Kelly Clarkson was on stage and on the red carpet for the 2018 CMT Music Awards, “country music’s biggest night”.
The awards show took place at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee, on June 6. Other performers for the evening included Blake Shelton (who works as a coach on “The Voice”, alongside Kelly Clarkson as a judge), Carrie Underwood, and Chris Stapleton.
Clarkson performed her cover of “American Woman”, which she recently recorded for the upcoming Paramount Network show of the same name starring Alicia Silverstone and Mena Suvari. The series debuts on June 7. Her impressive performance marked the first live debut for the song.
Underwood and Shelton both won major awards that night, with Underwood winning female video for “The Champion”, and Shelton won video of the year for “I’ll Name the Dogs”.
