Each year, the CMA Awards nominees and winners are determined by the more than 7,400 industry professional members of the Country Music Association, which when established in 1958, became the first trade organization formed to promote an individual genre of music. The first CMA Awards Banquet and Show was held in 1967. The following year, the CMA Awards was broadcast on NBC Television for the first time – making it the longest running, annual music awards program on network television. The show began airing on the ABC Television Network in 2006 where it still airs today.

Daddy, I’m afraid, won’t you stay a little while?
Keep me safe ’cause there’s monsters right outside
Daddy, please don’t go, I don’t wanna be alone
‘Cause the second that you’re gone they’re gonna know
Before he went to bed he grabbed my hand and said
Just ’cause I’m leavin’
It don’t mean that I won’t be right by your side
When you need me
And you can’t see me in the middle of the night
Just close your eyes and say a prayer
It’s okay, I know you’re scared when I’m not here
But I’ll always be right there
Even though I’m leavin’, I ain’t goin’ nowhere
Dad, we’ll be late, and Uncle Sam don’t like to wait
He’s got a big old plane that’s gonna take me far away
I know I act tough, but there’s a churnin’ in my gut
‘Cause I just can’t call you up when things get rough
Before I left, he hugged my neck and said
Just ’cause you’re leavin’
It don’t mean that I won’t be right by your side
When you need me
And you can’t see me in the middle of the night
Just close your eyes and say a prayer
It’s okay, I know you’re scared, I might be here
But I’ll always be right there
Even though you’re leavin’, I ain’t goin’ nowhere
Daddy, I’m afraid, won’t you stay a little while?
I never thought I’d see the day I had to say goodbye
Daddy, please don’t go, I can’t do this on my own
There’s no way that I can walk this road alone
Daddy grabbed my hand and said
Just ’cause I’m leavin’
It don’t mean that I won’t be right by your side
When you need me
And you can’t see me in the middle of the night
Just close your eyes and say a prayer
It’s okay, boy, I ain’t scared
I won’t be here, but I’ll always be right there
Even though I’m leavin’, I ain’t goin’ nowhere
I ain’t goin’ nowhere
