Lace up those cowboy boots- one of the most epic nights in country music is finally here!
Some of the greatest names in the music industry will gather tonight to celebrate country music in this fan-voted awards ceremony.
Charles Esten, the star of Country Music Television’s hit show Nashville, will be hosting the awards. Esten commented, “There is no other show quite like the CMT Music Awards. It’s a show fully dedicated to the fans and an annual chance for them to place their votes for their favorite artists. Besides always being flat-out fun, it’s also always been a stage for magical musical moments- and a place where some of country’s biggest legends have been made.”
Country stars Thomas Rhett, Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert and Brett Eldredge are scheduled to preform, but viewers can also expect some show-stopping collaborations such as The Chainsmokers and Florida Georgia Line, Lady Antebellum and Earth, Wind & Fire and Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood will perform their first live duet together on CMT.
If all that isn’t enough, Luke Bryan and Jason Derulo will team up for a special performance along with some additional collaborations from other country stars in a tribute to American musician, Gregg Allman, who passed away last month.
Currently holding the most “CMT Music Awards” prizes, Carrie Underwood is nominated for another three trophies this year but, Keith Urban, Kelsea Ballerini and Thomas Rhett go head-to-head for the most talked about award of the night: video of the year.
Basically, it will be an exciting night for music lovers, but as most of us won’t be attending the live show in Nashville, here’s how to tune-in from the comforts of your own home.
