Keith Urban, John Mellencamp Uniting for 2015 CMA Awards Performance
Just when you thought the 2015 CMA Awards couldn't get any better, Keith Urban made an amazing announcement. Not only with the country singer perform on Country Music's Biggest Night, he'll be joined onstage by none other than John Cougar himself!
Urban revealed the exciting news via social media, though he didn't explicitly say which tune the pair will perform together. Urban's latest No. 1 song, "John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16," would be fitting, since the Cougar he's referring to is John Mellencamp. However, they could throw a curveball and surprise fans with another song — perhaps one of Mellencamp's classics?
The lineup of performers for the 2015 CMA Awards was already stacked, with Eric Church and Hank Williams Jr. opening the show together, followed by a collaboration between Thomas Rhett and pop-rockers Fall Out Boy. Kelsea Ballerini, Maddie & Tae, Kacey Musgraves and Miranda Lambert will also take the stage and blow the live audience away during this night.
Once again, funny duo Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley will be hosting the event — their eight year together! The 49th Annual CMA Awards will air live Nov. 4 on ABC at 8PM ET, straight from Music City's Bridgestone Arena.
