CMT Artists of the Year on the Red Carpet

Some of the biggest names in country music gathered in Nashville to celebrate CMT’s Artists of the Year on Oct. 13. The five honorees at this year’s event were Luke Combs, Kelsea Ballerini, Gabby Barrett, and Kane Brown, while Mickey Guyton was named Breakout Artist of the Year and Randy Travis was recognized as the Artist of a Lifetime. Most of the honorees, along with some other big names in country music, appeared at the event to walk the red carpet and then enjoy the show.

 

In addition to the event recognizing these seven artists, the night was also chock-full of performances. Kelsea Ballerini performed virtually from her tour with the Jonas Brothers, while the other honorees, amongst others, took the stage in Nashville to show off their stuff.


Check out photos of the red carpet arrivals ahead.
