Over a dozen of country music’s top stars performed on the big stage and outside the Bridgestone Arena during the 2012 CMT Music Awards telecast on Wednesday night. It was a fast-paced, high-energy night full of highlights. Even softer songs like Kenny Chesney‘s ‘Come Over’ proved to be can’t-miss television. Which performance was your favorite?
Blake Shelton seems to be working on new music. According to Nashville keyboard player Gordon Mote, Shelton is working on a Christmas album. “Had a great day working on a new @BlakeShelton Christmas album,” Mote tweeted on Wednesday. “He’s pretty fantastic!”
For the second time in less than a month, two rows of fans will go home from an award show picking confetti out of their hair and outfits following a Carrie Underwood performance. At the end of ‘Good Girl’ at the 2012 CMT Music Awards, it rained gold on unsuspecting fans below.
Toby Keith, Zac Brown Band, Jamey Johnson, Darius Rucker and Willie Nelson all have one thing in common: country music (Hey — if there’s something else, we don’t know about it). The country supergroup took the stage halfway through the 2012 CMT Music Awards to perform Nelson’s ‘Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die.’
The Band Perry took the stage like it was built for them at the 2012 CMT Music Awards on Wednesday night. Lead singer Kimberly Perry let her hair down and worked the crowd singing the trio’s current single ‘Postcard From Paris.’ Last year, the group won the Breakthrough Video of the Year belt buckle, but it’s clear they’re on their way to bigger things in years to come.
If the rest of the Zac Brown Band‘s new album is half as fun as ‘The Wind,’ fans are in for a great summer in 2012. The ever-growing country jam band performed their new single live for the first time at the 2012 CMT Music Awards on Wednesday night, and proved why they belong in discussions about country music’s top musicians.
Toby Keith and actress Kristen Bell eventually took the stage to host the 2012 CMT Music Awards, but if you followed the opening moments of the show, you learned it wasn’t easy for them to get along. The two spent time campaigning to host the show themselves in a pre-taped video segment that featured cameos from President Obama, Mitt Romney, Bon Jovi, Willie Nelson, Mario Lopez and more.
President Barack Obama and presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney will appear at tonight’s 2012 CMT Music Awards. Each is part of a comedic pre-taped video that will open the show, much the way the President, John McCain and Hillary Clinton did in 2008.
Every once in awhile, an artist like Miranda Lambert needs to remind the country music community what crazy looks like. All this talk of marriage, babies and puppy dogs could have left some (unwisely) wondering if Nashville’s most explosive firecracker had settled into life as a domestic diva. ‘Fastest Girl in Town’ is Lambert breathing fire again.
The 2012 CMT Music Awards are a collection of both superstars and hot, new country talent. This week, stars like Carrie Underwood and Eric Church have been rehearsing their performances, while newcomers like Kip Moore, Jana Kramer and the FARM look to take the stage for the very first time. Scroll through these photos of artists preparing for Wednesday’s (June 6) CMT broadcast.
