CMT has announced Kane Brown will join previously announced co-host, Kelsea Ballerini, for the 2023 CMT Music Awards. Taking place live from Austin, TX on Monday, April 2 at 8PM ET / 7PM CT on CBS, the show will feature high-profile celebs, cross-genre performances, and entirely fan-voted awards.
This will be Kane’s fourth time hosting the awards, making him the first host to do-so. He previously hosted with Kelsea as well as Anthony Mackie (stepping in when Ballerini tested positive for COVID) and in 2020 he hosted alongside Ashley McBryde and Sarah Hyland.
Hosting won’t be his only duty for the big night. Kane is also scheduled to perform his most-recent #1 hit, “Thank God,” which features his wife, Katelyn. Yes, she is expected to join him on stage to mark the first live, broadcasted performance of the song.
Less than a week after the awards, on April 7, Brown can be seen on CBS once again as he makes his acting debut on Fire Country. The 29-year-old will play Robin, an on-the-run outlaw who assists patients at the site of a train crash.
