Originally scheduled to air on April 3, the change in date for the Grammy Awards led the CMT Awards being pushed back to the later date in April.

The 2022 CMT Music Awards are right around the corner, and after the change of date as well as host and nominations announcements, we finally know who will be performing too!

Miranda Lambert, Keith Urban, Maren Morris and Ryan Hurd, Little Big Town, Kane Brown, Carly Pearce, Cole Swindell and Lainey Wilson, Cody Johnson, and Kelsea Ballerini, who is hosting the show with Anthony Mackie, will all perform at the 2022 CMT Music Awards.

Luke Combs, who was previously announced, will no longer perform since contracting COVID-19.

“Unfortunately, Luke Combs won’t be with us tomorrow,” a spokesperson from CMT confirmed to multiple publications. “He is quarantined with COVID. He’s bummed to miss seeing everyone!”

Combs was scheduled to tape his CMT Music Awards performance in advance of the show alongside Brown. According to an email from 1iota, a company fulfilling tickets for the performance, Old Dominion will be filling in for Combs. 

“In Luke’s absence, Old Dominion will join Kane Brown for special musical performances for a TV taping,” the email to participants states.
