We’ve got an awards show on Wednesday night. I know, some of you are sitting out there saying, “oh, no, not another awards show!” And then, there are people like me…Can’t wait! Who’s walking with who? What are they wearing? Who is performing? Oh yes, and who is going to win. Somehow, who wins isn’t even my favorite part of the show. I just like to watch. The 2012 CMT Music Awards will be held on Wednesday night, June 6, in Nashville. And those of us not fortunate enough to be in Nashville can watch live on CMT at 8 p.m. ET.
I received a press release letting us all know what to expect on Wednesday night’s show. Here are your presenters and performers. Here’s the press release, with a few photos I tossed it to dress it up a little.
