The CMT Music Awards are to be held in Nashville, Tennessee on April 11, 2022, at the Nashville Municipal Auditorium and locations in and around Music City. CMT revealed today that Chesney will close the 2022 CMT Music Awards, a performance that marks his first time on the show in seven years.

The Awards, which have aired on CMT since 2002, will have their "global premiere" exclusively on CBS in 2022. The ceremony will be hosted by CMT winner Kelsea Ballerini and actor Anthony Mackie. This is Ballerini's second time hosting.
