Shania Twain To Be Awarded Artist Of A Lifetime Honor At 2016 CMT Artists Of The Year
The seventh annual CMT Artists of the Year celebration will honor Shania Twain with the Artist of a Lifetime award.
SHANIA TWAIN TO BE HONORED WITH ARTIST OF LIFETIME AWARD
The 90-minute special will feature exciting performances and tributes to the biggest country music stars this year, and will be recorded live at Schermerhorn Symphony Center in Nashville. CMT will also be celebrating the five artists selected as the top artists of the year, which are Carrie Underwood, Chris Stapleton, Georgia Line, Luke Bryan and Thomas Rhett. CMT will also honor Kelsea Ballerini with their Artist of the Year Breakout Award.
Twain is the first female to be awarded as Artist of a Lifetime by CMT. She is a five-time Grammy winner, sold more than 75 albums worldwide, and holds the spot for top-selling female country artist of all time. She also holds the number one top-selling country album of all time, 1997’s Come on Over. Unsurprisingly, that album is the top-selling album by a female in any genre ever.
Twain joins stars like Kenny Rogers and Merle Haggard, who won the lifetime achievement award in past years.
The CMT Artists of the Year celebration will premiere Oct. 20 at 9 p.m.
