On Wednesday June 7, the CMT Awards air at 8 p.m. ET on (what else?) CMT. With major country music names like Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton, and Florida Georgia Line performing and collaborating alongside Jason Derulo, The Chainsmokers, and Peter Frampton―and Nashville‘s Charles Esten hosting―the event’s secured big-name talent to make us want to tune in. But for further proof that the show’s worth watching, we need only look back at its track record from years past of outrageous outfits, standout performances, and captured-on-camera exchanges.
