Dierks Bentley, Keith Urban, and Cam are headed to the Grand Ole Opry for a special event!

The country music artists will appear live to host a celebration five decades in the making when they announce the final nominees for the 50th Annual CMA Awards this Wednesday, August 31st.

The location of this year’s announcement adds to the already auspicious occasion as the Grand Ole Opry House served as home to the CMA Awards from 1974 until 2004, making it the longest running backdrop of the Awards and home to some of its most iconic moments. Bentley and Urban, with a combined 50 nominations and 12 wins across 8 CMA Awards categories, will be live with Cam from the Opry House stage adding another special moment to that history.

“Having these three artists participate together in our 50th Anniversary celebration on ‘Good Morning America’ makes this kick off to an especially historic Awards season a true celebration of our genre,” said Sarah Trahern, CMA Chief Executive Officer. “To have Dierks, Cam, and Keith standing on the Opry stage, where so much of the history of the Awards took place, just adds to the excitement of this year’s announcements.”

Nominees in select categories will be announced on Good Morning America on the ABC Television Network. The announcements will air in the 8:30 AM/ET half-hour segment of the top-rated morning news program on Wednesday.

Following the announcements on Good Morning America, the remaining categories will be revealed live on GoodMorningAmerica.com on Yahoo as well as via Good Morning America’s Facebook page through Facebook Live. The Yahoo-ABC News Network is the No. 1 Source for General News online.

The full list of nominees will be available at CMAawards50.com immediately following announcement.
