This year's "CMT Artists of the Year" special is going to be all female. As in, every honoree will be a woman. We're talking Miranda Lambert, Maren Morris, Carrie Underwood, Kelsea Ballerini . . . plus Little Big Town's Karen Fairchild and Kimberly Schlapman . . . and Lady Antebellum's Hillary Scott.
Is this their way of recognizing the #MeToo movement? Of course.
And maybe the dreadful lack of female Entertainer of the Year nominees at the CMAs and ACMs. Mostly it's a start, and it's appreciated.Maren Morris Tweeted, "Thank you for narrowing the gap in this industry. Proud to be honored among friends this night." Kelsea Ballerini said, "Goodness, I love you CMT." Hillary Scott wrote, "This puts a smile on my face like no other."And Little Big Town gave a shout-out. Quote, "Couldn't be any prouder to stand alongside these inspiring women. Thank you CMT."
No word yet on the list of performers. The show will air October 17th.
