Shania Twain and Taylor Swift will be featured in a Thelma & Louise-inspired video parody to serve as the opening segment of the 2011 CMT Music Awards airing Wednesday (June 8) at 8 p.m. ET/PT on CMT and CMT.com. With the two of them in a vintage convertible, Glee star Chord Overstreet also appears in the segment shot Monday in Thompson’s Station, Tenn., a community south of Nashville.
Released in 1991, Thelma & Louise was a hit film starring Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis as a waitress and housewife who embark on a road trip. Overstreet is the son of Nashville-based singer-songwriter Paul Overstreet. Twain will serve as a presenter on the CMT Music Awards.
Kid Rock will host the awards show airing live from Bridgestone Arena in downtown Nashville. Performers include Jason Aldean, Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum, Rascal Flatts, Sugarland, Big & Rich, Toby Keith, the Zac Brown Band and Luke Bryan. Joining Twain as presenters are Sara Evans, Justin Bieber, Sheryl Crow, American Idol winner Scotty McCreery and runner-up Lauren Alaina, Train, Kristin Chenoweth, Melissa Peterman, Dancing With the Stars winner Hines Ward, the Green Bay Packers’ Clay Matthews and actress Mary Steenburgen.View photos of Shania Twain and Taylor Swift’s video shoot.
