The event is a country music gathering of the year’s biggest artists. But who will make this year’s star-studded list?
For the first time since the AOTY’s inaugural show in 2010, CMT is keeping the names of this year’s artists hush-hush until the event airs.
Previous recipients of the honor include Jason Aldean, Kenny Chesney, Lady Antebellum, Brad Paisley, Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood, and Zac Brown Band.
Catch the 2012 CMT Artists of the Year special December 8th at 11 Eastern and Pacific only on CMT.
