CMT revealed the honorees for its 2021 CMT Artists Of The Year special, taking place on Oct. 13. The premier country artists to be celebrated are Chris Stapleton, Gabby Barrett, Kane Brown, Kelsea Ballerini and Luke Combs.
This year’s CMT Artists of the Year event will honor the top five country artists who, in the last 12 months, led across all CMT platforms, scored chart-topping albums and singles, and created ways to connect with fans and meet the personal and professional challenges posed by the pandemic.
Margaret Comeaux, Vice President, Production, CMT says: “’We are honored to recognize these five incredible artists who have entertained and inspired millions through their music this past year. We look forward to returning to the Schermerhorn with a live show as we celebrate the accomplishments of Chris, Kane, Kelsea, Gabby and Luke.”
The 90-minute CMT Artists Of The Year special will broadcast live from Nashville’s Schermerhorn Symphony Center on Wednesday, Oct. 13 at 8 p.m. CT. Musical pairings, special guests, additional honorees, performers and presenters will be announced in the coming weeks.
