CMT has announced a new televised music event celebrating groundbreaking women of music.
The network said the television special, ‘”CMT SMASHING GLASS: A Celebration of the Groundbreaking Women of Music,” is an all-new, genre-defying musical salute to the incomparable women who smashed stereotypes, broke records and defiantly blazed trails for future generations of female artists.
“CMT SMASHING GLASS” will premiere on November 15 at 9p/8c on CMT, honoring Patti LaBelle and Tanya Tucker.
The new program will fuse unforgettable performances with documentary storytelling. Artists inspired by Tucker and LaBelle will pay tribute to the women before the honorees take the stage for their own performances.
The CMT music special will also pay tribute to the late Aretha Franklin, Sinead O’Connor and Tina Turner with memorial medleys.
Additional performers and special guests will be announced in the coming weeks.
An all-female production team leads “CMT SMASHING GLASS.” CMT‘s Senior Vice President of Production, Music & Events Margaret Comeaux and 21st Floor Productions’ Patrizia DiMaria, Michelle Mahoney and Lauren Quinn are executive producers. Quinn also serves as director.
