Aldean was nominated for the CMA Horizon Award in 2007, and again in 2008 when it was renamed the New Artist of the Year Award. His new album, My Kinda Party, is in-stores tomorrow.

This will be Clarkson's first performance on "Country Music's Biggest Night´┐Ż." She was nominated for CMA Musical Event of the Year in 2007 for her duet with Reba, "Because of You," which the two artists also performed at CMA Music Festival earlier that year.
