Don’t forget to come back to CountryMusicIsLove tonight as we’ll have full coverage of the CMT Music Awards! We’ll be hosting a live chat right here on the site for everyone to join in – we do them during every awards show and it’s always a great time! We’ll also be blogging live from backstage at the awards throughout the show! Our live chat will begin here at 7pm ET – the same time that the Red Carpet special starts airing which will be hosted by Katie Cook and Lance Smith.
There are lots of last minute reports buzzing through Nashville about tonight’s show! Jason Aldean is said to be having a special guest joining him for his performance, Taylor Swift is said to be opening the show with a skit as well as performing twice throughout the night, and Toby Keith, Heidi Newfield, Alison Krauss, and Kellie Pickler have all been added as presenters for the show. One superstar who has confirmed that she won’t be in attendance tonight is Carrie Underwood, who is on a quick vacation to celebrate her Mom’s birthday.
Make sure to come on back here beginning at 7pm for a night full of great country music!
