Country fans will get a big dose of music when the 2019 CMT Music Awards air live from Music City on June 5. This year’s show will be a record-breaking one for the network as more performances than ever will happen during the telecast.
The first round of performers taking the stage will be Carrie Underwood, Dan + Shay, Kane Brown, Kelsea Ballerini, Luke Bryan, Maren Morris, Thomas Rhett, and with more to be announced in the coming weeks.
Each of the artists slated to take the stage are among this year’s nominees.
