These Artists Have Never Won a CMA Award

When the 2017 CMA Awards begin on Nov. 8, the biggest question on everyone’s mind will be: Who will win? From Album of the Year to Music Video of the Year to the coveted Entertainer of the Year, the CMAs celebrate some of the most successful and innovative artists in country music each year — but even with over a dozen awards to hand out, there are still deserving artists who get snubbed on Country Music’s Biggest Night.

In fact, in some cases, legendary artists whom you might assume have multiple statues at home … well, they actually don’t have any! While it’s surprising that artists such as Cole Swindell, Chris Young and Sam Hunt have yet to win a CMA, these relative newcomers to the country music scene still have plenty of time to take home a trophy. It’s the lack of CMA trophies for legendary and iconic country vocalists such as Marty Robbins that truly has us scratching our heads.

Click through the photo gallery above to discover some of the country stars who have yet to take home a CMA.

The 2017 CMA Awards are scheduled to air on ABC on Nov. 8, at 8PM ET; the ceremony will take place live at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. Paisley and Underwood will host the ceremony for the 10th year in a row.

The Boot will be staying up late covering the most buzzed-about winners, fashion and moments at the 2017 CMA Awards. Readers can watch along with us by checking back to for the latest CMAs headlines, liking The Boot on Facebook and following The Boot on Twitter.
