CMT is once again set to honor today’s hottest country stars. The network announced that their annual “Artists of the Year” event will take place October 13th at Nashville’s Schermerhorn Symphony Center.
The event honors the “top five country artists who collectively ruled the last 12 months in country music…scoring chart-topping albums and singles while simultaneously finding creative ways to connect with fans and meet the personal and professional challenges posed by the pandemic.”
Last year the Artist of the Year ceremony was shifted instead to honor Americans on the frontlines during the pandemic. Winners in 2019 included Carrie Underwood, Dan + Shay, Kane Brown, Luke Combs, and Thomas Rhett.
