Country Music #CMchat Community’s #CMAawards Prediction Results

With the coveted CMA Awards taking place in Nashville earlier this week, Country Music #CMchat challenged all of you to whip out those crystal balls, polish them off, and share with us who you thought would take home trophies during the 48th annual awards extravaganza.

So, how did you all do? Not too badly! Having logged thousands of votes in our poll, the community either guessed the winners correctly or came up just a little bit short, typically voting for the ultimate CMA Awards winner as a runner-up in this poll.
