ADDITIONAL PERFORMERS SET FOR "2006 AMERICAN MUSIC AWARDS"

Rascal Flatts, Tenacious D and Snow Patrol Among Those Added to Lineup

The chart-topping country trio Rascal Flatts has sold more albums in 2006 than any musical act in any genre. The two-time AMA nominee will wrap their "Me and My Gang" tour in early November and perform on the "2006 American Music Awards," airing live TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 21 (8:00-11:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.

In addition, platinum recording artists Tenacious D, whose film, "Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny," will open the day after their American Music Awards performance, will take the stage to perform "Pick of Destiny" from their new album. UK import Snow Patrol, whose "Eyes Open" album has proved a huge success on both sides of the Atlantic, will also join the lineup.

Additional performers and presenters will be announced in the coming weeks.
