Music City celebrated the successes of five of its own tonight as Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Miranda Lambert and Keith Urban were honored as this year’s CMT ARTISTS OF THE YEAR, while icon Merle Haggard received the inaugural “Artist of a Lifetime” Award. Simulcast on VH1 and hosted by Larry the Cable Guy, the five honorees were applauded by their peers and other superstars during an exclusive night of special performances and appearances in the 90-minute special broadcast live from Nashville’s Schermerhorn Symphony Center.

Honoree Jason Aldean appropriately kicked-off the night performing his latest single, “Just Gettin’ Started” alongside singer/songwriter and special guest Chris Cornell. Larry the Cable Guy, dressed for the first time ever in a black suit (paired with a baseball cap) then welcomed the crowd to officially get the party started.

Kenny Chesney presented an award to the first honoree of the evening, Jason Aldean. The pair will tour together for a round of stadium shows next summer. The five-time honoree thanked his family, fiancé, fans and especially CMT for being such a huge part of his career since the beginning. He also gave a special shout-out to buddy and fellow honoree Luke Bryan, who could not attend the event due to a death in his family.
