FutureStarr2023 CMT Music Awards Announced
On Sunday, April 2, the 2023 CMT Music Awards will air live from Austin's Moody Center. The fan-voted event can be seen live on CBS and Paramount+ starting at 8 p.m.
This week, Lainey Wilson led all nominees with four nods followed by Cody Johnson and Kane Brown with three each.
Kelsea Ballerini and Carrie Underwood have delighted fans by announcing that they will host the 2023 CMT music awards. Additionally, they revealed that this year's awards will take place for the first time at Moody Center in Austin.
At a live performance by Carrie Underwood and Ballerini, who are currently on their Denim and Rhinestones tour together, it was announced that Ballerini would be hosting the awards show alongside her. As she handed Carrie Underwood a belt buckle adorned in denim and rhinestones during their performance, Underwood excitedly gave back the belt buckle as part of her gesture.
Fans were overjoyed as Alanis Morissette and Gwen Stefani performed a cover of their popular country song, "Heart First". Throughout their performance, the couple formed an emotional bond with their audience as they professed their affection for one another.
Following their duet, the couple posed for photos together. They were joined by other performers such as Lainey Wilson, Cody Johnson, Jelly Roll and Kane Brown.
In addition to the stunning news, Underwood presented Ballerini with her very own Opry trophy--a small microphone on a stand symbolizing her membership in the iconic venue. This award is one of the most prized possessions for any country star--and one she had to wait long for.
Meanwhile, she's achieved great success with her own hits, such as number one singles "Miss Me More," "Shotgun Rider" and "Dear Old Dad." Additionally, Miss Me More will release its debut album in May.
When it comes to the video of the year category, Shelton's "No Body," Underwood's "Hate My Heart" and Johnson's "Human" are all contenders for top honors. But competition is fierce as Wilson's "Wait in the Truck," HARDY and Wilson's "Thank God," Kane and Katelyn Brown's "Thank You" all have strong chances at taking home top honors.
This year marks the first time the CMT music awards will be hosted outside Nashville, and it promises to be an exciting night! The awards air Sunday, April 2 on CBS from Moody Center in Austin. Plus, Paramount+ will stream it live and on demand - so you can watch from home!

For years, the CMT Music Awards has been on the go - but now it's finally making Austin its home. This year's show will bring country superstars to a city that loves them so much - hosted by Kelsea Ballerini and Carrie Underwood.
Jeff Nickler, general manager of the Moody Center in Austin, believes that Austin's new arena has been a major draw for artists. He attributes its success to both Austin's burgeoning population and expanding economy, as well as collaborations between University of Texas at Austin, Live Nation/C3 Presents, Oak View Group and Minister of Culture Matthew McConaughey.
Since opening its doors in April, the arena has welcomed a host of top talent to Austin, including George Straight, Roger Waters, The Killers and Boxscore record-breaker Harry Styles. Its first-year sales have vaulted it to the top of Billboard's year-end Top Venues (10,000-15,000 capacity) chart with sales exceeding $62.7 million dollars in tickets sold.
Premium experiences are a big draw at Moody Center. Guests can enjoy shows in 44 suites, nearly 2,000 club seats, three premium clubs (the Dell Technologies Club, Indeed Club and Germania Insurance Club), 57 loge boxes and the Moet & Chandon Imperial Lounge). In addition to premium seating options, the arena also provides various food options - it boasts over 1,500 restaurants within its walls including local favorites The Driskill Hotel and Hulu Stage.
The nominations for the 2023 CMT Music Awards have been revealed, with Bell Bottom Country star Lainey Wilson leading the pack with four nods. Cody Johnson, Luke Combs, HARDY and Morgan Wallen each earn two nods.
Carrie Underwood, who is the most-awarded artist in CMT history with 25 wins, is once again up for Video of the Year with her song "Hate My Heart," from her album Denim & Rhinestones. She will join 14 other acts competing for top honors at an awards ceremony to be held April 2 at Austin's Moody Center on April 2.
Underwood's video is a parody that depicts a group of friends going through a breakup and having fun at Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville. The song, written by Underwood and Matt McKinney, was released in September.
Shelton, who has been nominated in the video category for "No Body," is also up for another award. He's nominated for Video of the Year and Record of the Year; plus, he and fellow singers Blake Shelton and Keith Urban are up for Collaborative Video of the Year.
