In Case You Missed It... CMT Music Awards Went Down Tonight!


The 2022 CMT Music Awards went down in Nashville last night and it was a very good night for Jason Aldean and Carrie Underwood, who took home Video of the Year and Collaborative Video of the Year For “If I Didn’t Love You.” With Carrie’s two wins she extends her record for the most CMT Music Award wins with 25. It was also Jason’s first-ever Video of the Year win, and the ninth for Carrie.

"Seventeen years in the game and this is the first time I ever won Video of the Year," Jason said in his speech, "so this is pretty amazing to me." 

Other big winners include Miranda Lambert, who won Female Video of the Year for “If I Was A Cowboy,” Cody Johnson, who earned two awards, Male Video of the Year for "Til You Can’t” and Digital Performance of the Year for his “CMT Campfire Sessions” performance of “Dear Rodeo,” Maddie & Tae, won Duo/Group Video of the Year for “Woman You Got,” Parker McCollum won Breakthrough Video of the Year for “To Be Loved by You” and George Strait won CMT Performance of the Year for “Is Anyone Goin’ To San Antone,” from “CMT GIANTS: Charley Pride.”

Taylor Swift even won an award, taking home the first-ever Trending Comeback Song of the Year award for “Love Story.”

  • The show was supposed to be hosted by Kelsea Ballerini and Anthony Mackie, but Kelsea was unable to be at the show in person after testing positive for COVID. Kane Brown, who co-hosted last year, stepped in at the last minute to handle hosting duties, with Kelsea still taking part from home. In fact, the whole opening monologue featured jokes about which stars would make a good co-host, before Kelsea joined in from home.

As usual, the CMT Music Awards were filled with a whole bunch of great performances, with many taking place around Nashville, some in the rain. Among the highlights:

  • Keith Urban opened the show with his hit “Wild Hearts.”
  • Cole Swindell and Lainey Wilson took to the CMT stage on Nashville’s Lower Broadway to perform “Never Say Never,” as the rain came pouring down around them.
  • Little Big Town treated the crowd to the world premiere of their brand new single “Hell Yeah.”

  • Carrie Underwood, who was in house, gave fans a look at her recent Las Vegas residency at Resorts World, with a pre-recorded performance of “Ghost Story” from the show, which included her joining her dancers in an aerial performance.
  • Jason Aldean and Bryan Adams, in a salute to “CMT Crossroads,” reunited on Lower Broadway to perform “Heaven,” which they originally performed in a 2009 episode of the series.
  • Mickey Guyton and Black Pumas, who will star in an upcoming episode of “CMT Crossroads,” teamed for a beautiful performance of Black Pumas’ “Colors.”
  • Kelsea Ballerini performed the world television premiere of her new song “Heartfirst” from her backyard.
  • The Judds reunited to perform their classic “Love Can Build A Bridge” in front the Country Music Hall of Fame, marking their first award show performance in more than 20 years.
