List of CMT Music Awards ceremonies

From Wikipedia the free encyclopedia

This is a list of CMT Music Awards ceremonies and the winners in each ceremony. The show began as the Music City News Awards in 1967. The award show partnered with The Nashville Network (TNN) in 1990 to become the TNN Music City News Country Awards. After Music City News ceased publication in 1999, Country Weekly assumed the role of presenting sponsor of the awards show in 2000. In 2001, the show began airing on CMT, where it was retooled and renamed to the CMT Flameworthy Video Music Awards in 2002. The name of the show was changed to CMT Music Awards in 2005.
