October 21, 2014 at 9:10 AM (PT)
During the past year, the five honorees have impacted Country music through radio airplay, chart-topping album sales, and millions of individual downloads of their singles. The five have also packed areas on sold-out concert tours, and they have collectively generated hundreds of millions of video streams on the road to being named the CMT Artists of the Year.
"Country music has never been bigger, and these five are its biggest stars of 2014," stated CMT SVP/Music Events & Talent JOHN HAMLIN. "We do everything we can do to make sure this is the party of the year for them. And rightfully so. They've earned it."
The "CMT Artists of the Year" special will broadcast live from NASHVILLE on TUESDAY, DECEMBER 2nd at 8p (ET).
