For the first time ever, CMT is keeping the illustrious
list of honorees top secret until they are revealed on the night of Dec. 8. Will Jason Aldean make it a three-peat? Will fan-favorite
Miranda Lambert be honored? Will country's biggest bad boy Eric Church make his debut as one of the CMT Artists of the Year?
With so many artists having had a successful year like Kenny Chesney, Toby Keith, Carrie Underwood, Jason Aldean, and many
more, it is going to be tough to predict which artists will walk away with the CMT honor. Take
a look back at some of this year's biggest moments.
