Grammy Award-winning, singer-songwriter and number one selling artist, Jill Scott, is set to pay tribute to legendary singer-songwriter Shania Twain at this year's CMT Artist of the Year Awards.
Jill will be performing alongside Kelsea Ballerini & Meghan Trainor. You can watch the globally renowned singer-songwriter's performance October 20th at 9/8c on CMT from Nashville's Schermerhorn Symphony Center.
