Toby Keith Says He’ll Skip CMA Awards Forever

Toby Keith will not attend the CMA Awards in the future because they haven’t given him enough awards during his career, according to an interview in The Tennessean, Nashville’s major daily newspaper. “I’m done with it, but I tried to keep that quiet,” he said. “I don’t want this to be sour grapes. … It never worked for me. I gave it a full shot.” Despite 27 nominations, Keith has only won two CMA awards — male vocalist (2001) and video of the year (2005).
