The CMT Artists of the Year Airs Tonight + Luke Bryan Suffers Family Loss Last Weekend

The CMT Artists of the Year hosted by Larry the Cable Guy airs tonight on CMT & VH1. Stars like Eric Church and Lady A will honor Keith Urban, Jason Aldean, Florida Georgia Line, Miranda Lambert and Luke Bryan but he’s had to cancel due to the loss of his brother-in-law Ben Saturday. Ben was married to Luke’s sister who died 7 years ago.

Keith Urban says he’d still be playing music even if he never achieved commercial success. When he started playing at age 6, his parents were incredibly supportive and drove him to numerous talent competitions. He wasn’t even old enough to drive when he joined his first band.

Carrie Underwood always wears makeup, even on her day off and says, “I just feel better when I have a little on.” Of course the few times she’s made a late night run to the grocery store without any are when fans see her and want to take a photo.

Finally - Tim McGraw says as a child he had an Elvis record he wore out and when he met Faith he was so happy to find out she too was a huge Elvis fan.
