TAYLOR SWIFT TO PERFORM OPENING SONG ON "THE 43rd ANNUAL CMA AWARDS"

Additional Acoustic Performance to Follow

Only two days away, yet the excitement continues to grow for "The 43rd Annual CMA Awards." It was announced today that four-time nominee Taylor Swift will deliver the opening performance.

A second, acoustic performance will follow later in the show. "The 43rd Annual CMA Awards," hosted by Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood, will be broadcast live from the Sommet Center in Nashville, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 11 (8:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

Swift, who won the Horizon Award in 2007, received four nominations this year with Entertainer, Female, Album for "Fearless," and Music Video for "Love Story." She could receive a second trophy for producing "Fearless" with Nathan Chapman. At age 19, Swift is the youngest artist ever to be nominated for Entertainer. Prior to this nomination, Wynonna was the youngest at age 22, when The Judds were first nominated in that category in 1986. Swift is also the first solo female artist to be nominated for Entertainer since 2000, when Faith Hill was nominated. The last solo female artist to win the category was Shania Twain in 1999.

In addition to Swift, performers already announced include Jason Aldean, Brooks & Dunn, Kenny Chesney and Dave Mathews, Billy Currington, Vince Gill and Daughtry, Kid Rock and Jamey Johnson, Lady Antebellum, Miranda Lambert, Martina McBride, Reba McEntire, Tim McGraw, Brad Paisley, Darius Rucker, George Strait, Sugarland, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban and Zac Brown Band.
