Hosted by "Falcon and the Winter Soldier" star Anthony Mackie and country singer Kelsea Ballerini, the April 11 ceremony aired live on CBS from Nashville, Tennessee. However, just hours before the ceremony, Ballerini shared she recently tested positive for COVID.

In an Instagram video, the 28-year-old revealed that the "CMT family" brought part of the set to her Nashville home so she could both host and perform virtually. "I am devastated, I am gutted," she shared. "But the good news is that I'm feeling a lot better."

While she was remote, there were still plenty of powerhouse performances to rock out to including Mickey GuytonCarrie UnderwoodMaren Morris and Ryan Hurd. The list of presenters was equally as stacked with stars like Faith HillGayle KingTaylor Lautner and LeAnn Rimes appearing.

When it came to this year's nominees, the talented list included a few fan favorites. In the category for video of the year, 12 nominees including Brandi Carlile, Cody Johnson, Cole Swindell & Lainey Wilson, Jason Aldean & Carrie Underwood, Kacey MusgravesKane Brown, Kelsea Ballerini (feat. Kenny Chesney), Luke Combs, Maren Morris, Mickey Guyton, Miranda Lambert and Taylor Swift (feat. Chris Stapleton) duked it out for the coveted trophy.

As for who led the night with the most nominations, that honor went to two-time winner Kane Brown. The "One Mississippi" singer, who also served as co-host for the awards ceremony in 2020 and 2021, earned four nods this year including video of the year, male video of the year and two nominations for CMT performance of the year (one for "Three Wooden Crosses" and another for his collab with Nelly, "Ride Wit Me.")
