TNN Country Awards Gala
Tim and Faith salute the fans at the Country Award'sLots of exciting changes last year to the Awards show voted by the Fans. The year 2000 show looks like there will be more exciting changes to this prestigious Award Show. Moving to the Thursday night of 2000 Fan Fair week, we had a blast at the 1999 show. George Jones, Charlie Daniels, Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, Neal McCoy and all the stars were on the stage performing and receiving awards.

This longstanding and respected show was re-located last year to the brand new Nashville Arena, now called the Gaylord Entertainment Centre. Because of the demand for these tickets,  we ask that you book as early as possible. The TNN Country Awards Gala presented by Country Weekly Magazine, certainly the Night of Nights of Fan Fair week.

We will include Country Awards Gala tickets for early bookings.
