I'm happy to announce Lady Antebellum have been added to the list of performers at this year's CMA Awards! The band, who just released their third album Own the Night, are nominated for CMA Vocal Group of the Year, which they've taken home the past two years in a row. The trio also picked up the trophy for Single of the Year last year for their smash hit, "Need You Now."
They join previously announced performances by Keith Urban, Taylor Swift, Blake Shelton, Jason Aldean and Brad Paisley. The 45th annual Country Music Awards will air live from Nashville's Bridgestone Arena on November 9th on ABC-TV beginning at 8pm ET.
Please share this news with your readers and as always, I'd greatly appreciate if you could send me coverage as it goes live on Contact Music.
