TIM MCGRAW, VINCE GILL AND DAUGHTRY AMONG PERFORMERS ADDED TO THE LINEUP FOR "THE 43rd ANNUAL CMA AWARDS"

CMA announced additional performers today for "The 43rd Annual CMA Awards." Tim McGraw will perform for the first time in four years and Vince Gill will perform a duet with rock band Daughtry. New performers added to the lineup include Jason Aldean, Billy Currington, Lady Antebellum, Miranda Lambert and Zac Brown Band. "The 43rd Annual CMA Awards," hosted by Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood, will be broadcast live from the Sommet Center in Nashville, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 11 (8:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

Previously announced performers include Brooks & Dunn, Kenny Chesney, Reba McEntire, Paisley, Darius Rucker, George Strait, Sugarland, Taylor Swift, Underwood and Keith Urban.

McGraw last performed on the CMA Awards stage in 2005, when he joined wife Faith Hill on "Like We Never Loved At All." His last solo performance on the CMA Awards was in 2004, when he opened the show with "How Bad Do You Want It?" McGraw has won 11 CMA Awards, including, Entertainer (2001), Male Vocalist (1999) and Album of the Year (1998, 1999).

In their debut CMA Awards performance, Grammy-nominated rock band Daughtry joins Country Music Hall of Famer Gill for a duet of "Tennessee Line," which the superstars recorded together for Daughtry's new album, "Leave This Town." That album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart in July, becoming the group's second consecutive album to top the charts.

Gill has won 18 CMA Awards, including Entertainer (1993, 1994), Male Vocalist (1991-1995) and Album of the Year (1993, 1994). The singer/songwriter, who hosted the CMA Awards for 12 consecutive years (1992-2003), was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2007.

Aldean, who has a career total of two CMA nominations, recently celebrated topping the Billboard Top Country Singles chart for four weeks with his hit "Big Green Tractor." The song, which is from his album "Wide Open," also topped the "Billboard" all-genre ringtone chart, a first for a Country artist.

Currington earned two nominations this year, Single and Music Video of the Year, both for "People Are Crazy," from his album "Little Bit of Everything." Currington has a career total of three CMA nominations, as he was previously nominated in 2005 for Musical Event of the Year for his duet with Shania Twain on "Party for Two."

Reigning New Artist of the Year Lady Antebellum received two nominations in 2009. The trio is up for Vocal Group and Single of the Year for "I Run to You," produced by Victoria Shaw and Paul Worley, from their Platinum-certified self-titled debut album.

Lambert is nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year. The fiery performer has a career total of seven CMA nominations. Her new album "Revolution" recently debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Top Country Albums Chart. This accomplishment established Lambert as the third artist in the SoundScan era to have their first three albums debut at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums Chart.

Zac Brown Band received their debut three nominations in 2009 for New Artist, Vocal Group and Single of the Year for "Chicken Fried," from their Platinum-certified album, "The Foundation." Lead singer Zac Brown also received a fourth nomination as co-writer of "Chicken Fried" (along with Wyatt Durrette) in the Song of the Year category.

"The 43rd Annual CMA Awards" is a production of the Country Music Association. Robert Deaton is the executive producer, Paul Miller is the director and David Wild is the writer. The special will be shot in high definition and broadcast in 720 Progressive (720P), ABC's selected HDTV format, with 5.1 channel surround sound.
