She’s commanding EVERYTHING these days! Whether it’s the stage of the Grand Ole Opry, where she’s been a member for almost two years or putting her pen to hit songs and her recently released poetry collection, Kelsea Ballerini is a creative force. Up next for the multi-platinum superstar is her return as host of the 2022 CMT Music Awards! Actor Anthony Mackie joins in on all the countrified fun; he’ll make his debut as co-host of country music’s only entirely fan-voted award show.
Kelsea says, “I’m thrilled to be returning as host at this year’s CMT Awards with Anthony Mackie! This award show is always a special one, as it revolves around the fans and celebrates their favorite artists. This year is especially cool to be a part of as CMT grows into a network spot and expands for even more fans to get involved. It’s going to be a big one and I can’t wait!”
This year’s show is about to become even bigger! It’ll be broadcast live from Nashville on Monday, April 11, starting at 8:00 pm ET. It’s the first time the show airs on CBS, plus you can stream live and on-demand on Paramount +. So, no excuse for missing out on all those electrifying performances and perfectly paired collabs the show is known for! I’ve attended for the last decade and still can’t get over seeing ZZ TOP with Luke Bryan, FGL, and Jason Derulo or how the Oak Ridge Boys brought down the house by singing with Blake Shelton. Stay tuned to find out who is performing this year. We’ll have all the details on how to vote, too!
