UPDATE: On Oct. 16, CMT announced that Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter Ashley McBryde will also serve as a host for the 2020 CMT Music Awards.
“I am beyond excited, and maybe a little nervous, to host an awards show for the very first time,” the country singer shared in a statement. “Luckily, it’s not all about me—it’s about celebrating bad ass music videos and the brilliant men and women that help us create them. I’ve loved watching and being part of this event in the past and I think the fans are really going to enjoy what we have planned for them. It’s going to be a blast!”
Country music fans have another big reason to watch the 2020 CMT Music Awards.
In a first for CMT, a total of four individual hosts will take the star-studded stage on Oct. 21. Two additional hosts are expected to be revealed closer to air date.
When the announcement was made public, Kane couldn’t help but share his excitement.
“The CMT Music Awards have always been about bringing the fans and their favorite artists together to celebrate,” the “Cool Again” singer shared in a statement. “I have so many great memories of the show-from watching as a fan at home to accepting my first industry award win on the CMT stage. I‘m excited to join this year as a first-time host and can’t wait for everyone to see the amazing performances that are lined up this year.”
