2012 CMT Music Awards Performers Announced
It’s a star-studded lineup for the 2012 CMT Music Awards, which will take place June 6 in Nashville. Carrie Underwood, Lady Antebellum, Brad Paisley, Kenny Chesney and Zac Brown Band are the first round of performers confirmed for the live broadcast. They join Little Big Town, whose slot was announced during the nominations ceremony last month.
Carrie leads the way with five nods for the evening. She’s up twice for the night’s top honor, Video of the Year; once for “Good Girl” and another for her collaboration with Brad Paisley, “Remind Me.” Lady Antebellum is also recognized in the category for “We Owned the Night,” as is Kenny for his duet with Grace Potter, “You and Tequila.”
They face off against Miranda Lambert‘s “Over You,” Rascal Flatts‘ “Easy” with Natasha Bedingfield, Blake Shelton‘s “God Gave Me You,” Taylor Swift‘s “Safe & Sound” with the Civil Wars, Jason Aldean‘s “Dirt Road Anthem” and Toby Keith‘s “Red Solo Cup.”
All categories are fan-voted. You can cast your votes at CMT.com until June 4. The final five nominees for the Video of the Year category will be announced at the beginning of the telecast. Get a full list of nominees here.
