Last night’s (4/11) 2022 CMT Music Awards was full of great performances; in fact, the show was dominated by performances. Only a handful of awards were presented on live TV.

With so many performances to choose from, it wasn’t easy, but we narrowed down what we believe were the top seven performances at this year’s show.

  • 7. Cody Johnson "Till You Can't"

    Cody commanded the stage with this performance showing fans just why we love country music.

  • 6. Kelsea Ballerini "Heartfirst"

    Even from her backyard, this performance from Kelsea Ballerini of her new song was amazing!

  • 5. Maren Morris and Ryan Hurd "I Can't Love You Anymore"

    The stage presence of this married couple is what love is all about. They are so cute together and debuted this new song with perfection.

  • 4. Kane Brown "One Mississippi"

    Kane may not have won Video of the Year for “One Mississippi” but his performance of the song for a crazy crowd on the streets of downtown Nashville was award-worthy itself.

  • 3. Jimmie Allen, Monica and Little Big Town "Pray"

    This collaboration performance with everyone dressed in white was epic and a highlight of the entire show.

  • 2. Miranda Lambert "If I Was A Cowboy"

    Everything down to her pink cowboy hat made Miranda’s performance of her latest single great. Performing outside with her band, Lambert glowed with her neon green frill.

  • 1. Carrie Underwood "Ghost Story"

    Carrie’s Las Vegas performance of her new single “Ghost Story” was one for the books landing her at number one on our performance list. From the aerial stunts, she did while singing to the glowing white outfit she was wearing.
