Kelsea Ballerini To Return As Host For 2024 CMT Music Awards

Grammy-nominated country star Kelsea Ballerini will once again return as host for this year’s CMT Music Awards, marking her fourth consecutive year leading the fan-voted event.

Ballerini fronted the CMT Music Awards alongside Kane Brown in both 2021 and 2023, and hosted the show remotely in 2022.

“I couldn’t be more excited to be back for my fourth year with my CMT family to host this year’s CMT Music Awards in Austin, Texas,” she shares. “Hosting an awards show that celebrates the music that the fans love most has been an honor and I know this year will be another unforgettable night.”

Nominees, performers and presenters will be announced in the coming weeks.

The CMT Music Awards will air live on CBS from Moody Center in Austin, Texas on Sunday, April 7, starting at 7 p.m. CT. Paramount+ with Showtime subscribers will be available to stream the event live and on demand, and Paramount+ Essential subscribers will be able to watch it on demand the next day (April 8).
