Randy Travis, Charlie Daniels added as CMA Awards performers

This will be Randy Travis’ second performance since 2013

Randy Travis, Charlie Daniels, Ricky Skaggs, Roy Clark, Clint Black, Jason Aldean, Jennifer Nettles, Martina McBride, Thomas Rhett, Chris Stapleton, Elle King, Pentatonix and Dwight Yoakam have all been added as performers to the 50th Annual CMA Awards.

“The 50th Annual CMA Awards will certainly reflect our history, but it is equally important to recognize our current nominees and the hits of today,” CMA Chief Executive Officer Sarah Trahern tells Parade.

Other superstars, including Alabama, Dierks Bentley, Garth Brooks with Trisha Yearwood, Brooks & Dunn, Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Florida Georgia Line, Vince Gill, Alan Jackson, Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town, Tim McGraw, Charley Pride, Reba, George Strait and Keith Urban, will take the stage, along with co-hosts Carrie Underwood and Braid Paisley.

This will be Travis’ second performance since suffering from a debilitating stroke in 2013. He made headlines last week when he performed “Amazing Grace” for the fist time since the stroke as he was honored at the Country Music Hall of Fame Medallion Ceremony.

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 2nd from 8-11 pm ET/PT on the ABC Television Network.
