The show will also feature special performances that will see country favorites team up with artists outside of the genre -- including Jason Derulo and Luke Bryan, the Chainsmokers and Florida Georgia Line, Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood, Peter Frampton and Brothers Osborne, and Earth, Wind & Fire and Lady Antebellum.
Jason Aldean, Darius Rucker, Lady Antebellum's Charles Kelley and Derek Trucks will also take place in a special tribute to Allman Brothers Band co-founder Gregg Allman, who died late last month.
The 2017 CMT Awards will air live on the network June 7 beginning at 8 p.m. and the red carpet festivities will be streamed on Facebook Live for the first time, starting at 7 p.m.
