“Everybody knows that CMT has a special connection with country music and the incredible fans that love it so much,” saidCharles Esten. “That connection is why our show, ‘Nashville,’ now has a perfect home on the network. It’s also why 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. I’m thrilled and honored to get to host this great event.”
More performers will be announced soon.
