Kane Brown, Kenny Rogers, Kelsea Ballerini and More Made Our Best-Of-2020 List

See Which CMT Moments Were Silver Linings For All of Us

It’s time, finally, to give this unprecedented year a proper send off. The kind where we started looking for the silver linings in the cloudy year, and we realized that even though this year looked different, CMT did our very best to make it sound the same. By finding new — and most importantly, safe — ways to bring you the country music that brings you comfort just when you need it most.

Here are our top ten CMT moments from 2020.

1. CMT GIANTS Kenny Rogers: A Benefit For MusiCares

After we lost Kenny Rogers in March, it was a bittersweet honor to put together a show full of tributes and songs from the country legend’s superstar friends like Dolly Parton, Lady Antebellum, Lionel Richie, Michael McDonald, Randy Houser, Rascal Flatts, Vince Gill, Jason Isbell & Amanda Shires, Jennifer Nettles and more filming their parts from their own homes. Best of all, the show helped raise money for the MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund created to provide funds to help the thousands of music creators and industry professionals who lost their jobs because of the pandemic.
