On Wednesday, Sept. 1, Dierks Bentley and Miranda Lambert will announce the final nominees in five CMA Awards categories live from the "Good Morning America" studios in the heart of New York City's Times Square on the ABC Television Network. The announcement will air in the 8:30 a.m., ET half-hour segment of the morning news program.

On Tuesday, Aug. 31, Justin Moore and Chris Young will announce the finalists in seven CMA Awards categories from Nashville at a press conference at the historic Ryman Auditorium.

In Nashville, Steel Magnolia will announce the finalists for the 2010 CMA Broadcast Award Personality and Radio Station of the Year in four categories (small, medium, large and major markets), as well as the finalists for the CMA National Broadcast Personality.

"CMT Insider Special Edition: 2010 CMA Awards Nominations," featuring in-depth coverage of all the nominations, artist interviews and more, will premiere on Wednesday, Sept. 1 (11:00 a.m., ET). The 30-minute special will re-air on Saturday, Sept. 4 (1:30 p.m., ET), and again on Sunday, Sept. 5 (11:00 a.m., ET).

CMA's official radio partner, Premiere Radio Networks, will carry the Awards and Broadcast Award nominations live to Country Radio as they are announced each day.

"The CMA Awards final nominations are the most anticipated annual announcements in Country Music," said Steve Moore, CMA Chairman of the Board. "By making the announcements over two days, we hope to focus even more attention on all the deserving nominees and their accomplishments."

"The 44th Annual CMA Awards," known as "Country Music's Biggest Night´┐Ż," will be broadcast live from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville Wednesday, Nov. 10 (8:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on ABC.

Capitol Nashville recording artist Bentley recently released his critically acclaimed album Up on the Ridge, featuring his new single "Draw Me a Map." He has sold more than five million albums and scored seven No. 1 hits since the release of his self-titled debut. Bentley won the CMA Horizon Award (now New Artist of the Year) in 2005, and was named CMA's International Artist of the Year in 2009.

Revolution, the Gold-certified third album from Columbia Nashville singer/songwriter Lambert, continues with back-to-back No. 1 singles, "White Liar" and the four-week No. 1 song, "The House That Built Me." Her current single is the tongue-in-cheek "Only Prettier." Following a year of impressive accolades and her first ever headlining tour, she will hit the road again this fall as the headlining act for "CMT on Tour: Miranda Lambert Revolution."

The Valory Music Co. recording artist Moore was named Billboard's New Country Artist of 2009. He has earned consecutive smashes from his self-titled debut album, including the No. 1 gold single, "Small Town USA," the Top 5 "Backwoods" and his brand new Top 25 and rising hit, "How I Got To Be This Way." Moore's debut was lauded as one of the "Best Albums of the 2009" by The New York Times. He is touring alongside Brad Paisley on the "H20 World Tour" thru the end of the year.

Big Machine's Steel Magnolia broke a decades-old Billboard record and garnered a million downloads with their Top 5 break-out hit, "Keep On Lovin' You." Steel Magnolia is earning acclaim from fans and critics alike, having been nominated for four major industry awards so far this year. The duo are currently performing on Paisley's "H20 World Tour" and their new single, "Just By Being You (Halo & Wings)," is already Top 40 and rising. Steel Magnolia, comprised of Meghan Linsey and Joshua Scott Jones, will release their self-titled debut album on Sept. 21.

RCA Nashville recording artist Young recently earned his second consecutive No. 1 single when "The Man I Want to Be," the title track to his current album, spent three weeks at the top of the chart. The album also includes his first No. 1 smash, "Gettin' You Home," and his new single, "Voices." Young is currently touring with Rascal Flatts.

The audio announcement of the CMA Awards nominees and CMA Broadcast Awards finalists will be available via satellite and FTP from CMA's official radio partner Premiere Radio Networks. Premiere has provided outstanding radio coverage of the CMA Awards nominations for more than a decade.

Historically one of the top-rated awards specials of the year, the 2009 CMA Awards ranked third for the week in the 18-49 demographic and was ranked fourth for the week in Total Viewers during a very competitive sweeps period.
