Artists at the 2022 CMT Music Awards performed inside, outside, in the rain and upside down during the three-hour CBS broadcast. The show was anything but a typical country music awards show.

Keith Urban opened the show, and Kenny Chesney closed it. Both delivered very traditional awards show sets in front of their bands. In between, fans witnessed two doze, one-of-a-kind performances that celebrated traditional country music (Cody Johnson), diversity (Jimmie Allen, with Little Big Town and Monica) and true love (Maren Morris with husband Ryan Hurd). It was a night of surprises — none greater than when Carrie Underwood was lifted into the sky with a daring aerial routine.
