CMT set to honor the 2010 CMT Artists of the Year, promising “this is NOT another award show!”.
CMT has announced that on December 3rd, 2010 they will be airing a special 90minute celebration, honoring the top 5 artists of the year. The artists are chosen based on album and download sales, radio airplay, online activity, and touring. Producers brag that this is not another award show, instead offering an intimate and worm setting, with a variety of performances and tributes to the industry’s finest.
Make no mistake: This is not an awards show or a competition, but a year-end party on a grand scale,” said John Hamlin, senior vice president, music events and talent, CMT. “CMT ARTISTS OF THE YEAR celebrates the artists that made this year a great one for country music. It’s their night because it’s been their year and they deserve to be wined, dined and entertained like no other evening anywhere else.
