2015 CMA Awards Presenters Announced
The CMA Awards is always a star-studded event, but it doesn’t just stop at country artists. Even actors and athletes want to get in on the action, and these celebrities are ready to make appearances as presenters at the 2015 ceremony alongside some of country’s most accomplished singers, songwriters and musicians.
The Country Music Association officially announced the full list of presenters, which includes Edie Brickell and Steve Martin, Brett Eldredge, Miss America 2016 Betty Cantrell, Reba McEntire, Jennifer Nettles, Keifer Southerland and several others.
This year's CMA Awards will also feature a host of performances from superstars and breakout newcomers like Chris Stapleton, Kelsea Ballerini, Kacey Musgraves, Zac Brown Band, Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert and more. The ceremony has a few unique collaborations lined up as well, including a cross-genre performance from Thomas Rhett and pop-rock band Fall Out Boy, Dierks Bentley with viral violinist Lindsey Sterling, Eric Church and legend Hank Williams Jr., McEntire and Vegas showmates Brooks & Dunn, and even Keith Urban with iconic singer-songwriter John Mellencamp.
The night is hosted by Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley for the eighth year in a row, and Paisley says he’s got a few easy targets in mind for topical jokes. The singers are known for their laid-back banter and song parodies based on current events (view some of their best here), making for some memorable moments each year.
The 2015 CMA Awards air live Nov. 4 at 8PM ET on ABC.
