Country Music Television, or CMT, is an American country music-oriented cable television network. Programming includes music videos, taped concerts, movies, biographies of country music stars, game shows, and reality programs. CMT is owned and operated by MTV Networks, a subsidiary of Viacom. CMT was launched on March 5, 1983 at 6:19 PM CST,[1] created and founded by Glenn D. Daniels and uplinked from the Video World Productions facility in Hendersonville, Tennessee. Daniels put together the investor group of Telestar Corporation and the penny stock company Blinder and Robinson in a 3-way ownership split. Glenn D. Daniels was the creator, founder, Program Director and first President of the network, originally called CMTV but always "Country Music Television." (The "V" was dropped in response to a complaint by competitor MTV). CMT beat its chief competitor, The Nashville Network (TNN), on the air by two days. CMT was positioned to play country music videos 24 hours a day, seven days a week, while TNN was geared toward programming lending itself to a "country lifestyle". The very first video clip to air on CMT was a performance clip of country music legend Faron Young's classic hit, "It's Four in the Morning".

1 They play Frasier reruns now. That is about the furthest thing from country music that I can think of! -- Submitted By: (TomPettyFan) on November 6, 2018, 1:26 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Thanks to whoever put in "Reality Shows" for a vote! How are "Extreme Makeover: Trash That House" and "Nanny 911" COUNTRY, huh????? Looks like CMT will go the way of another old Viacom station, TNN (they became Spike in 2003). -- Submitted By: (SVN) on August 28, 2009, 6:16 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
