5 memorable 2023 CMA Awards moments: Lainey Wilson scores big, Jelly Roll breaks out.  

During the 57th Country Music Association Awards, which took place on Wednesday evening, Lainey Wilson stormed the stage by winning five trophies and becoming the first woman  

to win the top prize in more than a decade. This occurred on a night when the fundamental principles of country music, which include sincere truths and lawless ways, were on full show.  

In addition to Wilson’s dominance, it was a succession of performances that told the tale of where country music is at this moment.   

These performances ranged from mainstays of the genre to a new generation of hit-makers and collaborators. Because Morgan Wallen, HARDY, and Post Malone,  

a rising star in the country music scene, will be making appearances, as well as Cody Johnson, Ashley McBryde, and the duo of Carly Pearce and Chris Stapleton, it is possible that the future of the genre may not look like its past.  

However, it seems that its commercial and cultural health is as strong as it has ever been. Wynonna Judd, who is a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame  

opened the ceremony by performing “I Need a Favor” alongside Jelly Roll, who was honored as the 2023 Country Music Association New Artist of the Year. She praised the development of the next generation of star singers in the genre.  

“Like so many (rising) stars, Jelly Roll is having the same moment I had when stars I looked up to, like Loretta Lynn, were honored that I (was seeking to follow in their footsteps),” Judd told The Tennessean newspaper.
