Grupo Abril, after a successful partnership with Viacom on the first Brazilian incarnation of MTV, established the Brazilian version of CMT in 1993, on the line-up of its satellite TV provider, TVA Digisat.
In February 2001, the channel was renamed "MusicCountry", after Abril sold its share of CMT Brasil to Gaylord Entertainment, co-owner of the channel and former owner of its US counterpart, sold to CBS several years earlier.
MusicCountry was sold to STC Networks, and was renamed as "STC - The Sountrack Channel".
