If you went to bed early, you missed some of the best performances from the 2023 CMT Music Awards on Sunday (April 2). Two massive collaborations helped close the show, but two newcomers truly brought the crowd to its feet.

It's difficult to remember a country music awards show that included so many performers. Every song seemed to feature one, two or three artists. Some were country. Many weren't. Others you may never have even heard of, but it didn't matter.
