The CMT Music Awards are Wednesday night and it's bound to keep us all entertained.

The show, which will air live from Nashville, is hosted by Kane Brown and Kelsea Ballerini and some of country's biggest names are set to take the stage.

Where to watch

You really won't be able to miss the show because it's airing on several networks. You can catch it at 8 p.m. ET on CMT, MTV, Paramount and TV Land and it will start streaming on CMT.com June 10.

Who's hitting the stage

Chris Stapleton, H.E.R., Carrie Underwood, Dierks Bentley, Chris Young, Luke Combs, Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert, Thomas Rhett and many more will be performing.

Nominees

Lambert and Maren Morris lead the way with four nominations each. Rhett, Keith Urban, Halsey and Brothers Osborne are also among those nominated. When it comes to the coveted Video of the Year Award it's a tight race between Underwood and John Legend for "Hallelujah," Kenny Chesney for "Knowing You," Keith Urban and Pink for "One Too Many," Ballerini for "Hole in the Bottle," Brown for "Worldwide Beautiful," and Elle King and Lambert for "Drunk (And I Don't Wanna Go Home)." Also, Linda Martell, a Black country music pioneer, will be honored with the CMT Equal Play Award.

If it's up, then it's up, then it's up, then it's stuck — in your head. Say what you will about Cardi B, but she knows how to make hits that breathe their own air and make their own space in the culture, and she's got no problem releasing them one at a time (see last summer's "WAP"), album cycles be damned. "Up" is catchy, colorful and motivational, and works just as well in the background at a summer cookout (depending on who's around, you may want to opt for the clean version) or at the gym. (Explicit lyrics, to say the least.)

Can an entire album be the Song of the Summer? Teen-pop sensation Olivia Rodrigo is making a pretty good argument for the case, with her full debut album "Sour" blanketing the charts since its release last month. This punk-pop kiss-off is the current favorite to rule the airwaves — we still need justice for "deja vu," the overlooked middle child between this and "driver's license," but that's another story — which is part of a popular resurgence of guitars (remember those things?) which also includes recent hits by MGK and Willow Smith. Progress!

It doesn't matter what the calendar says; Lorde says it's summer, so it's summer. The New Zealand mood-pop sensation returned last week with this light, airy, upbeat celebration of the sun, which nods to A Tribe Called Quest ("can I kick it? Yeah, I can!" Lorde says, sounding, gulp, happy) and is genetically engineered by producer Jack Antonoff to get the summer party rolling. You have no choice but to submit.
