CMT Hot 20 Countdown is a weekly live music video show that counts down the twenty most popular country music videos. The show features a live audience, in-studio performances, and interviews. It premiered January 5, 2013, on CMT[1] and airs Saturday and Sunday mornings. It replaced the long-running Top Twenty Countdown that aired from 2001–12 and is similar to CMT Most Wanted Live, which aired from 2001–04 and featured a live daily countdown.


The show is taped at Music City Tower in Nashville, Tennessee, along with viewer interaction through various social networking channels. The program features the standard format of a video countdown, interview, in-studio guest and feature segments.[2]

Voting is determined through both CMT management and viewers, as two pre-determined videos are listed for viewers to determine the vote. The #20 video is always new and determined by a 'keep or dump' vote by viewers.[3][4]
