If you weren’t already excited for the 2021 CMA Awards, their list of performers will get you there in a hurry. If you can’t get enough of the biggest hitmakers on country radio today, you’re going to go nuts for this star-studded lineup. In fact, this might be one of the biggest and most varied bills you’ll see all year.

The Country Music Association calls their awards show Country Music’s Biggest Night. The 2021 CMA Awards are shaping up to be just that. The long list of performers contains Jimmie Allen, Eric Church, and Brothers Osbourne. That alone would make it a killer show. However, there are plenty more. Mickey Guyton will perform alongside Brittney Spencer. But wait, there’s more!

Ashley McBryde will perform at the awards show as well. She had to take some time off after a horseback riding injury, but she’s back in action. Madeline Edwards will bring her jazz-infused soul stylings to the 2021 CMA Awards show. Newly-inducted Gpry member Carly Pearce will be on that stage as well. She’s fresh off the release of 29: Written in Stone and has plenty to say, so her performance should be a show-stopper. Blake Shelton and Dan + Shay will also perform.

More Details about the 2021 CMA Awards Performances

Just seeing the lineup for the 2021 CMA Awards show is exciting. However, the CMA also released a partial setlist for the event. The artists involved are bringing their best new tracks to the stage for a live audience and viewers at home.

Jimmie Allen will perform his hit single “Freedom Was a Highway” at the show. Brothers Osbourne, who are nominated for three CMA Awards this year, will share songs from Skeletons. Eric Church will ignite the crowd with “Heart on Fire” from his Album of the Year-nominated Heart.

The 2021 CMA Awards will also feature some killer collaborations. Additionally, Mickey Guyton will team up with Brittney Spencer as well as Madeline Edwards to deliver a stirring performance of a song from Guyton’s album Remember Her Name. Additionally, Ashley McBryde and Carly Pearce will bring “Never Wanted to Be That Girl,” to the stage.

The list of performers and presenters at this year’s CMA Awards will continue to grow. The institution plans to announce more artists in the coming weeks. However, we shouldn’t have to wait long to find out who else will be there. The Luke Bryan-hosted 2021 CMA Awards airs November 10th at 8 pm Eastern Time on ABC. They’ll be broadcasting live from Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. This is one you’re definitely not going to want to miss.
