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. The show, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, will emanate from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, CA and is produced by dick clark productions, inc.

They join previously announced performers Beyonci, Mary J. Blige, Carrie Underwood, Dixie Chicks, Josh Groban, Nelly Furtado and Pussycat Dolls.

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

Winners of the American Music Awards are selected by the public. A national sampling of approximately 20,000, taking into account geographic location, age, sex and ethnic origin, will be sent ballots by the National Family Opinion, Inc. firm under the supervision of Broadcast Research and Consulting, Inc. Names of the nominees on the ballot were compiled from data supplied by the music industry trade publication, Radio & Records and Nielsen Soundscan, which tracks retail music sales. Results of the voting, tabulated by the Ernst & Young LLP accounting firm, are kept secret until envelopes are opened during the presentation ceremonies.
