ABC stars Eva Longoria, James Denton, Cameron Mathison, Kimberly Williams-Paisley and Disney�s Billy Ray and Miley Cyrus were announced today as presenters on �The 40th Annual CMA Awards,� to be telecast MONDAY, NOVEMBER 6 (8:00-11:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.

They join an all-star roster of presenters who will hand out trophies to Country Music�s elite that includes Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora of CMA Awards-nominated group Bon Jovi, �American Idol� alum Kellie Pickler, LeAnn Rimes and two-time CMA Entertainer of the Year Barbara Mandrell.

Golden Globe-nominated actress Eva Longoria can be seen every week as Gabrielle Solis on ABC�s smash hit, �Desperate Housewives.� The international spokesperson for Loreal, Longoria co-starred in �The Sentinel,� starring Michael Douglas, Kiefer Sutherland and Kim Basinger. She also co-stars in the upcoming indie feature film �Harsh Times� with Christian Bale and Freddie Rodriguez, slated to be released in November 2006.

Nashville native James Denton can be seen as sexy plumber Mike Delfino on ABC�s �Desperate Housewives.� Denton, along with the rest of the cast, was honored with the 2005 and 2006 SAG Award for Best Ensemble in a Comedy, and he was named as one of People magazine�s �Sexiest Men Alive� in 2004 and 2005. He also starred in �The Pretender� and ABC�s �Philly,� along with guest appearances in �JAG,� �Dark Skies,� �Ally McBeal� and �The West Wing,� and hosted the �Miss America Pageant� held in Las Vegas last year.

Playing Ryan Lavery, a fan-favorite on �All My Children,� Mathison received the Soap Opera Digest Award for Outstanding Male Newcomer in 1999, and received a Daytime Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor in 2002. Mathison made his feature film debut in the 1998 Miramax release, �54,� and other credits include appearances on �The Drew Carrey Show,� �CSI� and �JAG.�

Kimberly Williams-Paisley can be seen as Dana on ABC�s hit comedy �According to Jim.� She lit up the screen with her film debut as the radiant young bride in the comedy features, �Father of the Bride� and �Father of the Bride II.� Though it�s her first time presenting, Williams-Paisley is no stranger to the CMA Awards. She will be rooting for husband Brad Paisley, who is up for six nominations, bringing his career total to a record breaking thirty-three nominations.

Disney Channel fans know and love Country Music star and actor Billy Ray Cyrus and his daughter as stars of the hit show, �Hannah Montana.� On the show, Miley plays a regular girl named Miley Stewart who leads a secret double life as pop singer Hannah Montana, with Billy Ray playing Robby, her songwriting father and manager. Billy Ray won a CMA Award for Single of the Year in 1992 for his smash hit, �Achy Breaky Heart.�

Additional artists and presenters will be added to the lineup and announced at a later date. �The 40th Annual CMA Awards� airs live from the Gaylord Entertainment Center in Nashville.
