Earlier this month CMT revealed nominations for their awards, which includes more than 45 nominated artists/groups. Carrie Underwood is the frontrunner with five awards nominations. Kenny Chesney follows with an impressive four nominations.
To celebrate the upcoming performances, CMT will be airing nominee videos during morning music hours, while CMT Pure, CMT’s 24-hour music channel, will feature nomination blocks by category throughout the day. In addition, CMT Radio will feature performer interviews on both CMT After Midnite and CMT Radio Live.
Fans can vote now via CMT.com through June 7 at 11:59 p.m. ET to determine the winners. The six finalists for video of the year will be announced at the beginning of the live show and fans can then vote at CMT.com throughout the live telecast (ET/CT only) to determine the night’s big winner.
Dancing With the Stars co-host Erin Andrews and Pitch Perfect star Brittany Snow will co-host the show that has become known as the loudest night in country music.
