Pitbull has gone country…
The 35-year-old Cuban American rap superstar will take the stage at this year’s CMT Awards.
Organizers of the fan-voted awards show for country music videos and television performances are aiming for big collaborative moments this year.
So Pitbull — who appeared on Keith Urban‘s “Sun Don’t Let Me Down” earlier this year — and Leona Lewis will join forces with Cassadee Pope during the show.
Meanwhile, Dierks Bentley will perform with Elle King (the two duet on Bentley’s new album), Fifth Harmony teams up with Cam, Billy Ray Cyrus with Cheap Trick, Blake Shelton with the Oak Ridge Boys, and Keith Urban with both Brett Eldredge and Maren Morris.
Meanwhile, Carrie Underwood will perform “Church Bells,” which she performed at the ACMs and the ACCAs in April.
The CMTs air Wednesday, June 8, at 8:00 pm EST.
