CMT have revealed that Nashville’s very own Deacon Claybourne aka Charles Esten, will host this year’s CMT awards on June 7th, just days before the cast come over to the UK for Nashville In Concert – first date being June 9th in Birmingham. The actor took to twitter to announce the news in a very Nashville fashion.
A number of performers have also been announced. Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert are among the few who have been revealed so far. Also performing are Brett Eldredge and Thomas Rhett. Will we get more new music previews from either?? We can but hope!
Nominations will be announced May 9th and voting will be open until just two days before the show.
More performers and presenters should be announced in the coming weeks!
