2022 CMT Music Awards: The Full List Of Winners

CMT Music Awards / Facebook

The CMT Music Awards differ from other country awards shows for two big reasons. Number one, the awards mostly honor music videos and performances, rather than songs, albums, and artists. Number two, the awards are all fan-voted!

Everyone finally got the chance to see how the votes turned out when the ceremony aired on Monday night (April 11). The show aired on CBS at 8/7c and was hosted by Kelsea Ballerini, Anthony Mackie, and Kane Brown.

You’ll find a complete list of nominees and winners at this year’s CMT Music Awards below. We’ll be updating the list throughout the night as new winners are announced. Keep checking back for updates!
