Gabby Barrett and Maren Morris Withdraw from CMT Awards

Maren Morris and Gabby Barrett were set to perform at Wednesday night’s CMT Awards but both stars have had to pull out of the show.

Both artists are nominated for female video of the year this year: Barrett for “The Good Ones” and Morris for “To Hell & Back.”

Maren was scheduled to perform with JP Saxe, who will now take the stage with Ingrid Andress.  Maren cited a scheduling conflict sharing in her Instagram story, “Due to a scheduling conflict, I will not be performing at the CMT Awards on Wednesday I know JP Saxe will slay it and I am so excited for his album to come out soon!”

Gabby was part of a collaboration with Lady A and Carly Pearce but due to “personal circumstances” she will not attend. Lindsay Ell will take her place

In a post on Instagram Gabby shared, “I’m really sad to share that because of personal circumstances I won’t be able to perform with @ladya and @carlypearce on Wednesday at the @cmt Music Awards! I’ll be rooting for you guys and all of the incredibly talented nominees and performers! So appreciate all of your support and will see yall on the road this summer.”
