CMT has announced CMT ARTISTS OF THE YEAR, a 90-minute special featuring Country music’s top artists and celebrities from entertainment, will premiere on FRIDAY, DECEMBER 3rd on CMT. The event will include performances and tributes. Performers and a host will be announced at a later date.
CMT ARTISTS OF THE YEAR will recognize five of the year’s top acts based on album and download sales, radio airplay, online activity and touring. It is set to be taped in NASHVILLE.
CMT SVP/Music Events and Talent JOHN HAMLIN: “Make no mistake: This is not an awards show or a competition, but a year-end party on a grand scale. CMT ARTISTS OF THE YEAR celebrates the artists that made this year a great one for Country music. It's their night because it's been their year and they deserve to be wined, dined and entertained like no other evening anywhere else.”
