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.

But of all of the memories at Charlotte , one is strangely absent - a Cup Series points race victory. But we'd obviously rather win and have one in the win column - that way you get in no matter what.

Some of country music's biggest solo stars, including Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert and Thomas Rhett will perform throughout the night. The event will occur on the first day of the 2017 CMA Music Festival, June 8, in support of the MuttNation Foundation, a non-profit that Lambert founded to support animal shelters, pet adoptions and rescue animals. "Over the weekend of his death, CMT's most important artists reached out to see how we might honor Gregg at our Awards". The latter performance also will feature Darius Rucker, Jason Aldean and Lady Antebellum's Charles Kelley.
