CMT Music Awards 2021: The performers


Some may be surprised to learn that only seven awards are presented during the annual CMT Music Awards.

However, the country’s biggest stars don’t gather for a simple, brief ceremony, but rather an hour-long event crammed with performances by some of the biggest names in the genre.

This year, country stars like Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert and Chris Stapleton will take the stage as many artists join forces in duets.

Among those who will team up will be Carrie Underwood and NEEDTOBREATHE, Brothers Osborne and Dierks Bentley, Lauren Alaina and Jon Pardi, and more.

In addition, Lady A will share the stage with Carly Pearce and Gabby Barrett, while Chris Young and Kane Brown will also perform together. Kelsea Ballerini and Paul Klein from LANY as well as Jack Ingram and Jon Randall will share the stage, among others.
