KEITH URBAN and CMA CEO SARAH TRAHERN presented BRAD PAISLEY with the CMA INTERNATIONAL ARTIST ACHIEVEMENT AWARD backstage at last NIGHT's (6/14) CMA MUSIC FESTIVAL. The award recognizes outstanding achievement by a U.S.-based artist who contributes to the awareness and development of Country music outside the U.S. PAISLEY was also the recipient of this award in 2011, and has since remained dedicated to including the international marketplace in his schedule. In 2014, he headlined the C2C FESTIVAL in LONDON and DUBLIN, as well as recorded the special “BRAD PAISLEY & FRIENDS” for BBC RADIO 2 before going on to headline shows in NORWAY and SWEDEN.
“BRAD is such a tremendous ambassador for Country music around the world,” said CMA CEO SARAH TRAHERN. “His undeniable talent, wit, and charm transcend borders and speak to the heart of the format – in any language.”
