    CMT Artists of the Year 2013

    I wasn't sure where to put this since Carrie isn't one of them this year...

    CMT will celebrate a remarkable year in country music by honoring Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Hunter Hayes and Tim McGraw as 2013's country music artists of the year in the 90-minute special, CMT Artists of the Year.

    For the first time, the special will be premiering live. It will air Dec. 3 at 8 p.m. ET. This year's five honorees will gather in Nashville alongside their peers and notable luminaries for an evening filled with rocking performances, surprise guests and cheers to the achievements of each artist.

    Over the past 12 months, Aldean, a four-time honoree, along with Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Hayes and McGraw, have illustrated their impact in country music through massive radio airplay, chart-topping album sales and millions of individual downloads of their current singles.

    Additionally, these acts have sold out concert tours, and collectively their videos have received hundreds of millions of streams, earning them the honor of being named one of CMT's Artists of the Year.

    Aldean has been recognized with the honor every year since the first ceremony in 2010. Bryan was one of seven recipients last year, marking his first time to be recognized. Florida Georgia Line, Hayes and McGraw have been named CMT Artists of the Year for the first time this year.


    Along with Aldean and Bryan, country stars named as previous CMT Artists of the Year include Kenny Chesney, Eric Church, Toby Keith, Lady Antebellum, Miranda Lambert, Brad Paisley, Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood and the Zac Brown Band.

    i see CMT is following along with this year's theme of "where in the world are the women of country?"

    I really can't think of any women that has had a blockbuster year except for Carrie! I guess they could have done The Band Perry but I don't think of them having a blockbuster year either. Can anyone think of a woman (besides Taylor :-/) that has had a VERY good year?

    No! And, I don't expect that to change in the near future. I'm not a big fan of Taylor's music but if she is "country" in every respect at CMT why not AOTY? She had twice the year of a couple of those artists.

    They couldn't have included Carrie as Artist of the year b/c there is no way she could take part in the show. She's fully busy with the CMA's and the SOM. Otherwise, she should have been included.

    Aside from maybe Hunter, this year's list of honorees pretty much sums up everything that's wrong with country music right now: no females and dudes that sing stupid songs.

    I believe she would've been included as well BUT they still could've included her even though there was no way that she could attend. She could've done a taped piece while she was in Nashville for the CMAs.

    IMO it just looks really, really bad for CMT.

    thats what I told windmills!The show is taped anyway so Carrie could have taped a piece in NY.
    and then they include HH, who just happens to be headlining the CMT fall tour.

    There is not one single reason to watch this show! I like HH but there is no way that I would watch the show just to see 10 minutes of his recognition. I only taped Carrie's portion of the show last year and on my DVR it says that her part was only 7 minutes.

    I'm with you, Liz. I know I won't be watching. In fact, I hardly watch CMT at all anymore. I might tune in on Saturdays to catch Carrie's position on their top 20 but that's about it now. This channel has become less and less about country music. And I really don't like the new format for the top 20 show.

    The article says the premiere on Dec 3 will be live not taped.

    Carrie couldn't go anyway of she was a honoree because she is busy busy with the Sound of music.

    They tape this before its airs in December.

    This year, for the first time, it will be live. Red Carpet should be fun -- NOT!!!!

    I'm inclined to believe that theory (especially if the show is going out live).

    CMT have nothing really to do with Music Row, the CMA or the Country Music industry (with whatever preconceptions about artists some of those might have). They're a Viacom channel, a sister channel to MTV and VH1. Carrie has a big ratings potential, and I think they'd have wanted to include her if she'd been available

    Carrie should be on this list. I know she has the som but the air date for the som was revealed months ago. It isn't like they couldn't do the special the week after or the weekend of that week. #justmyopinion
