The 2020 CMT Music Awards hosts have been revealed— well, partially! Country music star Kane Brown and Modern Family actress Sarah Hyland will be hosting alongside two additional co-hosts. The next two hosts will be announced in the days leading up to the October 21st event.
“From our first conversations about this year’s show, we knew we wanted multiple hosts who reflected both our artists and our audience,” the show’s producers shared. “Kane and Sarah are young stars on momentous career rolls: Sarah is an award-winning, sought-after Hollywood actor who’s been a familiar face to millions of TV households for over 10 years; and Kane is a self-made success story who has skyrocketed to country music fame by crossing musical genres and delivering history-making hits. We’re thrilled to welcome them both to their first-time hosting duties at the CMT Music Awards.”
Brown is honored to be one of the hosts “The CMT Music Awards have always been about bringing the fans and their favorite artists together to celebrate. I have so many great memories of the show — from watching as a fan at home to accepting my first industry award win on the CMT stage,” Brown said. “I‘m excited to join this year as a first-time host and can’t wait for everyone to see the amazing performances that are lined up this year.”
The country music singer-songwriter is also slated as a performer alongside Ashley McBryde, Dan + Shay, Little Big Town, Luke Bryan, Maren Morris, Caylee Hammack, HARDY, Ingrid Andress, Mickey Guyton, Riley Green, and Travis Denning.
