The CMT Artists of the Year special airs tonight honoring Carrie Underwood, Chris Stapleton, Florida Georgia Line, Luke Bryan and Thomas Rhett. Among the performers are Kelsea Ballerini and Meghan Trainor paying tribute to Shania who’s the CMT Artist of a Lifetime and Little Big Town’s Karen Fairchild and Luke Bryan will sing their duet,’ Home Alone Tonight.’ 

Florida Georgia Line say as for their music they know everyone’s not a fan. Tyler says “if we don’t have haters, we’re not doing something right. Bad reviews do nothing but motivate us.” 

If he wasn’t a country star, Eric Church says he’d have been a mediocre high school basketball coach and an even worse teacher. Eric’s very competitive and he thinks it comes from being a first born. 

In his down time, Garth likes to get on a tractor on his farm and tear something up. He loves the smell of dirt and likes to go to bed with what he calls a ‘good tired.’ 

Finally - tonight, Zac Brown Band headlines the USO Gala in Washington DC.
