CMT's annual Artists of the Year show is back with a special event for 2020. CMT Celebrates Our Heroes will go live later this week to recognize Americans from across the country who are on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic with a two-hour celebration and tribute event unlike any other.

Some of Country music's biggest stars will be performing at the event, so it's certainly not a night to be missed. From Brothers Osborne and Florida Georgia Line to Kelsea Ballerini, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, and Miranda Lambert, the list goes on. Each of the performances will be filmed directly from the artists' homes and virtually produced by CMT to keep everything looking and sounding great.

Live stream CMT Celebrates Our Heroes in the U.S.

While there are a few streaming services that offer access to watch CMT live, Sling TV should be the first service you try out. It's one of the most affordable streaming services in the U.S. — especially with its latest offer that lets you join and score your first month for only $20. Plans normally start at $30 monthly. Sling offers CMT streaming access through the Comedy Extras add-on plan which is an additional $5 per month.

Alternatively, since the Paramount Network is airing the show at the same time, the standard Sling Blue plan would suffice as it includes the Paramount Network without needing any add-on packages.
