Swift will perform with Vince Gill and Alison Krauss, and Hayes will team up with singer-songwriter Jason Mraz. The most interesting pairing, however, will likely be the Zac Brown Band’s performance with Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl, a former member of Nirvana.
Previously-announced performers include Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Florida Georgia Line, Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town, Tim McGraw, Kacey Musgraves, Keith Urban and awards show co-hosts Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood.
Swift is nominated in six categories, including entertainer of the year, female vocalist and album of the year (for Red). She and Urban are also nominated for their collaboration on McGraw’s “Highway Don’t Care,” which is up for single, musical event and video of the year. She has won a total of seven CMA awards since her first honor — the Horizon Award — in 2007.
The Zac Brown Band, who won the CMA’s new artist of the year honor in 2010, are nominated for vocal group of the year in a category that also includes the Eli Young Band, MTVNLINK type=”artist” id=”2807105″>Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town and The Band Perry.
Airing live on ABC, the 47th annual CMA Awards will be presented Nov. 6 at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on ABC. Tickets to the show are sold out.
