The award show will air live at 8 p.m. ET on CBS and will stream on Paramount+. Voting is now open at vote.cmt.com.

Speaking to PEOPLE about her fourth year hosting the award show, the "Penthouse" singer opened up about her feelings going into it solo for the first time.

"It's definitely new grounds for me," she told PEOPLE. "But it's my fourth year hosting, so I feel like I've learned a lot. And the good thing about CMTs is there's such a light energy, so there's not a pressure that I feel to be perfect. I just want to be fun, honor the night and help people have a good time."

After three years of co-hosting with Kane Brown, Ballerini said she may tap her friends to join her during the three-hour show.

"It's really a big reunion and everyone wants to hang out, so I might just ask for some help where I can get it," she added.
