The CMT Music Awards‘ lineup just became even more star-studded than it was before!
Usually the CMT Music Awards take place in the summer the same week as CMA Fest in Nashville. But due to the current world environment, CMA Fest was cancelled and the CMT Music Awards were postponed.
Thankfully, the CMT Music Awards are able to proceed on their new date…October 21.
Weeks ago, CMT named a few artists who will be performing during the ceremony. That initial batch of performers included Kane Brown, Luke Bryan, Dan + Shay, Ashley McBryde, Maren Morris, Little Big Town, Riley Green, Mickey Guyton, Caylee Hammack, Hardy, Ingrid Andress, and Travis Denning.
Now, even more performers have been added to the roster!
On Wednesday (October 14), it was announced that Gabby Barrett, Sam Hunt, and Morgan Wallen will also be performing during the CMT Music Awards. In addition, it was revealed that Shania Twain will be singing during the Awards for the first time since 2011.

Anyone who has tuned in to the CMT Music Awards before knows that it usually serves as the show to catch unforgettable collaborations. Some of those collaborations were also announced in this new batch of performers.
Another collaboration y’all can’t miss will be between Luke Combs and Brooks & Dunn. The two sang “Brand New Man” for Brooks & Dunn’s Reboot album last year, so it seems likely that’s what they’ll perform at the CMT Music Awards.
To get an idea of what that performance would be like, check out the below video of Combs singing “Brand New Man” with Brooks & Dunn for Crossroads.
Who are you most excited to see perform on the CMT Music Awards this year?
