The special is intended to be an uplifting celebration and two-hour virtual tribute that will bring together country music’s biggest names to recognize the most vital and inspirational Americans on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic, according to CMT.

CMT is currently seeking stories of unsung heroes who are doing exceptional things for their communities during the pandemic. Personal stories of those who have positively impacted their community, state and nation can be submitted to for potential inclusion in the special, which will be virtually produced by CMT.


This year’s edition will mark a shift in focus for the annual “CMT Artists of the Year” special. Now in its 11th year, the show usually honors top country stars having a big year.
