Publicist Credential Application
PUBLICIST CREDENTIAL APPLICATIONS FOR THE 2016 CMT MUSIC AWARDS
Publicists may apply for credentials now through June 4th for the 2016 CMT MUSIC AWARDS. Please carefully review the below before applying for credentials and note that we can only accommodate one publicist for each act who is nominated or appearing on the telecast.
AREAS OF ACCESS
The 2016 CMT Music Awards will again feature a star-studded red carpet to kick off the evening's festivities. CMT invites national and local media to cover the red carpet, which runs before the live show from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. CT on Wednesday, June 8.
WORKING PRESS ROOM:
In lieu of a traditional awards show press room, CMT will provide a designated area for media interested in working throughout the live telecast. Media are invited to watch the show, live blog, file stories and download images in this space. The Working Press Room will not provide opportunities for talent interviews, still photography or b-roll footage. Interviews should be conducted on the red carpet.
Can my artist walk the red carpet?
All performers, presenters and nominated artists should participate in the 2016 CMT Music Awards Red Carpet.
For any additional talent requests, artists must meet all of the following criteria in order to walk the carpet:
