Congratulations Shania Twain!
At this year’s seventh annual CMT Artists of the Year celebration, county artist Shania Twain will be recognized with the Artist of a Lifetime Award. With artists such as Kenny Rogers and Merle Haggard receiving this award in the past, Twain will become the award’s first female recipient.
It was previously announced that artists Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Thomas Rhett, Chris Stapleton and Carrie Underwood would all be honored at this year’s celebration as the artists of the year.
Kelsea Ballerini will also be honored when she receives the second-annual Breakout Artist of the Year Award.
This year’s special will air live December 2 from Nashville’s Schermerhorn Symphony Center on CMT.
