About the Show

Wednesday, October 18, 2017

Following the devastating hurricanes, horrific California wildfires and tragic mass shooting in Las Vegas, CMT transforms this year's CMT Artists of the Year special from a year-end celebration honoring the top artists of the year, into a night of hope and healing through the power of music featuring honorees Chris Stapleton, Florida Georgia Line, Jason Aldean, Keith Urban and Luke Bryan. The eighth-annual special aired live from Nashville's Schermerhorn Symphony Center on Wednesday, October 18.
