New York, NY (Top40 Charts) CMT today revealed that some of music's biggest stars will perform brand-new songs for the first time ever on television when the "2018 CMT Music Awards" premieres LIVE from Nashville's Bridgestone Arena tomorrow, June 6 at 8pm ET/PT. The performances will not only feature the newest songs that will become the soundtrack to the summer, but they will use the CMT stage to introduce their new music to the world.

"CMT music fans have an unquenchable thirst for music discovery. This show features the freshest and most exciting summer songs ever presented on one stage," said Margaret Comeaux, executive producer, CMT Music Awards.

The line-up of world television premiere performances includes:
Darius Rucker featuring Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan and Charles Kelley - "Straight to Hell"
Dierks Bentley featuring Brothers Osborne - "Burning Man"
Florida Georgia Line - "Simple"
Kelly Clarkson - "American Woman"
Little Big Town - "Summer Fever"
Sam Hunt - "Downtown's Dead"
Backstreet Boys - "Don't Go Breaking My Heart"

The performers join previously announced performers Blake Shelton, Chris Stapleton, Jason Aldean and Kelsea Ballerini to round out the ultimate night of country music in Nashville.

The latest announcement follows renewed ratings growth and critical acclaim for CMT music specials and events due in part to a creative refresh featuring current and genre-bending artist pairings and pro-social elements. In October, "CMT Artists of the Year" notched its highest rating to date and now ranks as one of the fastest growing award shows, while "CMT Crossroads" recently garnered its highest ratings in five years with an episode featuring Backstreet Boys and Florida Georgia Line. The network recently finished its highest-rated quarter since 2014 and notched its fifth consecutive quarter of year-over-year ratings growth. April 2018 was CMT's best April performance in 4 years, extending to 17 the channel's streak of consecutive months of year-over-year ratings growth among Adults 18-49 and Women 18-49.
