A New Hampshire venue could score a CMA next week. It's up against some stiff competition, including the home of the Grand Ole Opry.

Next week the 2018 CMA's will be handed out. A lesser publicized award is Venue of the Year. Among the nominees is the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion in Gilford, New Hampshire. The venue attracts major tours every summer.

Other nominees include Alabama Theatre, Ascend Amphitheater, Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre and the Ryman Auditorium.

Bangor's Darling's Waterfront Pavilion was twice nominated for a similar award in 2014 and 2016. The venue was twice nominated for an ACM Award for Large Capacity Venue of the Year.

The CMA Awards will be handed out Wednesday, Nov. 14 on ABC at 8PM.
