Brown has hosted before. He will also be performing a few of his fan-favorite songs. The award show will be hosted at the Moody Center in Austin, Texas this year. Kane and his wife Katelyn will perform their hit single “Thank God” together for the first time.

The country singer is also dipping his toe into acting. On April 7th, his debut role will air on the CBS series Fire Country. His character, Robin, is described as an “enigmatic, modern-day train hopper who helps injured patients on the scene of a crash.”

In the music world, Brown is releasing a new album in September titled Different Man. The tour for the album will begin in March.

Kelsea Ballerini has hosted the CMTs for the third year in a row. Viewers seem to love her pop flair and sweet, country charm. Carrie Underwood is among the other performers.

The executive producers of the award show: John Hamlin, Jason Owen, Margaret Comeaux, and Leslie Fram released a statement expressing their excitement for the show. 

Both Austin and Nashville are two of the world’s greatest music cities and we couldn’t be more excited to announce the return of the CMT Music Awards on CBS than with co-host Kelsea Ballerini surprising Carrie Underwood, our most awarded artist, in the middle of her incredible live performance at Moody Center – the exact venue where we’ll all be back exactly five months from today!”

“Our fans are in for an unforgettable night of music with plenty of surprises,” they shared, “as the Live Music Capital meets Music City for the first time ever on a national stage in what will be a true country music extravaganza.”
