CMA song categories hard to predict
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.
