Carrie Underwood, Florida Georgia Line + More Added as 2013 CMA Awards Performers
Country music’s biggest night just got bigger with the addition of more performers, including Carrie Underwood and Florida Georgia Line. So not only will the evening be filled with fans ‘blown away’ by the talent onstage, they’ll also want to ‘stay’ until the last note is sung.
In addition to Underwood and FGL, rocker Eric Church, newcomer Kacey Musgraves and fan-favorite Brad Paisley are scheduled to perform in the very exciting lineup. Plus, in what will probably be a bittersweet performance, Alan Jackson and George Strait — the two top nominees in CMA Awards history — will perform together in a tribute to the legendary George Jones.
Performing can be incredibly nerve-wracking at an event of this scope, and the evening’s hosts, Underwood and Paisley, will certainly have their work cut out for them doing double duty as hosts and performers. Also an exciting addition to the lineup, FGL is sure to get the crowd in a frenzy as one of the biggest duos in country music right now.
Tickets for the 47th annual CMA Awards are officially sold out, marking the fifth year in a row the ceremony has sold out in advance and the earliest tickets have sold out ever — possibly due to the star-studded lineup thus far.
This latest round of artists join Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Little Big Town, Tim McGraw, Taylor Swift, Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton and Keith Urban as 2013 CMA Awards performers. Many of the country stars performed at last year’s event, and we can’t wait to see what new tricks are up everyone’s sleeves this year.
The 2013 CMA Awards will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 6 at 8PM ET on ABC.
