Kelsea Ballerini has tested positive for Covid-19 and will do her hosting duties and performance from her home.
Kane Brown will step in to handle in-person duties.
Kelsea posted a video on social media explaining, I have some bad news and good news. The bad news is that a couple days ago I tested positive for Covid-19 and the CMT Awards are tonight so unfortunately I can not be there in person.
The good news I am feeling a lot better and the incredible CMT family and my team have brought part of the CMT set to my house and set it up where I can still host and perform.
The show airs tonight at 7pm on CBS
