CBS announced Thursday that it will present its inaugural broadcast of the CMT Music Awards live from Nashville on April 3, 2022.
CMT will kick off the company’s first ever Country Music Week by hosting week-long special programming and events capped by exclusive director’s cut airings of the CMT Music Awards later on CMT and various ViacomCBS platforms.
ViacomCBS recently announced that the CMT Music Awards show would move to the television network from CMT on the heels of this year’s success.
CMT said that in June, the country music awards show saw more than a 10 percent increase in viewership and dominated as the No. 1 social program across all television channels for the night.
Across the six ViacomCBS network simulcast, P18-34 ratings saw a 32 percent increase over last year’s event, according to Nielsen Early Ratings.
