Get ready to move, Nashville! The 2022 CMT Music Awards are just around the corner, and the line-up is stacked with a roster of some of this year’s nominees and some winners from awards shows past.
Kenny Chesney will close out the show, marking his first return to the CMT stage in seven years. The country crooner will be performing his hit song, "Beers in Mexico."
Chesney is also about to embark on his Here And Now 2022 tour, which kicks off at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida, on April 23. "When you do [music] video right, it’s a lot like hitting the stage with everything you’ve got,” the eight-time Entertainer of the Year said in a press release. “You can give people so much more than a song or a record; you can show them the power and the emotion that’s driving what’s inside the songs. So, for us to come be part of [Monday's CMT Music Awards], it’s bringing who we are during concerts to a place where people have seen so many of these videos. And it’s always great to be able to close down the night!"
Chesney added, "For us, to be part of what will change people’s lives, to show what’s possible and to celebrate how rocking the music is? That’s why we all do what we do. And as everyone knows, my road family and I live by the battle cry -- ‘Who lives like we do? WE DO!’ So, here’s to Monday night, and seeing how live this can be."
The CMT Music Awards is known for bringing some of the best world premiere performances and biggest collaborations and this year is no exception. Jason Aldean and Bryan Adams will perform together, while Jimmie Allen, Monica and Little Big Town will also hit the stage. Additionally, Walker Hayes will perform as well as Thomas Rhett with Riley Green.
But that's not all! Mickey Guyton and Black Pumas will team up for a world premiere collaboration, while two-time CMT Music Awards nominee Old Dominion will also take the stage. And CMT’s most decorated artist of all-time, Carrie Underwood, will deliver a very special all-new performance from the Resorts World Theatre, home of her Las Vegas residency.
Morris will take the stage with her love, Ryan Hurd, while Cole Swindell will be joined by Lainey Wilson for a performance of their fiery duet, “Never Say Never.”
Many of the performers are set to go head-to-head against each other in some of the evening’s fan-voted categories. Brown, Combs, Johnson, Lambert, Morris and Swindell and Wilson are all up for the Video of the Year award. Meanwhile, Pearce, Morris and Lambert will see each other in the Female Video of the Year category.
As for the nominations overall, Brown takes the lead with four nominations, followed by Ballerini, Guyton, Bredland and Cody Johnson with three nods. Additional nominees include Tenille Arts, Priscilla Block, H.E.R., Paul Klein of LANY, MacKenzie Porter, Elvie Shane, Caitlyn Smith and Brittney Spencer.
In addition to performers and nominees, loads of celebs are set to present, including Allen, Barrett, Faith Hill, Isabel May, Rob Corddry, Jordan Davis, Billy F. Gibbons, Gayle King, Taylor Lautner, Dustin Lynch, Martina McBride, Joel McHale, Kacey Musgraves, Bobby Berk, Karamo Brown, Tan France, Antoni Porowski, LeAnn Rimes, Dylan Scott and Dennis Quaid.
