Maren Morris and Gabby Barrett have pulled out of their performing slot on tonight's (Wednesday, June 9th) CMT Music Awards. Both broke the news to fans on social media, with Gabby citing “personal circumstances” and Maren stating a scheduling conflict, however Maren's post has since been deleted.
The two acts have since been replaced, according to Billboard. Ingrid Andress is now teaming up with Canadian pop star JP Saxe to perform “Line by Line,” which JP and Maren released earlier this year, and Lindsey Ell will take Gabby's place in a performance with Lady A and Carly Pearce.
Maren originally wrote in her Instagram stories, “Due to a scheduling conflict, I will not be performing at the CMT Music Awards on Wednesday. I know @jpsaxe will slay it and I am so excited for his album to come out soon!”
Gabby wrote, “I’m really sad to share that because of personal circumstances I won’t be able to perform with @ladya and @carlypearce on Wednesday at the @cmt Music Awards! I’ll be rooting for you guys and all of the incredibly talented nominees and performers! So appreciate all of your support and will see yall on the road this summer :)”
Maren and Gabby are both nominees at the show tonight, which airs at 8 p.m. ET and will be co-hosted by Kelsea Ballerini and Kane Brown.
