Date Announced For CMT Music Awards

CMT announced on Thursday (April 29) that this year’s CMT Music Awards show will air from Nashville on June 9 at 8 p.m. ET/7 p.m. CT.

According to the channel, the CMT Music Awards, billed as “Country Music’s only entirely fan-voted award show,” will run for two-and-a-half hours, providing performances and unique collaborations, in addition to presentation of awards to the top music videos of the year. Simulcast networks will be announced at a later date.

In a statement, CMT said this year’s show would be shot “in and around Music City.” The show organizers will announce the lineup of performers and presenters at a later date.

Carrie Underwood, who holds the record for the most CMT Music Awards (22), hogged the limelight at the awards last year, winning the Video of the Year and Female Video of the Year honors for “Drinking Alone.” Last year’s show was hosted by Kane Brown, Sarah Hyland and Ashley McBryde.
