According to an official announcement released last October 21, longtime awards favorite Eric Church will grace the show with his latest track “Heart on Fire” from his triple album, Heart & Soul. Church is at the top of the heap for this year’s ceremony with five nominations, including a repeat nod for Entertainer of the Year. Heart & Soul is also vying for Album of the Year.

Meanwhile, country newcomer Jimmie Allen is set to play his smash single “Freedom Was A Highway.” Blake Shelton will also be bringing in the country twang that turned him into a country favorite to perform his new single, “Come Back as a Country Boy.”

Everyone’s looking forward to this year’s special collaborations, too! First, there’s Mickey Guyton, who is definitely done convincing the country music industry that she is country. She will be performing at CMA Awards 2021 with rising stars Brittney Spencer, and Madeline Edwards with a song from her album Remember Her Name. Carly Pearce and Ashley McBryde will also flare up the stage with their powerful duet of “Never Wanted to Be That Girl.”

Fans of Dan + Shay fans can now rejoice as the duo was announced to perform a rendition of their hit single “I Should Probably Go To Bed.” On the other hand, Brothers Osborne are cooking up something special, who are slated to deliver a “deeply personal” performance from their album, Skeletons.

The CMA Awards 2021 will air live on Wednesday, November 10, 2021, at 8|7c on ABC. And we’re pretty sure you’re excited for your favorite country music musicians to grace the stage with their stellar performances. Additional CMA Awards 2021 performers are also expected to be announced as the big night approaches.
