For the first time ever, you’ll soon be able to own the most memorable performances from five decades of the CMA Awards.
The Country Music Association is partnering with Time Life to offer a 10-DVD collection that includes 127 history-making appearances from country music’s most prestigious awards show. You should start seeing the infomercial for the set soon, with CMA Awards Live: Greatest Moments 1968-2015 arriving at retail early next year.
Included in the package are a who’s-who of country royalty, from legends like Glen Campbell, Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash, Barbara Mandrell, Buck Owens, and Kenny Rogers to modern-day pioneers like Miranda Lambert, Brad Paisley, Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood, and Keith Urban. Naomi Judd and Charley Pride appear in the project’s bonus features and interviews.
Here are some of the memorable moments you’ll find on the set:
