“We are thrilled to welcome this group of artists as part of our third season of CMT Campfire Sessions on digital,” said Melissa Goldberg, VP, Digital & Social Media, CMT. “Not only do they represent the breadth of the genre, but their talent of storytelling through song, especially in this fireside-format, creates a unique experience for the fans that is amazing to witness on screen.”

These stylistic enhancements serve to further connect the audience with their favorite stars while evolving the overall look and feel of the series.”
