The network's fourth logo made its debut on air in 1991, and ran until 2004. The first version of the logo consisted of a red "C", a yellow "M", and a blue "T", all in black squares, similar to a child's alphabet blocks, and was often seen in various color schemes in Station ID's. In 1997, a "GENUINE" stamp was added to the logo. Its colors were swapped in 2000 by MTV.
CMT's headquarters are located in offices in downtown Nashville, Tennessee.
