CMT recently launched “CMT Headliners with Cody Alan,” a new multi-platform, live event series hosted by CMT’s Cody Alan, where fans can submit questions to their favorite country stars and watch them perform from some of the hottest spots in Nashville. To kick-off the inaugural event, Alan welcomed Jason Aldean as his first guest last week where they broadcast live from Jason Aldean’s Kitchen + Rooftop Bar in downtown Nashville.

In addition to chatting about Aldean’s favorite menu items from his new restaurant and how he likes to spend time with his family, the superstar also performed songs from his catalogue of hits including “My Kinda Party,” “Dirt Road Anthem,” and his latest single, “Drowns the Whiskey.”

Highlights from “CMT Headliners” will be featured across CMT’s linear, radio and digital spaces including “CMT Hot 20 Countdown,” “CMT After MidNite” and “CMT Radio Live” with Cody Alan, CMT.com and CMT’s social platforms. “CMT Headliners” will be featured on “CMT After MidNite” and “CMT Radio Live” this Friday, Aug. 17, and on “CMT Hot 20 Countdown,” which will be co-hosted by Aldean, this Saturday, Aug. 18 at 9 a.m. ET/PT (encore presentation Sunday, Aug. 19 at 9 a.m. ET/PT).
