The countdown to the 2022 CMT Music Awards is on and a slew of new performers have been added to the already star-studded lineup. 

On Tuesday morning, CMT revealed six artists set to perform on the Ram Trucks Side Stage during the upcoming awards show: Priscilla Block (“My Bar”), BRELAND (“Praise The Lord”), Jessie James Decker  (“Should Have Known Better”), Parker McCollum  (“To Be Loved By You”), Elvie Shane  (“My Boy”) and Caitlyn Smith (“High”).
