CMT To Honor Reba With Artist Of A Lifetime Award

Reba McEntire is being honored with the Artist of a Lifetime award presented by Ram Trucks at this year’s upcoming CMT Artists of the Year event. The 10th annual celebration will air live from Nashville’s Schermerhorn Symphony Center on Wednesday, Oct. 16 at 8 p.m. ET/PT. 

This year marks a significant milestone for the CMT Artists of the Year special as it celebrates the decade-long anniversary of the live music franchise. The highly anticipated 90-minute event will pay tribute to the five “Artists of the Year” who collectively ruled the last 12 months in country music. This year’s honorees include Carrie Underwood, Dan + Shay, Kane Brown, Luke Combs and Thomas Rhett, and will feature surprise musical pairings and guests. 

“I have loved entertaining people since I was a little girl and after being in the music business more than 40 years, I’m still having so much fun! For CMT to recognize me as the ‘Artist of A Lifetime’ is pretty special,” said Reba.

Other artists who have received the Artist of a Lifetime award include Loretta Lynn (2018), Shania Twain (2016), Kenny Rogers (2015), and Merle Haggard (2014).
