The 51st CMA Awards may not start until this evening but awards are already being handed out. Kelsea Ballerini and Laura Spencer announced the winners of Music Video of the Year and Musical Event of the Year during a special broadcast of “Good Morning America” from Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, TN.
The Brothers Osborne took home the prize for Music Video of the Year for their raucous “It Ain’t My Fault” video directed by Wes Edwards and Ryan Silver. The song was their fourth single from their album Pawn Shop.
The award for Musical Event of the Year went to Willie Nelson and the late Glenn Campbell for their collaboration “Funny How Time Slips Away” on Campbell’s last album Adios. The award carries some added weight as it comes only three months after the death of Campbell.
The rest of the awards will be handed out tonight (Nov. 8) during the 51st CMA Awards air at 7PM on ABC live from Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, TN.
