Artists such as Sam Hunt, Dan +Shay, Luke Combs, Little Big Town, Kelsea Ballerini, Brooks & Dunn, Gabby Barrett and more took part in the socially-distant CMT Music Awards red carpet.
To comply with COVID-19 restrictions, the artists appeared without their significant others and no media was allowed to attend for interviews.
The CMT Music Awards will air live on Wednesday, October 21 at 8 p.m. EST on CMT as well as on MTV, MTV2, Logo, Paramount Network, Pop TV and TV Land, and will feature “epic outdoor performances in and around Music City.”
