Tonight marks the annual CMT Music Awards on CBS and YouTube TV, DIRECTV Stream, fuboTV, and Hulu + Live TV are also offering streaming.

CMT Awards

The CMT Music Awards is an annual fan-voted four-category music award show hosted by country stars. Broadcasted live on CBS and streamed live via Paramount+, these fan-voted awards began their inaugural show back in 1967 and remain one of the longest running musical programs on network TV today – often called MTV of country music for their emphasis on videos as well as songs. As with the CMAs, but without as many serious performers.

Over the years, numerous iconic country stars have won multiple CMT Awards – such as The Judds, Taylor Swift, Dwight Yoakam and Jennifer Nettles. Some memorable moments of these shows included heartwarming acceptance speeches and breathtaking musical performances; there was some questionable behavior at its beginnings but that now seems to have subsided.

Kelsea Ballerini hosted the 2024 CMT Music Awards, bringing out many of country music’s biggest names as performers, such as Melissa Etheridge for a duet of “Come to My Window”. Trisha Yearwood won the inaugural June Carter Cash Humanitarian Award and performed during this event; other performers included Sam Hunt, Cody Johnson, Jelly Roll, Lainey Wilson Megan Moroney Brittney Spencer Parker McCollum Old Dominion among many more.

Though not as high-profile as the CMAs, CMTs remain an integral part of country music culture and offer fans a special glimpse into genre culture as well as seeing some of their favorite artists perform in new light. Furthermore, viewers get to watch some of their favorites compete head to head against each other during musical battles on this show.

The CMT Awards share many similarities with MTV Video Music Awards, but with less pyrotechnics (for safety purposes). Shows usually take place in a large arena or theater and feature multiple performances by various artists as well as comedic skits that keep audiences laughing throughout the night.

CMA Awards

The Country Music Awards is an annual ceremony that recognizes and rewards country artists and songwriters for their outstanding achievements in country music since 1967, airing live on ABC. Since its inaugural ceremony held at Ryman Auditorium and Grand Ole Opry in Nashville.

The CMA Awards is an elegant event that recognizes and rewards excellence in country music. Aside from awarding entertainer of the year, there are multiple other categories honoring individual artists and groups; winners are determined by members of the Country Music Association–an industry trade body dedicated to furthering country music.

Usually, the CMA Awards are an enjoyable evening full of music and celebration. But like any live televised event, things can quickly go off track; from Charlie Rich protesting pop-country’s influence on country to Reba McEntire wearing her trademark red dress at one point during an awards show; there have been plenty of memorable moments at past CMA ceremonies that made headlines.

The 2017 CMAs were somewhat contentious, with hosts Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood taking aim at political figures like Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton with jokes that were mostly even-handed but proved uncomfortable for fans who expected an evening that celebrates country music instead.

However, it’s important to keep in mind that the CMAs aren’t just about music – they also serve as an important public relations opportunity for country music. They serve as an introduction for those not part of country’s close-knit family to watch how its evolution has taken shape over time; Kid Rock and Sheryl Crow’s appearances at this year’s CMAs were an affirmation that country can encompass artists who began their careers elsewhere such as rock or punk music.

This year’s CMA Awards will take place on November 8 at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena and be hosted by Luke Bryan and Peyton Manning, with counting down starting on November 5 at 7 pm ET. Lainey Wilson leads with nine nominations followed by Jelly Roll, Cody Johnson Jordan Davis and Ashley McBryde as other leading candidates.
