The 2022 CMT Music Awards were held on Monday (April 11). Kelsea Ballerini and Anthony Mackie served as the hosts of the ceremony.
Unlike other country awards shows, the CMT Music Awards are all fan-voted. The awards also focus on honoring performances and music videos, rather than albums, artists, and songs.
One of the biggest awards anyone can win at the CMT Music Awards is the award for Female Video of the Year. This year’s nominees were…
- Brandi Carlile – “Right on Time”
- Gabby Barrett – “Footprints on the Moon”
- Kacey Musgraves – “justified”
- Maren Morris – “Circles Around This Town”
- Mickey Guyton – “Remember Her Name”
- Miranda Lambert – “If I Was a Cowboy”
- Tenille Arts – “Back Then, Right Now”
Carrie Underwood holds the record for the most victories in the Female Video of the Year category, with a total of eight wins to her name. Gabby Barrett is the reigning winner after the music video for “The Good Ones” won last year.
