Wednesday’s 2017 CMT Music Awards is getting underway with a star-studded red carpet. Check out the pre-show live stream below!
The “CMT Music Awards Red Carpet Special” is a new partnership between CMT and Facebook. Through Facebook Live, the social media site is exclusively broadcasting the festivities outside Nashville’s Music City Center for an hour before Charles Esten hosts the big awards show. Emceeing the pre-show coverage are two of the network’s beloved personalities, Cody Alan and Katie Cook.
Together, the pair will greet and interview some of the biggest names in country music and beyond as they arrive at the venue for one very special night. The pre-show will feature chats with many of the nominees and performers, as well as fan-submitted questions for the artists in attendance. Of course, the camera feeds will also capture all the enviable fashion statements.
Among the country music stars and acts slated to stroll the red carpet are Luke Bryan, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban, Kelsea Ballerini, Lady Antebellum, Miranda Lambert, Florida Georgia Line, Thomas Rhett, and Brothers Osborne. Chris Lane, Lauren Alaina, and Jon Pardi should be walking on by, too. Some Hollywood faces may also pop up during the pre-show, as the likes of Ashton Kutcher, Jada Pinkett Smith and Katherine Heigl are all presenting during the awards show.
The online-only red carpet pre-show starts at 7 p.m. Eastern, after which CMT will televise the live ceremony. Click to watch the live stream!
