The 2024 CMT Music Awards are heading back to Austin's Moody Center, and set to air live on Sunday, April 7 on CBS and streaming live on Paramount+ with SHOWTIME.
It's now been confirmed that Kelsea Ballerini will be returning as host for the fourth consecutive year, and fans will no doubt be hoping she performs during the ceremony too.
Beginning at 8pm ET, the three hour broadcast will celebrate the best videos in country music in the last year and will feature its signature show stopping performances and collaborations.
The CMTs enjoyed a record-setting year in 2023 as the broadcast reached 6.18 million viewers.
The ceremony, hosted by country darlings Kelsea Ballerini and Kane Brown, also saw several stellar performances from country's big hitters, including Jelly Roll, Lainey Wilson, Blake Shelton, Carly Pearce, Cody Johnson and more.
Marking his first-ever CMT Awards ceremony, country-rap prodigy Jelly Roll won his first ever CMT Award for Digital-First Performance of the Year, as well as his second and third awards for Breakthrough Male Video of the Year and Male Video of the Year.
Other big winners included Wilson, who was awarded Female Video of the Year (‘Heart Like A Truck’) and Collaborative Video of the Year alongside HARDY (‘Wait in the Truck’), as well as Cody Johnson (Performance of the Year), Kane and Katelyn Brown (Video of the Year) and Megan Moroney (Breakthrough Female Video of the Year), among others.
