Airing April 11 on CBS and Paramount+, this year’s show will be co-hosted by Kelsea Ballerini and actor Anthony Mackie, and already boasts a stacked lineup of previously announced superstar performers. But Underwood’s appearance will be a special treat.
Performing from Las Vegas’ Resorts World Theatre where her REFLECTION: The Las Vegas Residency takes place, Underwood’s CMT Music Awards song figures to be filled with theatrical thrills — and even more fantastic wardrobe than usual — giving viewers a sneak peak at her spectacular Vegas production.
Meanwhile, Mickey Guyton and Black Pumas have also been added to the show for a “world premiere collaboration,” and hit makers Old Dominion will take the stage as well. Plus, the finalists for the night’s top prize, Video of the Year, have been revealed.
After a first round of fan voting, the six final Video of the Year nominees are:
- Jason Aldean & Carrie Underwood – “If I Didn’t Love You”
- Kane Brown – “One Mississippi”
- Kelsea Ballerini feat. Kenny Chesney – “half of my hometown”
- Luke Combs - “Forever After All”
- Cody Johnson – “Til You Can’t”
- Cole Swindell & Lainey Wilson - “Never Say Never”
Fan voting for all categories is now open, and other performers will include Kelsea Ballerini, Kane Brown, Cody Johnson, Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town, Maren Morris + Ryan Hurd, Carly Pearce, Cole Swindell + Lainey Wilson and Keith Urban.
The 2022 CMT Music Awards will air LIVE from Nashville on Monday, April 11th at 8 p.m. ET on CBS and Paramount+.
