I know many people look forward to arriving early every year for the CMA Music Festival in order to attend the awards, but that will not be happening in 2022.
From the CMT web-site:
"‘CMT Music Awards’ To Air April 3, 2022 on CBSViacomCBS recently announced that its signature country music tentpole would move to CBS from CMT.
CBS announced today it will present its inaugural broadcast of the CMT MUSIC AWARDS live from Nashville on Sunday, April 3, 2022 (8:00-11:00 PM, LIVE ET/delayed PT). CMT will kick off the company’s first ever Country Music Week by hosting week-long special programming and events capped by exclusive director’s cut airings of the CMT MUSIC AWARDS later on CMT and various ViacomCBS platforms.
ViacomCBS recently announced that its signature country music tentpole would move to CBS from CMT on the heels of this year’s success. This past June, the CMT MUSIC AWARDS saw more than a 10% increase in total viewers and dominated as the #1 most social program across all of television for the night."
