The CMT Awards 2018 will be broadcast Wednesday with Carrie Underwood, Florida Georgia Line, and Jason Aldean all up for four awards each, according to E! News.

The popular country music awards show will be held at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, where the top performers in the genre gather annually, per E! News.

"Hosted by Little Big Town, the event is country music's only entirely fan-voted award show and will feature performances by Blake Shelton, Chris Stapleton, Kelly Clarkson, Backstreet Boys, Carrie Underwood, Dan + Shay, Florida Georgia Line, Kelsea Ballerini, and Sam Hunt," CMT said on its website.

"The star-studded event will also showcase country icon Dierks Bentley collaborating with Brothers Osborne, as well as Darius Rucker featuring Charles Kelley, Jason Aldean, and Luke Bryan," the statement continued.

Billboard magazine noted that the coveted video of the year category will carry plenty of intrigue with pop artist Justin Timberlake and Bebe Rexha up for awards for their collaborations with country stars Chris Stapleton and Florida Georgia Line, respectively.
