The highly anticipated 50th Annual CMA Awards has finally arrived and the results are beginning to be unveiled, including the highly coveted award of “Song of the Year.” The nominees for “Song of the Year” are listed below: 

“Die a Happy Man,” Thomas Rhett

“Humble and Kind,” Tim McGraw

“My Church,” Maren Morris

“Record Year,” Eric Church

“Burning House,” Cam

Staying true to CMA Awards tradition, the award was doled out to the songwriter rather than the performing artist. Lori McKenna took home the gold for penning McGraw’s timeless single, “Humble and Kind!”

“Humble and Kind” has been certified gold since its release in January 2016 and has dominated the country music charts at No.1 in both the United States and Canada. McKenna has experienced a highly decorated career as a songwriter writing both Faith Hill’s “This Kiss,” co-writing Little Big Town’s “Girl Crush,” and many more.
