The Country Music Association (CMA) presented industry honors to four highly-deserving individuals Wednesday evening, November 29th, during an intimate CMA Board reception at the CMA Theater at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.
According to musicrow.com Eighteen-time CMA Awards-winning artist and Country Music Hall of Famer Vince Gill was honored with the CMA Foundation Humanitarian Award! Vince is known as “benefit” around town for all his charity work, so this honor is no surprise, but VERY well deserved! We couldn’t be happier to hear the news. Nashville Mayor Megan Barry and Nashville Convention and Visitors Corp President/Chief Executive Officer Butch Spyridon received the CMA Chairman’s Award, and beloved Nashville business leader and former CMA Board Chairman and President Kitty Moon Emery was posthumously honored with the Joe Talbot Award.
“Vince Gill defines the word humanitarian, and we’re thrilled to present him with the CMA Foundation Humanitarian Award, which has only been awarded twice before,” said CMA Chief Executive Officer Sarah Trahern.
