CMA song cat­e­gories hard to pre­dict

The Sun Herald - - Stay Connected -

The con­test for the year’s best coun­try songs is just around the cor­ner at the Coun­try Mu­sic As­so­ci­a­tion Awards.

The cat­e­gories song and sin­gle of the year look sim­i­lar with three songs nom­i­nated in both, but the writ­ers be­hind the hits say these awards are hard to pre­dict.

Nom­i­nees in­clude Bebe Rexha and Florida Georgia Line’s “Meant to Be,” Dan + Shay’s “Tequila” and Sam Hunt’s “Body Like a Back Road.”

Song­writer-pro­ducer and nom­i­nee Shane McA­nally called the song of the year cat­e­gory a five-way race with no clear leader.

The CMA Awards will air live Wed­nes­day.
