CMT Awards: Performers Lineup

Kelsea Ballerini leads this list of talented ladies with three nominations for Video of the Year, Collaborative Video of the Year, and CMT Performance of the Year. Miranda Lambert and Maren Morris are both in the running for Video of the Year and Female Video of the Year as well. In addition to these nominated solo acts, Little Big Town will be performing.
