When it comes to the CMA Awards, the only thing as anticipated as the trophies won is the musical acts that fire up the stage.
The Country Music Association is teeing up for their upcoming award show and have announced the first round of performers for "The 54th Annual CMA Awards." Hosts Reba McEntire and Darius Rucker will take the stage together for an emotional, groundbreaking tribute performance.
Eric Church, Miranda Lambert, Luke Combs, and Ashley McBryde are also set to take the stage, along with additional performances by Gabby Barrett feat. Charlie Puth, Florida Georgia Line, Maren Morris, Rascal Flatts, Thomas Rhett, Lady A, and Chris Tomlin.
"We are thrilled to have this incredible group of artists taking the stage at the CMA Awards this year! It is a privilege to bring these live performances to our viewing audience with the energy and excitement that the CMA Awards are known for," says Sarah Trahern, CMA Chief Executive Officer. "And although the show will feel a bit more intimate this year, we look forward to hosting our nominated artists and their guests as we celebrate the best of Country Music in a fully safe and physically distant environment. It will be an honor to bring the biggest Country stars in the world together – in one room – for the first time this year. You won't want to miss it!"
The 54th Annual CMA Awards air live from Nashville's Music City Center on November 11th.
