The 2013 CMA Awards are turning into an all-day affair.

Luke Bryan will kick off the celebration with a morning performance on ABC’s ‘Good Morning America’ outside of Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena, where the evening ceremony will be held. The singer will also join the show’s host, Robin Roberts, in announcing two winners, but those categories have not yet been revealed.

“We are going to kick-start the CMA Awards early in Nashville on Nov. 6 and I hope everyone comes to join us,” Bryan says. “We will be partying as the sun comes up! Can’t wait.”

Bryan, who will also perform during the live televised broadcast at night, is nominated for three awards, including the night’s biggest honor, Entertainer of the Year. The singer, who is also the reigning ACM Entertainer of the Year, says winning that award has always been his goal.

“When I moved to Nashville, I knew that I wanted to be the Entertainer of the Year at some point,” he tells The Boot. “That’s just how I moved to town thinking. It’s not because I want people to open doors for me, that’s just what I wanted to be. I wanted to work for it.”

The 47th annual CMA Awards, which will once again be hosted by Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley, will air live on ABC at 8PM ET on Nov. 6.
