It’s an American pay-TV channel that was launched in 1983. CMT, Country Music Television, was the first national channel devoted to country music and programing which included specials, biographies, and concerts about country music stars. Originally, it was just music but over time, the network’s programming expanded and it started broadcasting lifestyle and reality programs.
The network has deviated from music videos and majorly focuses on reality series. Current programming consists of lifestyle and reality shows alongside some general entertainment programming, which is unrelated to country music. The early morning and some night hours are dedicated to music videos comprising hit country songs.
