CMT to Honor Top Performers with End-of-the-Year Party

Posted by Jacob Ryan on 08/26/2010
Country Music Television is bringing the industry’s top performers and personalities together in Nashville on Dec. 3 for an end-of-the-year party filled with live music, heartfelt tributes and down-home companionship.
CMT’s Artists of the Year will be a 90-minute special honoring five of Country Music’s top acts based on album and download sales, radio airplay, online activity and touring. Performers and the event’s host have yet to be announced, but the elegant, yet relaxed setting is sure to bring out the best Country Music has to offer.
“Make no mistake, this is not an awards show or a competition, but a year-end party on a grand scale,” said John Hamlin, senior vice president of music events and talent for CMT. “CMT’s Artists of the Year celebrates the artists that made this year a great one for Country Music. It’s their night because it’s been their year and they deserve to be wined, dined and entertained like no other evening anywhere else.”
