Who Was The CMA Male Vocalist of the Year 30 Years Ago?

As we prepare for Country Music’s Biggest Night, the CMA Awards, on Wednesday, Nov. 6, 2013, we take a moment to remember some big winners of Country Music’s past.

Who Was The CMA Male Vocalist of the Year in 1983?

Lee Greenwood.  Best known for the patriotic classic ‘God Bless The U.S.A,’ written in 1983, Greenwood won this honor prior to his signature song becoming the CMA Song of the Year in 1985. At the time of his win, he was hot on the charts with ‘It Turns Me Inside Out,’ ‘Ring On Her Finger, Time On Her Hands,’ ‘Ain’t No Trick’ and 1983′s crossover smash ‘I.O.U.’  Greenwood would again win Male Vocalist of the Year in 1984.
