'CMT Hot 20 Countdown' Has All the Highlights This Weekend

The 2015 CMT Music Awards was country music’s loudest party, and we have all the highlights on an all-new CMT Hot 20 Countdown. From red-hot performances, red carpet interviews and exclusive backstage chats, we have you covered with our backstage interviews.

Carrie Underwood made her first awards show appearance since becoming a mom. The superstar ruled night walking away with three trophies, including video of the year for “Something in the Water.” We’ll chat with Carrie about winning the grand prize, texting Miranda Lambert and why she didn’t hesitate to release “Something in the Water.”

Luke Bryan stops by and reveals what had him in shock after hearing his name for male video of the year. Keith Urban explains why his debut performance of “John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16” left him with an “odd feeling.” Jake Owen tells us why he purposely cranked up the “fun factor” during his performance of “Real Life.”

Breakthrough video of the year winner Sam Hunt describes the wardrobe decision for his “House Party” performance. Billy Ray Cyrus, Kellie Pickler, Sara Evans and Kelsea Ballerini also stop by to talk with Cody Alan and Katie Cook backstage from the awards show.

We have a star-packed red carpet report where we learn that one country couple is moving from Nashville to London. Arnold Schwarzenegger was in the building, and a few of your favorite country singers were star-struck by the Terminator.

We’ll take a look at some of the hottest 2015 CMT Music Awards red carpet fashion statements. Plus, there’s an awesome Cole Swindell performance of “Let Me See Ya Girl” that you don’t want to miss.

And as always, we’ll be counting down the 20 hottest videos in the land.
