Why cann't Viacom just leave well enough alone?
Building on CMT's rich heritage, CMT Pure Country delivers uninterrupted country music around the clock. Replacing the existing VH1 Country channel, CMT Pure Country will feature the sounds and images of country music in its most essential form, performed by the genre's most authentic voices.
To celebrate the launch, CMT will pre-empt its regular programming to air all CMT Pure Country programming on Monday (May 29) from 6 a.m.-1 p.m. ET. Beginning June 4, CMT will also debut its new one-hour music block, CMT Pure Country, airing each Sunday at 9 a.m. ET.
