Jason Aldean is not only looking forward to attending his first-ever Grammy Awards as a nominee, he will also take the stage during the evening's broadcast. The 'Tattoos on This Town' singer joins Kelly Clarkson, Taylor Swift, Nicki Minaj, Foo Fighters and Bruno Mars in the first round of performers announced for the 54th Annual Grammy telecast on Sunday, Feb. 12.

Jason is nominated for three Grammys, for Best Country Duo/Group Performance ('Don't You Wanna Stay' with Kelly Clarkson), Best Country Album ('My Kinda Party') and Best Country Solo Performance ('Dirt Road Anthem'). But the multi-platinum-selling singer says actually taking home an award would be the icing on the cake.

"The Grammys are the biggest there is in music," he shared with CBS News. "My birthday's a couple weeks after that, so that's a pretty good month. That's my lucky month."

Taylor, a four-time Grammy winner, is also nominated for three more trophies, including one for Best Country Song, for 'Mean.' Other nominees include Eric Church, Lady Antebellum, Carrie Underwood and Blake Shelton.

The 54th Annual Grammy Awards will air live from Los Angeles' Staples Center, Feb. 12 at 8:00 PM ET on CBS. See the full list of nominees in all genres here.
