The Band Perry Premiering New Video on CMT Hot 20

Luke Bryan, Lady Antebellum, Thomas Rhett Are Also in the News

CMT Hot 20 Countdown is in beautiful Oregon this week as we explore the state’s deep connections to country music. We’ll bring you some amazing views and then we’ll present the world premiere of The Band Perry’s latest video, “Live Forever.”

A Luke Bryan mash-up? Check out which pop star has Luke hitting the high notes in an online collaboration. And did you ever wonder what a Luke Bryan candle would smell like? We asked the stars to take the first whiff to find out. Hot 20 caught all of the hilarious reactions.

We stopped by Jason Aldean’s triple-No. 1 party in Nashville to uncover his secret to song success. Sexiness may be the key to his string of hits, but having the guys of Florida Georgia Line co-write may not be a bad decision either. We spoke to all three about music, marriage and future babies.

There’s baby fever in the air! Lady Antebellum’s Charles Kelley chats with Hot 20 in his first TV interview since he and his wife Cassie announced they are expecting their first child. Plus, which other country star is expecting?

Carrie Underwood rocketed up the list of super-successful women in music. Discover her latest accomplishment on this weekend’s episode.

Another country marriage hit the rocks. Jake Owen and Lacey Buchanan announced their split, and Hot 20 has the details.

Get an exclusive look as Thomas Rhett takes us on the set of his latest music video for “Crash and Burn.” He wasn’t going to let a little bad weather rain on his parade. (FYI: He even did his own stunts.)

Dolly Parton’s upcoming TV movie, Coat of Many Colors, has some new faces in its cast, but who will play her mother? Hint: This solo artist is also a member of an award-winning duo.

As always, we’ll count down this week’s 20 hottest videos.

Tune in to an all-new CMT Hot 20 Countdown this Saturday and Sunday (Aug. 15-16) at 9 a.m. ET/PT.
