Country Music Awards Come to New York

"Mommas, don't let your babies grow up to be mayors," was Mayor Michael Bloomberg's opening quip at a Tuesday press conference, where he announced that the Country Music Awards (CMA) will be held in New York on November 15 of next year. The 2005 awards ceremony will be the first time that the awards will not be held at its traditional home in Nashville, and marks the first event lured to the city by NYC Big Events, the city group charged with bringing large productions like the CMAs to New York. The event's economic impact on the city is projected to be approximately $30 million.
