Set for June 12 at Nashville's Gaylord Entertainment Center, the inaugural CMT Flamworthy Video Music Awards will serve as the unofficial kick-off to the city's 31st annual Country Music Fan Fair festival.
Taking its name from a similarly titled CMT series, the awards will recognize music videos that have the "unique ability to make a lasting impact -- viewers hear it, see it, feel it, love it -- and it becomes flameworthy," according to a statement from the cable channel. Although nominees have not yet been announced, the network says fans will be able to vote for their favorite videos beginning April 16 through the CMT Web site.
Public tickets to the Flameworthy ceremony are set to go on sale Friday (March 15) beginning at 11 a.m. ET. Priced between $25 and $100, tickets will be available through the CMT site, Ticketmaster, and the Gaylord Entertainment Center box office.
The event will be produced by Bob Bain Productions, who has handled similar chores for the annual Billboard Music Awards and the Billboard Latin Music Awards, as well as the TV Guide Awards, the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards, the Teen Choice Awards, and television specials for Britney Spears and 'N Sync.
