Former Miss Kentucky USA Delivers CMA Awards
Maria Montgomery says she feels a little silly calling herself a “trophy girl,” but that’s exactly what she will be Wednesday. The former Miss Kentucky USA, a Boyle County native, has been selected as one of two Trophy Girls for the Country Music Association Awards Show, which will be televised live at 8 p.m. on CMT. This gives central Kentucky not one but two direct connections to one of the industry’s top awards presentations. Eddie Montgomery and Montgomery Gentry have been nominated for Best Country Duo.
