2017 CMA Awards Performers: Pink, Another All-Star Collaboration Announced
Pop star Pink, as well as a handful of country artists, have been added to the 2017 CMA Awards performers list. The Country Music Association has also revealed that the show will begin this year with an "unprecedented opening collaboration."
In addition to Pink, those newly added to the 2017 CMA Awards performance lineup include Tim McGraw and Faith Hill, and Keith Urban. All four artists are up for awards at the 2017 CMAs: Pink is nominated with Kenny Chesney -- though it is unclear if they will perform at the show together -- for Musical Event of the Year, the same category in which McGraw and Hill are nominated. Urban, meanwhile, is up for numerous awards in 2017, including Entertainer of the Year.
The newly revealed show-opening collaboration, meanwhile, will feature Eric Church, Lady Antebellum, Darius Rucker, Urban and more. Church was previously announced as a performer, but Lady A and Rucker are new additions to the lineup.
In addition to Church, previously announced 2017 CMA Awards performers include Garth Brooks, Miranda Lambert, Thomas Rhett, Carrie Underwood, Brothers Osborne, Luke Bryan, Alan Jackson, Little Big Town, Old Dominion, Jon Pardi and Chris Stapleton. Four special collaborative performances are also planned: Kelsea Ballerini and Reba McEntire, Dierks Bentley and Rascal Flatts, Maren Morris and Niall Horan and Brad Paisley and Kane Brown.
The 2017 CMA Awards are scheduled to air on ABC on Nov. 8, at 8PM ET; the ceremony will take place live at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. Paisley and Underwood will host the ceremony for the 10th year in a row.
