What’s Worth Watching: Country’s Biggest Stars Shine at the CMT Music Awards
2015 CMT Music Awards (Wednesday, June 10, 8/7c, CMT)
This year’s CMT Music Awards are certain to feel a little different, given the absence of the effortlessly lovable Kristen Bell, who hosted the show the last three years. But the country channel’s hoping its found two new hosts with the most, in the form of Dancing With the Stars‘ Erin Andrews and—aca-scuse me?—Pitch Perfect star Brittany Snow.
Of course, the real stars of the night will be the performers. The three acts with the most nominations, Carrie Underwood, Kenny Chesney and Lady Antebellum, are all set to show off their stuff, as well as heavyweights like Luke Bryan, Sam Hunt, and Eric Church. Up-and-coming acts will also get their turn in the spotlight, with performances from Kelsea Ballerini, Maddie and Tae, A Thousand Horses, and more. Perhaps most exciting, though, is the news that American Idol judge Keith Urban will also debut a new song, “John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16.” Who doesn’t love a good John?
