A week ago, it was announced that the 2022 CMT Awards will be moving to network TV and airing on CBS! The fan voted show now has a date to air on CBS! This new and improved night of music and awards will now air on April 3, live from Nashville.
The 2021 ceremony saw a 10 percent increase in total viewers and the parent company of CMT, ViacomCBS, took note. This is why the event will be moved over to CBS next year and this will potentially boost the reach to new fans even more.
Thankfully, CMT will still be a major part of this award show. The week preceding the Award show will be known as “Country Music Week” on CMT, including special programing and even exclusive director’s cut airings of the CMT Music Awards, which will broadcast after the live show on CMT and other ViacomCBS platforms.
