CMT announced it will air a two-hour TV special, CMT Celebrates Our Heroes: An Artists of the Year Special, on June 3 at 7 p.m. CT.

The special will feature tributes and performances from some of country music’s biggest stars, including Brothers Osborne, Florida Georgia Line, Kelsea Ballerini, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, Miranda Lambert, Thomas Rhett and more. The lineup will perform from their own homes.

The show will highlight stories of unsung heroes who have done exceptional things for their communities during the COVID-19 pandemic. Personal stories of those who have positively impacted their community, state and nation can be submitted directly to CMT for potential inclusion in the special.

The CMT Celebrates Our Heroes: An Artists of the Year Special will be held in place of the traditional CMT Artists of the Year event, which honors the year’s top country artists with a live televised Nashville-based celebration.
