NASHVILLE - "Country Music's Biggest Night(TM)" now has official merchandise items available for purchase on CMAawards.com. Nine unique pieces were created for the event including a hat, tote bag, coffee mug, and six apparel items.

The unisex black event T-shirt was inspired by the 2011 CMA Awards Program Book cover art piece created by Nashville artist/designer Eva Oglander. The artwork is featured on both sides of the shirt with the event logo included on the front and the "Country Music's Biggest Night" tag line on the back. The commemorative coffee mug features a similar design with the program book artwork printed on both sides.
In addition, three other T-shirt styles are available for purchase: a women's blue T-shirt featuring the event logo within an abstract light blue heart; a navy blue unisex T-shirt with the event name prominently displayed on the front; and a brown unisex T-shirt with an earthy yellow and white text touting "The 45th Annual CMA Awards" and "Country Music's Biggest Night Nashville" on the front and back respectively. There are also warmer options for both men and women. A pre-shrunk, plum colored ladies hooded sweat shirt features a burnout pattern design with "45th CMA Awards" displayed on the chest in silver foil.
