All Female CMT Artist of the Year

Yup. Not kidding. Every honoree at this year’s “CMT Artists of the Year” special is a woman.  Miranda LambertMaren MorrisCarrie UnderwoodKelsea BalleriniKaren Fairchild and Kimberly Schlapman from Little Big Town, and Hillary Scott of Lady Antebellum.

This might be a way to make good for the lack of female Entertainer of the Year nominees at the CMAs and ACMs.  Either way, it should be a good show.

Maren Morris Tweeted, “Thank you for narrowing the gap in this industry.  Proud to be honored        among friends this night.”

Kelsea Ballerini said, “Goodness, I love you CMT.”

Hillary Scott wrote, “This puts a smile on my face like no other.”

No word yet on the list of performers.  The show will air October 17th.
