Additional performers announced for the CMA Awards

The lineup for one of country music’s biggest nights gets better and better following the announcement of additional performers for the 48th annual CMA Awards. Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood will host for the seventh consecutive year and they will also each perform during the show which takes place from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. Paisley is among the top CMA Award winners of all time, with 14 trophies and 58 career CMA Awards nominations. He is a former CMA Entertainer of the Year (2010) and three-time CMA Male Vocalist of the Year (2007-2009), with multiple wins in the Music Video and Musical Event of the Year categories. Paisley’s first CMA Award came in 2000 when he won the Horizon Award, now known as New Artist of the Year. A three-time CMA Female Vocalist of the Year (2006-2008), Underwood is again nominated in that category in 2014, as well as Music Video and Musical Event of the Year with Lambert for ‘Somethin’ Bad.’ Underwood is a five-time CMA Awards winner with 21 career CMA Awards nominations. She has been nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year every year since her first nomination in 2006 (2006-2014). Joining Paisley and Underwood to perform will also be three of country music’s biggest bands – Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, and The Band Perry. Previously announced performers include Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton, and Keith Urban. Tickets for the CMA Awards are officially sold out, marking the sixth year in a row the ceremony has sold out in advance. Winners of the CMA Awards will be determined in a final round of voting by eligible voting members of the Country Music Association.
