Luke BryanBlake SheltonKelly Clarkson, Chris Stapleton, Kelsea Ballerini and Sam Hunt are the first performers to be announced for the 2018 CMT Music Awards. CMT will televise the show from Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on June 6 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

Clarkson will perform her version of the Guess Who's "American Woman" on the show. Clarkson's remake of the song is the theme to the Paramount Network series of the same title. The show, which stars Alicia Silverstone, is loosely based on the 1970s life of Kathleen Richards, the mother of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Kyle Richards.

Little Big Town will host the 2018 CMT Awards. Jason Aldean, Florida Georgia Line and Carrie Underwood are tied for the most nominations; they have four nods each. Voting, which is done online, will close on June 4 for most of the categories.
