Watch Chris Young's Touching Tribute to Kane Brown's Drummer Kenny Dixon

This year’s 10th Annual CMT Artists of the Year special highlighted the entire year of country music, and specifically honored a few of country music's biggest artists: Carrie Underwood, Dan + Shay, Kane Brown, Luke Combs and Thomas Rhett.

Chris Young took time to talk about the tragic passing of drummer Kenny Dixon. Kenny was involved in a fatal car crash in Christiana, Tennessee, on Oct. 12. He was just 27-years-old. Young performed this touching tribute song, "Drowning" in honor Kenny, who was a drummer for Kane Brown. Rest in Peace, Kenny. The country community will never forget you. Please keep his family and friends in your thoughts and prayers.
