CMT has revealed its executive team responsible for the 2022 CMT Music Awards, as the show makes its global premiere on CBS. Margaret Comeaux (CMT), John Hamlin (Switched On Entertainment) and Leslie Fram (CMT) will all serve as Executive Producers of country’s only entirely fan-voted award show. The CMT Music Awards will air live on Sunday, April 3, 2022 at 7 p.m. CT exclusively on CBS, and will be available to stream live and on demand on Paramount+.
The upcoming telecast marks the 14th year Comeaux and Hamlin have been at the center of ViacomCBS’ signature show and the 10th consecutive year for Fram. Also included as the executive team is Amy Lin Johnson (Co-Executive Producer), Jackie Barba and Heather D. Graffagnino (Executives in Charge of Production), and Shanna Strassberg and Taryn Hurd (Talent Producers).
“On behalf of the entire production team at CMT, many of whom have worked together for decades, we’re thrilled to bring the 2022 CMT Music Awards to CBS LIVE from Nashville,” says Comeaux. “Every year, we strive to deliver the most exciting, unexpected musical event on television and we look forward to elevating that one-of-a-kind experience within our ViacomCBS family.”
Earlier this year, ViacomCBS announced the 2022 CMT Music Awards would premiere on CBS for the first time. This past June, the 2021 show saw more than a 10% increase in total viewers and dominated as the No. 1 most social program across all of TV for the night. Additionally, the company announced it would be kicking off its inaugural Country Music Week with special programming and events in the lead-up to the show’s inaugural CBS broadcast.
Celebrated for its cross-genre performances, the CMT Music Awards have been on air since 2005. The 2021 show, hosted by Kelsea Ballerini and Kane Brown, featured the most ever first-time collaborations and blended-genre pairings in the show’s history.
