Jason Aldean to lead Gregg Allman tribute at CMT Music Awards

The 39-year-old actor has joined a long list of celebrities who will give out the prestigious awards at the star-studded bash, which will take place at Nashville's Music City Centre on Wednesday (06.07.17), that celebrates folk musicians, recognizes the best music videos and television performances over the past year. This show will be hosted by CMT's Cody Alan and Katie Cooke. Nashville star Charles Esten will host the program.

Fans can start arriving to get a spot for the concert beginning at 4 p.m. Aldean did not say what time his concert would begin in downtown, just saying it would be after the CMT Music Awards. That connection is why our show, "Nashville", now has a ideal home on the network.
