faith hill cmas getty CMA Awards 2011: Faith Hill 'beyond psyched' to performOne of the first ladies of modern country music, Faith Hill is returning to the Country Music Association awards stage Wednesday night (Nov. 9) for the first time in five years.

“First time in five years that I’ve performed at the CMAs, so I am beyond psyched. I just had rehearsal yesterday and it felt great,” Hill tells an Ohio radio station.

Hill will be performing her new single “Come Home,” which is the first single off an album that she says will be out in early 2012. It will be her first studio album since August 2005.

Faith’s dress is a tricky look to pull off, but she still looks beautiful. Her hair is a little bit, but as Sandra Bullock says in “Miss Congeniality, big hair says, “Thank you very much for the Country Music award.” So we suppose that’s apropos.
