POLL: Who Should Win Music Video of the Year at the 2018 CMA Awards?
The 2018 CMA Awards will take place on Nov. 14, but before the all-star party at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena for the 52nd annual event, The Boot wants to know who our readers think will go home with the awards in each of the show's 12 categories. We've rounded up the details on all of the nominees, from Musician of the Year to Entertainer of the Year, and we want your input.
Music Video of the Year is an award given to both the artist and the director of the winning project. The Brothers Osborne won the category last year, with their "It Ain't My Fault" clip.
Sugarland's single "Babe" delivered a dramatic video that features songwriter Taylor Swift, along with the duo's Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush; the lush, '60s-themed melodrama was directed by Anthony Mandler. "Cry Pretty," by Carrie Underwood, is as visually rich as it is vocally rich; directed by Randee St. Nicholas, the dramatic footage is classic Underwood.
Chris Janson moved us to tears with his music video for "Drunk Girl," directed by Jeff Venable, making for a notable contender in this category this year. Thomas Rhett's "Marry Me" is another emotional clip; it was directed by TK McKamy. And the video for "Tequila," by Dan + Shay, spins out a star-crossed love story, directed by Patrick Tracy, amid soaring Colorado vistas.
Who do you think should win Music Video of the Year at the 2018 CMA Awards? Vote in the poll below through the end of the day on Nov. 11. The Boot will use the answers in our readers vs. staff predictions a few days prior to the ceremony.
The 2018 CMA Awards will air live from Nashville's Bridgestone Arena on Nov. 14. The show is scheduled to begin at 8PM ET on ABC, with Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood returning as co-hosts for an 11th year.
