This was the first year the CMT Music Awards aired on CBS. The show is also remarkable for being a music video-centric awards show, and for allowing fans to decide each winner. The ACM Awards allowed fans to vote in a single category for most of a decade, but abandoned the idea after several years. It's been fans and fans only for this year's CMT Music Awards.

Brown and Ballerini joined Anthony Mackie to host the show. Ballerini participated from home after testing positive for COVID-19 before the show.
