CMA Awards 2021: The Complete Winners List

The 55th annual CMA Awards take place Wednesday night in Nashville. Ahead of the official ceremony, a handful of prizes have already been presented to nominees. Kelsea Ballerini and Kenny Chesney’s collaborative single “Half of My Hometown” was a double winner in the non-televised categories, taking home both Musical Event of the Year and Music Video of the Year awards.

“Growing up in East TN, it’s a deeper kind of home,” Chesney tweeted. “I’m thrilled for Kelsea to have won…. she couldn’t deserve it more.”

The 2021 CMA Awards, hosted by Luke Bryan, air live from Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena at 8 p.m. ET.
