The 45th Annual CMA Awards will begin with Macy’s Walk of Stars to kick off the event with red carpet arrivals, fan paparazzi bleachers, and global media interviews. The walk will be positioned on Demonbreun Street between Fourth and Fifth Avenues. Country music’s favorite artists and celebrities will walk down the red carpet lit by the iconic Macy’s “star” beginning at 4 PM/CT.

"Macy's is America's most popular store and CMA represents America's most popular music," said Sheri Warnke, CMA Vice President of Strategic Partnerships. "The Macy's Walk of Stars is the perfect partnership showcasing the best retail brand to the best Country Music fans."
Macy’s is also offering fans an opportunity to join in the excitement with an exclusive fan bleacher section in the paparazzi photo area, where the stars will stop for their fashion photos. Macy’s helped spread the word and kick off this partnership with a Facebook promotion that included a trip giveaway to the CMA Awards and $1,000 Macy’s gift card.
Macy’s is also continuing the promotions in Nashville with a special shopping event at the Green Hills location on the main floor on Saturday, Nov. 5 at 2 PM/CT. Shoppers can get glammed up with complimentary hairstyling by Macy's Premier Salon with feather hair extensions. Participants can show off their best red carpet pose and participate in a karaoke contest for a chance to win a pair of tickets to the 2011 CMA Awards. Participants will go home with a copy of their recording.
The 45th Annual CMA Awards is hosted for the fourth year by Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood and will take place on Nov. 9 at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville and will air live on ABC.
