Dierks Bentley and Brothers Osborne to Collaborate at 2018 CMT Music Awards
More performers have been added to the lineup for the 2018 CMT Music Awards. The newly announced artist include a pop act and two big collaborations.
People reports that Carrie Underwood, Dan + Shay, Florida Georgia Line, the Backstreet Boys, Jason Aldean and Little Big Town are all set to perform at the 2018 CMT Music Awards. Additionally, Dierks Bentley and Brothers Osborne, as well as Darius Rucker, Aldean, Luke Bryan and Charles Kelley, will collaborate during the show. Show producers haven't revealed what they'll sing together, but Bentley and the Osbornes have a song on Bentley's new album, The Mountain, called "Burning Man," together, and Rucker, Aldean, Bryan and Kelley worked together for a cover of Drivin' N Cryin's "Straight to Hell" on Rucker's newest album, When Was the Last Time.
Chris Stapleton, Kelsea Ballerini, Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson, Luke Bryan and Sam Hunt were all previously announced as 2018 CMT Music Awards performers. Clarkson, who is making her CMT Music Awards debut, will be singing her version of the Guess Who's "American Woman" (also famously performed by Lenny Kravitz). Clarkson's rendition of the song is the theme for a new Paramount Network sitcom, American Woman, inspired by the real-life upbringing of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards and starring Alicia Silverstone, Mena Suvari and Jennifer Bartels; the show premieres on June 7.
