That’s a Wrap: Little Big Town and Pharrell Bring Their “Wanderlust” to CMT Awards


Little Big Town and Pharrell Williams are the last pairing of performers to be announced for Wednesday’s 2016 CMT Music Awards.  The star of The Voice will join the reigning CMA and ACM Vocal Group of the Year to perform a song he produced from their new album, Wanderlust, which comes out Friday.

The LBT/Pharrell pairing is the latest cross-genre collaboration announced for the event, joining Cassadee Pope with Pitbull and Leona Lewis; Cam and Fifth Harmony; Dierks Bentley and Elle King; and Billy Ray Cyrus with Cheap Trick.

The previously announced list of performers is long:  Carrie Underwood, Chris Stapleton, Florida Georgia Line, Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Thomas Rhett, Blake Shelton and The Oak Ridge Boys, plus Keith Urban with Brett Eldredge and Maren Morris.

Kelsea Ballerini, Chris Janson, and Mike & Molly’s Billy Gardell will present, as will actor Chad Michael Murray, who stars in CMT’s upcoming Million Dollar Quartet. Charles Kelley, Cole Swindell, Dan+Shay, Kellie Pickler, Vince Vaughn and NASCAR’s Danica Patrick also are set to pass out trophies.

All the action starts Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET on CMT, live from Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena.
