“Obviously the 50th anniversary is a huge milestone for the CMA and for me to be on stage performing, and nominated for two awards, is very important and amazing and flattering,” he said.

“I’m excited. It’s going to be a special night with a lot of present, past, and iconic, heroic artists in the room, so I’m excited about the show,” Bryan added.

Dierks Bentley begins the day Wednesday morning with a performance on Bridgestone plaza. It’s free to the public.

The concert will air on Good Morning America right here on News 2 with the CMA red carpet kicking off later that evening.
