OFFSTAGE: CMT Music Awards After-Party Open to Fans

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

The CMT Music Awards are always a party. But, aren’t you just a little curious about the party that goes on after the show? This year’s official Fan After Party is happening Wednesday (June 6) right on Third Avenue South in Nashville immediately following the awards show at Bridgestone Arena. The party, presented by Warner Music Nashville, kicks off the label’s three nights of live music at the super-cool aVenue. All you have to do is order tickets now , walk about two and a-half blocks, and they’ll have them waiting for you. So after watching all the country stars you know and love pick up their big CMT belt buckles, you can keep the party going with Gloriana and Charlie Worsham. Gloriana’s latest single, “(Kissed You) Good Night,” is the one the trio just performed on The Bachelorette when Emily Maynard and Ryan Bowers ended their one-on-one date with a slow dance. And Charlie Worsham, who I know from following him on Twitter has a green belt in karate and plays a new guitar from the ’60s, will be there to open the show. I also know this about Worsham. He’s toured with Miranda Lambert and Taylor Swift, so even though he’s still a bit of a rookie, he learned from the best.
