CMT have revealed that Nashville’s very own Deacon Claybourne aka Charles Esten, will host this year’s CMT awards on June 7th, just days before the cast come over to the UK for Nashville In Concert – first date being June 9th in Birmingham. The actor took to twitter to announce the news in a very Nashville fashion.
A number of performers have also been announced. Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert are among the few who have been revealed so far. Also performing are Brett Eldredge and Thomas Rhett. Will we get more new music previews from either?? We can but hope!
Nominations will be announced May 9th and voting will be open until just two days before the show.
More performers and presenters should be announced in the coming weeks!
FGL are nominated for 5 ACMs and have received 2 awards before tonight’s broadcast. The vocal duo take home the awards for Single of the Year for “H.O.L.Y” and Vocal Event of the Year for “May We All” ft. Tim McGraw.

Tonight we’ll see whether they can hold onto their title of Vocal Duo of the Year as they have the past 3 years. I believe this year there is tough competition.
The duo are also up for Entertainer of the Year and Album of the Year for Dig Your Roots.
Although we still don’t have a date for the new album, it is if nothing else, a confirmation that the wait is almost over. I am beyond excited to hear the new music and can’t wait for it’s release to get it on repeat.
