Some exciting news for anyone who was at Stars & Guitars this year. Our friends over at CMT joined us for Stars & Guitars last month so they could film some segments for their popular “CMT Hot 20 Countdown” show. And the episode featuring our clips will air THIS WEEKEND!

CMT posted this fun teaser with Russell Dickerson this week. You might recognize that stage behind Russell and host Cody Alan.

Check out the special holiday themed Stars & Guitars episode of “CMT Hot 20 Countdown” this weekend, airing at 9 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

CMT is channel 327 on DirecTV, 166 on Dish, and 69 on Spectrum TV. Make sure to set your DVRs to record the episode if you can’t watch it at 9.
