More performers have been announced to take the stage at the 2023 CMT Music Awards, as co-hosted by Kane Brown and Kelsea Ballerini from Austin, Texas’ Moody Center on Sunday, April 2.

The Black Crowes will team up with ‘CMT Performance of the Year’ nominee and long-time friend Darius Rucker for a world premiere collaboration of the band’s hit, She Talks to Angels.

The performance comes on the heels of their just-announced CMT Crossroads which will tape in front of an outdoor crowd in downtown Austin as part of CMT Music Awards Week.

3x nominated genre-bending singer-songwriter Jelly Roll will continue to add to his breakout year with his first-ever award show performance of hit single Need A Favor. He also looks to take home his first major award, with nominations in ‘Male Video of the Year,’ ‘Breakthrough Male Video of the Year’ and ‘CMT Digital-First Performance of the Year’ categories.

Meanwhile, Tyler Hubbard sets his first ever solo awards performance with hit song, Dancin’ In The Country, off his recent self-titled, debut solo album. The performance comes a decade after Hubbard’s debut on the CMT Music Awards stage with Nelly as part of Florida Georgia Line.

Wynonna returns to the CMT stage following last year’s unforgettable final performance of Love Can Build A Bridge with her mother, the late Naomi Judd, for which they both earn first-time nods for ‘CMT Performance of the Year.’ This year, Wynonna teams up with recent tourmate and ‘Video of the Year’ nominee Ashley McBryde for a debut television performance.
