Yup. Not kidding. Every honoree at this year’s “CMT Artists of the Year” special is a woman. Miranda Lambert, Maren Morris, Carrie Underwood, Kelsea Ballerini, Karen 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.
