MORE PERFORMERS ANNOUNCED FOR 'THE 50TH ANNUAL CMA AWARDS,' AIRING WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 2, ON THE ABC TELEVISION NETWORK

More superstar performers have been added to Country Music's Biggest Night(TM), including Kelsea Ballerini, Garth Brooks with Trisha Yearwood, Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town, Tim McGraw and Kacey Musgraves.

"The 50th Annual CMA Awards" will be hosted by Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood and broadcast live from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 2 (8:00-11:00 p.m. EDT), on the ABC Television Network.

Today's lineup joins artists previously announced, including Paisley and Underwood in addition to performances by Dierks Bentley, Eric Church, Maren Morris and Keith Urban.

"The CMA Awards will include moments that pay homage to our past 50 years, but it is also a celebration of the past 12 months and the artists and music that have resonated with the industry and our fans," said Sarah Trahern, CMA chief executive officer. "The lineup of performers is outstanding and represents the legacy of county music as well as our future."

Ballerini, who received her first CMA Awards nominations in 2015, received her second-time nods for both Female Vocalist and New Artist of the Year in 2016.

A member of the Country Music Hall of Fame, Brooks returns to the Entertainer of the Year category after being nominated in 2015 (he has won four times). He has a career total of 11 CMA trophies and 32 nominations. He will be performing a medley of beloved country classics with Trisha Yearwood.

Bryan, who is the reigning Entertainer of the Year, is nominated again in 2016 (he received his first nomination in the category in 2013). He is also nominated for Musical Event of the Year for "Home Alone Tonight," featuring Karen Fairchild of Little Big Town.

Florida Georgia Line has received seven CMA Awards nominations and four wins, including three consecutive trophies for Vocal Duo (2013-2015) and one for Single of the Year ("Cruise"). They are nominated for Vocal Duo in 2016.

Lambert, who is the most awarded female in CMA Awards history with 12 wins and 39 nominations, received a nomination for Female Vocalist of the Year (she is a six-time consecutive winner in the category).

Little Big Town is nominated for Vocal Group of the Year, an award they have won four times (2012-2015). The group has also won Single of the Year twice, including "Pontoon" in 2012 and "Girl Crush" in 2015.

McGraw, a 38-time CMA Awards nominee, received three nominations this year, including Male Vocalist; and Single and Music Video of the Year for "Humble and Kind." McGraw only receives one nomination for Single of the Year, but can receive an additional trophy as producer.

Musgraves, who won New Artist of the Year in 2013 and Song of the Year in 2014, is also nominated in 2016 for Female Vocalist of the Year.

Winners of "The 50th Annual CMA Awards" will be determined in a final round of voting by eligible voting CMA members. The third and final ballot closes Tuesday, October 25 (6:00 p.m. CDT). Ballots will be tabulated by the professional services organization Deloitte & Touche LLP.

"The 50th Annual CMA Awards" is a production of the Country Music Association. Robert Deaton is the executive producer, Paul Miller is the director and David Wild is the writer.
