Kane Brown and Kelsea Ballerini to Co-Host 2021 CMT Awards

Kane Brown and Kelsea Ballerini will co-host the 2021 CMT Music Awards set for June 9!

This will be Kane’s 2nd time as co-host. He shared those duties with Ashley McBryde and Sarah Hyland in 2020. Kelsea previously co-hosted CMA Fest with Thomas Rhett.

Producers said in a press release that the “dynamic duo reflects the show’s revitalized energy as live music returns to center stage in a night filled with incredible outdoor performances, cross-genre collaborations and a few surprises.”

“The CMT Music Awards are special to me — it’s the first industry award I won, and getting on that stage was an amazing feeling,” says Brown. I love that the fans get to have their voices heard as we celebrate the best in country music.”

Kelsea added, “The CMT Awards are so special because they are truly fan voted. Following a year-plus where we have not been able to be with the fans and share music together will make this night even more special.”
