Tomorrow night CMT will air their annual Artists of the Year special to highlight the top five artists in country music over the past year. The hour and a half show will be hosted by southern funny man Larry the Cable Guy. This year’s honorees include Florida Georgia Line, Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Keith Urban, and Miranda Lambert. Each honoree will perform one of their biggest songs of the year and be honored for their acheivements over the past year. This is the perfect way to end the year for Aldean who failed to win an award at the CMA Awards this year despite having the second best first week sales of an album this year.
