Charles Kelley to Fill-In for Lee Brice at the CMA Awards Night

0  comments

Despite last-minute changes, the CMA awards night is all set and promises to be the biggest country music festival this year. Carly Pearce was supposed to perform “I Hope You’re Happy Now” featuring a duet with fellow country artist Lee Brice. Unfortunately, Brice tested positive on Sunday making him unavailable for this week’s 2020 CMA awards. Since the show must go on, Lady A member Charles Kelley fills in the spot of Brice.

“I Hope You’re Happy Now” is Pearce and Brice’s top-charting duet who also got a nod in this year’s Musical Event of the Year nominees. Pearce, who stood as one of the co-writers of the hit single, got a nomination for Song of the Year.

Lee Brice

As soon as the news about Brice’s condition went out to the public, the country artist re-assured his fans and supporters that he is still in good shape. Brice is currently in quarantine at his home until his doctor would give him the word that he is all clear.

It is not just the CMA’s for Brice. He also has a release date to chase for his new album, “Hey World” which is set to drop on November 20. This will include “I Hope You’re Happy Now” which Pearce has already released as a single in 2019.

Charles Kelley

After finding a new gig as a performer and new duet partner for Carly Pearce, Charles Kelley will also be at the awards night for his group Lady A. They have been nominated for the 2020 CMA Awards ‘Vocal Group of the Year’  category. Lady A will also be performing in this year’s CMA Awards with co-host Darius Rucker to perform Rucker’s new single “Beers and Sunshine.”

After delivering the news about the last-minute changes for Lee Brice and Charles Kelley, the CMA drops more details for us to watch out for. They revealed that country star Chris Stapleton will take the stage on Wednesday’s broadcast. In addition, Lauren Alaina, radio DJ Boby Bones, Charles Esten, Sara Evans, Taylor Hill, Jake Owen, actor Patrick Schwarzenhegger and gospel singer CeCe Williams will all be included in this year’s star studded roster of performers.

The 2020 CMA Awards will air at 8 P.M. ET and will be taken live from Nashville’s Music City Center.
