You may have heard there's a battle over what network will bring you country music awards shows in the future.
ABC has been airing both the CMA Awards and the CMA Music Festival since 2006. If Sunday night's show is any indicator, the network will want to hold on going forward.
The broadcast of the festival attracted more than 7 million average viewers and was the most watched show in its time slot. That Nielsen rating was an increase of almost 1 million viewers from 2010.
Tickets to the 2012 CMA Music Festival are on sale now.
