The CMT Artist of the Year special goes down Wednesday in Nashville, and the network just announced the artists confirmed to perform this year.
In addition to solo performances from this year’s honorees, Gabby Barrett, Kane Brown, and Luke Combs, honoree Kelsea Ballerini will perform with the Jonas Brothers remotely from the band’s “Remember This” Tour. This year’s remaining Artist of the Year honoree Chris Stapleton will be celebrated with a never-before-seen collaboration between Boyz II Men and Pentatonix’s Kevin Olosula.
But that’s not all. Mickey Guyton, this year’s Breakout Artist of the Year, will team with Yola on stage, and Walker Hayes will treat fans to the first-ever award show performance of his smash hit “Fancy Like.”
CMT’s 2021 Artist of the Year special airs Wednesday at 9 pm from Nashville’s Schermerhorn Symphony Center.
