31 Days of Plots: The 2019 CMA Awards


To celebrate the achievements of 2019 and to welcome all the prospects of 2020, Live Design is conducting 31 Days Of Plots. Every day during the month of December 2019, we will highlight a different lighting design, from across theatre, concert tours, corporate events, and more.

The 53rd Annual CMA Awards were broadcast live from Bridgestone Arena in Nashville on ABC, Wednesday, November 13, 2019. Hosted by country stars Reba McEntire, Carrie Underwood, and Dolly Parton, the evening was crowned by Garth Brooks winning the entertainer of the year award. Lighting designer Jon Kusner, winner of the 2019 KOI-USA "sword" in the Awards Shows category, sponsored by Vari-Lite, for his lighting of the 2019 Billboard Music Awards, shares his lighting plots for the 2019 CMA Awards.
