I’m sorry, but the CMT Music Awards are always the biggest snoozefest of any country music awards show.

That’s just the way it is…

I mean, does CMT even play music videos anymore? Every time I pull up the guide, it’s just 24 straight hours of re-run television shows like Mike & Molly, Last Man Standing, and King of Queens.

Here’s today’s riveting programing schedule on Country Music Television:

The fan-voted show focuses solely on music videos, and is slated to air Monday, April 11th on CBS and Paramount+.

Airing live from Nashville, this year’s ceremony will be hosted by Kelsea Ballerini and Anthony Mackie.

The nominees for the 2022 CMT Music Awards were announced today, with Kane Brown leading the way with four nominations. Kelsea Ballerini, Mickey Guyton, Breland, and Cody Johnson have three.

But if you’re interested… the nominees are:
