The Country Music Association just revealed another round of performers ahead of next week’s 54th Annual CMA Awards.
Jason Aldean, Jimmie Allen, Ingrid Andress, Dierks Bentley, Brothers Osborne, Dan + Shay with Justin Bieber, Jenee Fleenor, Little Big Town, Old Dominion, Jon Pardi, Carly Pearce and Lee Brice, Keith Urban, and Morgan Wallen are confirmed to take the stage during “Country Music’s Biggest Night.” They join previously announced performers Gabby Barrett and Charlie Puth, Eric Church, Luke Combs, Florida Georgia Line, Miranda Lambert, Ashley McBryde, Maren Morris, Rascal Flatts and Thomas Rhett with Reba McEntire, Hillary Scott and Chris Tomlin. Co-hosts Reba McEntire and Darius Rucker (with Lady A) are also set to perform.
“We couldn’t be more excited to bring all of these incredible performances to life next Wednesday night and give our artists the chance to come together, in a big way, on television for the first time in months,” says Robert Deaton, CMA Awards Executive Producer. “As safety is our top priority, we have worked tirelessly over the past several months to fully transform Music City Center into a breathtaking setup that resembles the very first ‘CMA Awards Banquet & Show’ from 1967, and ensures our nominees, performers and their guests a fully safe and physically distant environment. We are honored, in this very challenging time, to help provide an escape and deliver a live awards show experience unlike any other this year.”
The Country Music Association also revealed that the star-studded broadcast will open with a tribute to the late Charlie Daniels, featuring Brothers Osborne, McBryde, Aldean, Bentley and reigning CMA Musician of the Year Fleenor.
As previously reported, the 54th Annual CMA Awards will mark the first time that the artists will safely come together in one room this year.
“Country Music’s Biggest Night” will take place live from Nashville’s Music City Center Wednesday, Nov. 11 (8:00-11:00 PM/ET) on ABC.
