If I’ve said it once I’ve said it a thousand times , there’s no way Tim McGraw eats as many Slim Jim’s as he sings about and looks that good! #CCMAawards

“As we worked to create this show we didn’t want to lose sight that winning a CCMA Award is a monumental experience for an artist and that although it seems like everything has changed, the one thing that remains constant is the hard work and achievements of our artists,” said CCMA President Tracy Martin ahead of the socially distanced event.
“Every year we hand out awards that reflect the excellence found in Canada within our genre and we couldn’t imagine not doing that this year. We’re so grateful to our broadcast partner Global TV who, without hesitation, stepped in to help us create this incredibly memorable show.”
