The COUNTRY MUSIC ASSOCIATION has announced the first round of artists and celebrities who will be presenters at the 45th annual CMA AWARDS. LAUREN ALAINA, DIERKS BENTLEY, BILLY CURRINGTON, JAKE OWEN, KELLIE PICKLER, REBA McENTIRE and LeANN RIMES have all been added to the lineup.
Singer/songwriter MATT NATHANSON will perform his new single “Run” with previously-announced performers SUGARLAND. They co-wrote “Run” and toured together earlier this year.
MERCURY RECORDS/NASHVILLE artist LAURA BELL BUNDY will host the pre-telecast award ceremony, where she will present awards to winner in the CMA awards categories as well as to all of the recipients of the CMA BROADCAST AWARDS.
The 45th annual CMA AWARDS will air live from NASHVILLE’s BRIDGESTONE ARENA on WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 9th at 8p (ET) on ABC-TV.
In other news, to kick off their two-year commitment to "KEEP THE MUSIC PLAYING," CHEVY has donated a 2012 CAMARO convertible which will be auctioned off to benefit the program. The hood of the CAMARO will be autographed by the celebrities that walk the Red Carpet prior to the show.
The CMA is also offering three video highlight packages beginning MONDAY, NOVEMBER 7th. Each package will be approximately 15 minutes and will be re-run, back-to-back, so media outlets have two different opportunities to downlink it.
