With the CMT Music Awards fast approaching, we finally get to know who will perform during this year’s award show. 

CMT has confirmed that taking the stage at the fan-voted awards show for country music videos and television performances are Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson, Chris Stapleton, Kelsea Ballerini, Luke Bryan, and Sam Hunt. 

This star-studded lineup isn’t the end of it as CMT announced that additional artists are slated to perform at this year’s show. 

Little Big Town will host the 2018 awards show, that will also feature American Idol winner and The Voice judge, Kelly Clarkson, on her CMT Music Awards debut singing her rendition to the rock hit “American Woman.”

Nominees for the awards show were revealed earlier this month. Coming into the night with the highest number of nominations are Carrie Underwood, Florida Georgia L, ne and Jason Aldean, with four nominations each. Host Little Big Town, Chris Stapleton, Lauren Alaina and Thomas Rhett follow closely with two nods each.

Underwood still holds the record for most CMT Music Awards wins, a total of 17. 

The event will be broadcast live from Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on June 6.
