Dierks Bentley, Miranda Lambert, Gwyneth Paltrow and rapper/actor Drake are among the first presenters announced for the 54th Annual Grammy Awards. Miranda is the Recording Academy’s reigning Female Country Vocalist, having taken home the trophy for ‘The House That Built Me’ last year.

As previously announced, Jason Aldean will perform with Kelly Clarkson during the show, while Glen Campbell joins the Band Perry and Blake Shelton on stage. Taylor Swift will also perform on the show.

The country performers are also well represented on the ballots. Jason is up for three Grammys: Country Duo/Group Performance (‘Don’t You Wanna Stay’ with Kelly Clarkson); Country Album (‘My Kinda Party’); and Country Solo Performance (‘Dirt Road Anthem’). Taylor is also nominated for three awards: Country Album (‘Speak Now’), Country Solo Performance (‘Mean’); and Country Song (‘Mean’).

Additionally, Blake has two nods in the Country Solo Performance (‘Honey Bee’) and Country Album (‘Red River Blue’) categories. The Band Perry are nominated for the all-genre Best New Artist award, against Bon Iver, J. Cole, Nicki Minaj and Skrillex.

Prior to the telecast, Glen Campbell is among the individuals being honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award by the Recording Academy. The accolade is given to individuals who have made “contributions of outstanding artistic significance to the field of recording.” Glen’s fellow country legend George Jones will also be honored at the Feb. 11 invitation-only ceremony, as will the Allman Brothers Band, Diana Ross, Antonio Carlos Jobim, the Memphis Horns and Gil Scott-Heron.

The 54th Annual Grammy Awards will air live from Los Angeles’ Staples Center on CBS at 8:00pm ET.
