Kane Brown is set to return as co-host of the 2023 CMT Music Awards alongside Kelsea Ballerini, for Austin’s first major televised awards airing live from Moody Center on April 2 on CBS.
Brown, who was the most-nominated artist for the 2022 CMT Music Awards, will also perform during the show, teaming with wife Katelyn Brown for the broadcast world premiere of their multi-week No. 1 hit, “Thank God.” The history-making duet has over 210 million streams and cements the Browns as only the second married couple in country music history to earn a No. 1 on both the Billboard and Aircheck charts.
The CMT Music Awards, country’s only entirely fan-voted award show, will also be available to stream live and on demand on Paramount+. Paramount+ Premium subscribers will have access to stream live via the live feed of their local CBS affiliate on the service as well as on demand. Essential-tier subscribers will have access to on-demand the day after the special airs.
Following the awards, Brown will make his acting debut on the new drama Fire Country on April 7 on CBS and Paramount+. Brown portrays Robin, an enigmatic, train-hopping outlaw on the run who helps injured patients on the scene of a crash in the episode.
“As soon as Kane stepped onto set it felt like he had been a part of the Fire Country family from the beginning,” shares series star and creator, Max Thieriot. “I was really blown away by how natural and honest he is in each scene. To top it off he’s just a wonderful person—kind, excited to learn and fun to be around… dude is the real deal!”
Brown’s most recent album, Different Man, includes the Platinum No. 1 single “One Mississippi,” and “Like I Love Country Music” which is his fastest rising No. 1 in the U.S. while also topping the Australian Country Radio chart and landing at No. 1 for 7 consecutive weeks at Canadian Country Radio. His most recent single “Thank God,” featuring wife Katelyn, has accumulated over 10 million streams in the first week, a career high for Brown.
