Halsey is set to make her CMA Awards debut in a “genre-defying mashup” with Lady Antebellum. Old Dominion will perform “One Man Band,” and Rhett is slated to perform “Remember You Young.”

Previously, it was announced that Eric Church, Luke Combs, Miranda Lambert, Reba McEntire, Maren Morris, Dolly Parton with For King & Country and Zach Williams, Pink and Chris Stapleton, Carrie Underwood, and Keith Urban as the first performers for the 53rd annual CMA Awards in a press release on the morning of Oct 23, Wednesday.

Parton made a big splash by announcing her performance with For King & Country for an exciting gospel medley of “God Only Knows,” “There Was Jesus,” and a new song called “Faith,” a collaboration between the country queen and EDM giants Galantis.

Underwood is officially back in the wagon as one of the hosts of “Country Music’s Biggest Night,” and she’s not the only female powerhouse who’s going to be joining her! This will be her 12th year in a row hosting the prestigious award show.

On the stage will be two legendary icons in the country music genre! Apart from performing, Parton and McEntire will also serve as Underwood’s co-hosts.

The 53rd Annual CMA Awards will air live on ABC on Wednesday, November 13 at 8:00 p.m. ET.
