The 2017 CMT Music Awards are set for June 7th at 8 pm and the first set of performers have just been announced. Blake Shelton, Brett Eldredge, Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert and Thomas Rhett are confirmed to perform at the ceremony, with more performers and presenters to be added soon.
Nashville’s Charles Esten will host the fan-voted awards show, and he’s certainly excited about the job.
“Everybody knows that CMT has a special connection with country music and the incredible fans that love it so much,” Esten shares. “Besides always being flat-out fun, it’s also always been a stage for magical musical moments — and a place where some of country’s biggest legends have been made. I’m thrilled and honored to get to host this great event.”
Nominees for this year’s awards will be announced May 9th.
