If you won’t be near a TV to catch the “51st Annual CMA Awards” on Nov. 8, you can tune in on SiriusXM.
The satellite radio provider will turn The Highway (Channel 56) into CMA Awards Radio for a live simulcast of the show, 8-11 p.m. Nov. 8.
The limited-run channel will also offer music from nominees such as Luke Bryan and Thomas Rhett and interviews with nominees and performers, including from CMA Awards rehearsals and the red carpet (I’ll also be on the red carpet to provide updates throughout the evening on the Music Scene blog and social media).
The channel takeover begins at 4 p.m. Nov. 3 with a special CMA edition of The Highway’s Music Row Happy Hour, and runs through the end of the CMA Awards.
