Sugarland! Taylor Swift! Toby Keith! Join the CMT Awards live chat NOW!

June 16, 2009 |  8:00 am
This is it, country music fans. After tonight, it's a good five months until some country music awards will be handed out in prime time at the County Music Assn. Awards. So, before trophy withdrawal sets in, join Pop & Hiss for a live blog & chat Tuesday evening for the County Music Television Awards.

The fun begins at 8 p.m. East Coast time. But West Coasters -- don't get down. CMT hasn't forgotten our home state, and you can stream the awards live on the Web, ensuring you can watch the show while you make new online pals. The Envelope will bring you the red-carpet gallery, and after the show our awards site will compile the best and worst moments of the event. Additionally, our pal Tom O'Neil promises some country music fun over at his blog. (Say, speaking of, why not chat with us, Mr. Gold Derby? We contributed to your Tonys party.) 

Performers include Taylor Swift, Toby Keith, Brad Paisley, Sugarland, Keith Urban, Rascal Flatts and more. Questions abound: What will Taylor and T-Pain do? Can Def Leopard escape without a Bret Michaels-like injury? Is there anything Taylor Swift can do tonight that will prevent her from winning album of the year at next year's Grammys? 

We expect your burning questions to be better, and we look forward to answering them here. See you in a few hours.
