Cam Joins 2016 CMT Music Awards Performance Lineup
The rising country star and pop group Fifth Harmony will sing a mashup of their songs "Mayday" and "Work From Home" during the awards show broadcast. They join previously announced performers Luke Bryan, Chris Stapleton, Blake Shelton (with the Oak Ridge Boys), Keith Urban (with Maren Morris and Brett Eldredge), Thomas Rhett, Florida Georgia Line and Jason Aldean.
Along with Carrie Underwood and Stapleton, Cam has the most nominations of any artist at the 2016 CMT Music Awards. Underwood, Stapleton and Cam all received three nods each; Cam's are for Video of the Year, Female Video of the Year and Breakthrough Video of the Year, all for “Burning House." Additionally, Cam is nominated for the CMT Social Superstar honor.
In addition to Cam and Fifth Harmony's newly announced performance, CMT has revealed that Erin Andrews and JJ Watt will be hosting this year's ceremony. Watt is a first-time host (although he presented at the show in 2015), while Andrews hosted last year's CMT Music Awards.
“I’m thrilled to come back to Nashville to co-host the CMT Music Awards,” Andrews says in a statement. “I had so much fun last year, and I can’t wait to see what antics JJ and I will get into together."
Adds Watt, "There are two things that I know about the people of Nashville: They love country music, and they know how to throw a party. When you put those two things together, it makes for one heck of a night."
A few presenters for the 2016 CMT Music Awards were also revealed: actors Vince Vaughn, Rob Riggle, Joey Lauren Adams and Madison Iseman; NASCAR driver Danica Patrick; and country stars Charles Kelley, Cole Swindell, Dan + Shay and Kellie Pickler.
Voting for the 2016 CMT Music Awards is now open, through June 6 at 12:01AM ET. Fans can cast their votes through CMT.com. The awards will air live from Nashville on CMT on June 8.
