Your entertainment dollar will stretch a little farther during the 50th anniversary of the CMA Awards on Nov. 2 as seven former CMA Entertainer of Year winners will take the stage to perform: Alabama, Brooks & Dunn, Vince Gill, Alan Jackson, Charley Pride, Reba McEntire, and George Strait.
This distinguished group of performers is among the most lauded artists in CMA Awards history, with a combined 375 nominations and 94 wins, including 14 for Entertainer of the Year.
