CMA Song Of The Year Winner Revealed

CMA Awards / Facebook

A sweeping win of the CMA Awards might be in store this year for one of the winners of the annual Song of the Year award – but all five nominees have taken their songs to the top in a way that nobody could ever imagine.

Songs that broke records like Sam Hunt’s “Body Like a Backroad” and even newer tunes like Jason Aldean’s duet with Miranda Lambert have earned nominations for this coveted award, but who will take the trophy home might be anyone’s guess!

The 2018 CMA Awards ceremony is sure to be filled with surprises, upsets, and a wild amount of fun. One of the first awards announced during this evening’s show will be the Song of the Year – which is different than the award for Single of the Year.

The Song of the Year award is given to the songwriters, while the Single of the Year is given to the performer. In some cases – both can be won by the same person!

Here are the nominees for 2018 CMA Song of the Year: 

  • “Body Like a Backroad” – Zach Crowell, Sam Hunt, Shane McAnally, Josh Osborne
  • “Broken Halos” – Mike Henderson, Chris Stapleton
  • “Drowns the Whiskey” – Brandon Kinney, Jeff Middleton, Josh Thompson
  • “Tequila” – Nicolle Galyon, Jordan Reynolds, Dan Smyers
  • “Drunk Girl” – Scooter Carusoe, Tom Douglas, Chris Janson

While everyone nominated is an incredibly talented musician, only one song can take home the trophy!

The winner for the 2018 CMA Award for Song of the Year is: “Broken Halos” by Mike Henderson and Chris Stapleton!
