NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Eric Church, Miranda Lambert, Maren Morris, Luke Combs and more will take to the stage at the CMA Awards in November.

The country music awards show promised that the genre’s biggest stars will be together in one room again for the first time since the COVID-19 outbreak. The show airs on ABC on November 11 from the Music City Center.

“While the show will feel a little more intimate this year, we look forward to welcoming our nominated artists and their guests as we celebrate the best of country music in a completely safe and physically remote environment,” said Sarah Trahern, CEO of the Country Music Association made a statement.

Lambert, the lead nominee with seven nominations, including Entertainer of the Year, will play “Settling Down” from her album of the year nominated record “Wildcard”. Combs will be nominated co-entertainer of the year for ‘Cold As You’ and Morris will sing her hit nominated song ‘The Bones’.

Co-hosts Reba McEntire and Darius Rucker will pay tribute together, while Rucker will also perform his new single “Beers & Sunshine” with Lady A.

Gabby Barrett will be joined by pop singer Charlie Puth for a duet on her nominated song ‘I Hope’. Thomas Rhett will play ‘Be a Light’ with McEntire, Lady A’s Hillary Scott and Christian artist Chris Tomlin.

Other announced artists include Ashley McBryde, Rascal Flatts and Florida Georgia Line.
