Following the Tamworth Country Music Festival Golden Guitar Awards being rescheduled, the CMT Awards have also been postponed.
[EDITOR'S NOTE: The CMT Awards will now take place on Monday, April 11. CMT Music Awards executive producers Margaret Comeaux, John Hamlin and Leslie Fram shared, “It’s official: Our three-hour Nashville extravaganza will be LIVE on CBS on April 11 for the first time as part of the Network’s biggest month of music ever. Expect the most unforgettable CMT Music Awards yet, jam-packed with the most star-power, world premiere performances and one-of-a-kind collaborations from in and around Music City.”]
Originally scheduled to air on April 3, the change in date for the 64th annual Grammy Awards, due to a surge in COVID-19 cases, has led the CMT Awards to be pushed back to a later date in April. The date and location of the show will be announced in the coming weeks.
“Once we realised the need to move the Grammy Awards to a later date due to current health concerns, we came together quickly with our partners at the Recording Academy and CMT, to strategically reschedule these two incredible music events and utilize the full power of the ViacomCBS ecosystem to promote them,” said Jack Sussman, Executive Vice President, Specials, Music, Live Events & Alternative Programming, CBS.
