CMA Donating Archives to Museum of Television & Radio

The Country Music Association will donate an archive of the CMA Awards broadcasts to the Museum of Television & Radio on Nov. 9 in New York City. The donation represents the largest single collection of country music-themed footage ever given to the museum. The presentation will include a 90-minute retrospective of the ceremonies dating back to its first telecast on network television in 1968. A panel discussion will feature longtime CMA Awards producer Walter C. Miller and Brooks & Dunn. The retrospective will be screened at the museum’s locations in New York and Los Angeles through Dec. 31, 2005.
