Taylor Swift will perform “Begin Again,” a new song from her highly-anticipated Red album on the 45th annual CMA Awards, ABC reports. The romantic ballad is about a first date with a new guy who does everything right that the last guy did wrong. Joining Taylor in coveted performance slots on the Nov. 1 broadcast are Eli Young Band, Brantley Gilbert, Lady Antebellum, Blake Shelton, Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney, Eric Church, Kelly Clarkson, Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town, Brad Paisley, the Band Perry, Carrie Underwood and Zac Brown Band.

Lisa Marie Presley, who made her Grand Ole Opry debut back in August, has revealed to Country Weekly that she will attend the CMA Awards. It’s not known whether she has been asked to present. The Country Music Association will likely announce its list of presenters from the music, TV and movie worlds in the coming days. (We’re guessing — and hoping — that some stars from the hit ABC show “Nashville” will be on that list!)

The 46th annual Country Music Association Awards will air live from Nashville on Nov. 1 at 8:00 PM ET on ABC. For the fifth year in a row, the show will be hosted by Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood. Eric Church leads this year’s nominees. See a full list of 2012 CMA nods here.
