The first round of performers for the 2013 CMA Awards have been named, and there are some serious heavy hitters set to rock the show. The biggest announced names are Taylor Swift and “The Voice” judge Blake Shelton.
Joining them on the show will be Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert, Tim McGraw, Keith Urban and the band Little Big Town. Not bad for only the first announcement. It’ll be interesting to see what names they’re able to get for the second round of announcements.
The show will once again be hosted by Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood, their sixth time with the duties. The 2013 CMA Awards air live from Nashville on November 6 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
