TOP SHELF

When it comes to music awards show, country music is still king as the 52nd Country Music Awards dominated Wednesday night delivering for ABC their highest rating of the season with a preliminary audience of moran than 10.1 million people! Some context for you: The 2018 American Music Awards (AMA) drew 6.5 million viewers, the 2018 Billboard Music Awards garnered a little less than 7 million viewers, the People’s Choice Awards attracted 1.67 million viewers, the MTV VMAs got 2.25 million viewers, the Teen Choice Awards got 1.7 million viewers & the BET Awards drew more than 4.3 million viewers. I was seeing some stories populate about ratings compared to last year, but I think it’s important for whoever might be talking about this to point out that the CMAs still did significantly better than just about any other all-genre music award show this year.

TAILGATE WATCH

Fun two nights: tonight hitting The Fillmore in Silver Spring, MD for Chris Lane’s “Laps Around The Sun Tour” and then heading off to Louisiana for a very cool event called “Bayou Stock” with hometown boy Dylan Scott, Mark Chesnutt, Morgan Evans & Lainey Wilson. Dylan is starting this event to help hometown kids in need and was inspired by an event Tim McGraw used to host called “Swampstock.”
