Matt Roush says...

 Kelsea Ballerini hosts the celebration of country’s best from Austin for the fourth consecutive year, featuring an emotional all-star tribute to Toby Keith, who passed away from cancer in February at 62. A friend of CMT, who performed 10 years in a row at this ceremony and co-hosted twice, the musical salute to Keith includes Brooks & Dunn, Lainey Wilson and Sammy Hagar, backed by Keith’s own band, with appearances by Lukas Nelson and Roger Clemons. Other highlights: Trisha Yearwood takes home the first June Carter Cash Humanitarian Award and performs a world-premiere song, Little Big Town and Sugarland collaborate on another world premiere, and the talent lineup includes Ballerini, Keith Urban, Old Dominion, Jelly Roll, Cody Johnson, Bailey Zimmerman, Megan Moroney, Sam Hunt, NEEDTOBREATHE and Jordan Davis.
