Country Music Association (CMA) Board Chairman and co-host of the CMA Awards telecast Kix Brooks will present the CMA's Award of Merit to the late Chris LeDoux, who died this past year. "Chris embodied everything that's great about country music," said Kix. "He lived with passion, integrity and a commitment to big dreams."
