Some may be surprised to learn that only seven awards are given out during the annual CMT Music Awards.
Among those to team up will be Carrie Underwood and NEEDTOBREATHE, Brothers Osborne and Dierks Bentley, Lauren Alaina and Jon Pardi and more.
Additionally, 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, and Jack Ingram and Jon Randall are among the others that will share the stage.
