Charles Esten,
Deacon Clyabourne on “Nashville,” is set to host the fan-voted
2017 CMT Music Music Awards, live form Nashville on June 7 at 8:00pm ET/PT.

“Everybody knows that CMT has a special connection with country music and the incredible fans that love it so much,” said
Charles Esten. “That connection is why our show, ‘Nashville,’ now has a perfect home on the network. It’s also why there is no other show quite like the CMT Music Awards. It’s a show fully dedicated to the fans and an annual chance for them to place their votes for their favorite artists. Besides always being flat-out fun, it’s also always been a stage for magical musical moments – and a place where some of country’s biggest legends have been made. I’m thrilled and honored to get to host this great event.”

Blake Shelton, Brett Eldredge, Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert and Thomas Rhett are already set to perform.

Nominations will be announced on Tuesday, May 9, with voting starting that same day on CMT.com.
