Rising country star Mickey Guyton will be honored as the 2021 CMT Breakout Artist of the Year at the CMT Artists of the Year event to be held at Nashville’s Schermerhorn Symphony Center on October 13. The ceremony will air LIVE from 9p/8c on CMT.
“We are thrilled to honor the immensely talented Mickey Guyton as this year’s ‘Breakout Artist of the Year,” said Leslie Fram, Senior Vice President, Music & Talent, CMT. “After relentlessly chasing her dreams in country music for years, her perseverance, tenacity and spirit have culminated in this spectacular moment of recognition where she’s finally receiving the credit she deserves.”
2021 “CMT Artists of the Year” will return to its original format after adapting last year to honor inspirational Americans on the frontlines of the pandemic.
This year, Guyton will take the stage alongside previously announced 2021 honorees Chris Stapleton, Gabby Barrett, Kane Brown, Kelsea Ballerini, and Luke Combs.
The event will feature never-before-seen performances and collaborations, and congratulatory moments. Musical pairings, special guests, and additional performers and presenters will be announced in the coming weeks.
