The 2024 CMT Awards is gearing up to celebrate the biggest night in country music — and has enlisted some major Hollywood stars to help do the honors.

The ceremony, which will take place on Sunday, April 7, at the Moody Center in Austin Texas, will see actors Amber Riley, Billy Bob Thornton, Emma Roberts, Minnie Driver, Emily Osment, Jane Seymour, James Van Der Beek, Max Theriot, Montana Jordan and Gayle King as presenters for the big night, Us Weekly can exclusively reveal.

Musicians will also be showing up to hand out trophies, including Melissa Etheridge, Mickey Guyton, Megan Moroney, Cody Johnson, Cody Alan, Parmalee and Paul Walter Hauser. Carly Pearce, who is up for Collaborative Video of the Year for “Cowboys And Plowboys” and Jelly Roll, whose song “Need a Favor” is nominated for Male Video of the Year, will also serve as presenters.

Kelsea Ballerini will return as host for the awards show, marking her fourth consecutive year as host and her first time as solo emcee after tag-teaming duties with Kane Brown in 2021 and 2023 and joining remotely in 2022.
