Warner Music Nashville celebrated wins and performances last night at the 2022 CMT Music Awards in Nashville. The night saw performances from Gabby Barrett, BRELAND, Kenny Chesney, Jessie James Decker, Cody Johnson and Cole Swindell. Celebrations kicked off early on the CMT red carpet as Johnson was surprised with his first awards show win for CMT Digital-First Performance of the Year for “Dear Rodeo” (from CMT Campfire Sessions). He later received the win for Male Video of the Year for his multi-week No.1 “’Til You Can’t,” also a finalist for Video of the Year.

“Well how about that?” Johnson said as he accepted the award for Male Video of the Year. “Dustin Haney made an awesome video. Matt Rogers and Ben Stennis wrote a great song. I’m very proud to be able to stand up here with this award. This is the second CMT award that we have gotten tonight, and the best part of it is that it is fan voted, so thank you to every single person that got up there and voted. Long live country music. Are you with me?”

Johnson then took to the honkytonk-filled street of Broadway to perform the winning track, which has logged more than 225 million global streams (WATCH HERE). The RIAA-Gold certified song now boasts more than 1 million track equivalents and serves as the debut single from Johnson’s Human The Double Album. Swindell also joined the downtown stage lineup alongside Lainey Wilson for his Top 5 and climbing single “Never Say Never,” which they performed on ABC’s Good Morning America earlier in the day (WATCH HERE). The track is off his fourth studio album Stereotype, released last Friday, April 8.

Heading into Municipal Auditorium, Barrett made the TV debut of her current single “Pick Me Up” (WATCH HERE). In addition, BRELAND and Decker hit the RAM Trucks Side Stage for their CMT Music Awards debut performances. BRELAND performed his brand-new track “Praise The Lord,” which he debuted last month on the 57th Annual ACM Awards alongside Thomas Rhett. BRELAND will take over the Ryman Auditorium tonight for “BRELAND & Friends” concert to benefit Oasis Center. Decker performed her latest track “Should Have Known Better,” set to impact country radio on May 2. The song hails from her EP The Woman I’ve Become, which debuted at No.1 on the iTunes country chart and No. 5 all-genre.

Chesney closed out the show with his smash hit “Beer In Mexico,” providing fans with a sneak peek into his upcoming Here And Now 2022 stadium tour, kicking off on April 23 in Tampa, FL (WATCH HERE). The country superstar is an eight-time Entertainer of the Year and the only country artist in the Top 10 of Billboard’s Top Touring Acts of the Decade. His current single “Everyone She Knows” is currently climbing at country radio.
