen optreden, terwijl de laatste speciaal is gemaakt om eenmalige samenwerkingen te eren. Negen onderscheidingen worden ook gegeven aan radio-omroepen voor Station of the Year en Personality of the Year (elk onderverdeeld in vier categorieën, op basis van marktomvang), evenals National Personality of the Year voor de gastheer van een nationaal gesyndiceerde show. Sinds 2012 is de ceremonie voorzien van een Lifetime Achievement Award. Vince Gill en Alan Jackson zijn de enigen die in hetzelfde jaar Entertainer of the Year, Male/Female Vocalist of the Year of Group/Duo of the Year, Album of the Year en Song of the Year hebben gewonnen.
