Maren Morris will not be performing at the 2021 CMT Music Awards.

The country superstar informed fans of the news via Instagram stories on Monday, June 7. The singer was scheduled to perform “Line By Line” alongside her friend and collaborator JP Saxe at the awards show. 

“Due to a scheduling conflict, I will not be performing at the CMT Music Awards on Wednesday,” Morris said. “I know JP Saxe will slay it and I am so excited for his album to come out soon!”

Morris leads the 2021 nominations at the star-studded awards ceremony this Wednesday with 4 nods, including Female Video Of The Year (“To Hell & Back”), Collaborative Video Of The Year (“Chasing After You” w/ husband Ryan Hurd) and two nods in the Video Of The Year category.

Morris put her stunning vocals on full display with no production, just her and her acoustic guitar, in a beautiful rustic log cabin during the 2020 CMT Music Awards, performing her fan-favorite hit, “To Hell & Back.”

Additionally, fellow country superstar Gabby Barrett also pulled herself from Wednesday’s star-studded awards show due to “personal circumstances.”
