Dierks Bentley, Little Big Town + More Join List of 2015 CMA Awards Performers
Four country superstars and a YouTube star have been added to a quickly growing list of 2015 CMA Awards performers. Florida Georgia Line, Little Big Town, Zac Brown Band and Dierks Bentley will take the Bridgestone Arena stage on Nov. 4. One will bring a special guest.
Electronic violinist Lindsey Sterling will join Bentley. She’s a YouTube sensation with over one billion video views and seven million subscribers. Her original videos showcase her skillful playing and experimental choreography, and she represents the first time the CMAs have tapped a YouTube celeb for the show.
It’s not clear which song FGL, Zac Brown Band and Little Big Town will perform, but “Girl Crush” seems likely for the 2014 CMA Vocal Group of the Year winners. It’s nominated for both Single and Song of the Year — Little Big Town lead all nominees with five nominations (six if you count Song of of they Year, a song they didn’t write).
Florida Georgia Line and ZBB have one nomination a piece, while Bentley is nominated in the Male Vocalist of the Year category.
Thus far 17 performances have been announced for the three-hour ABC telecast. Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood return to host for an eighth straight year, and both are slated to perform. Nominees for the Entertainer of the Year category include Garth Brooks, Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney, Eric Church and Miranda Lambert.
The 2015 CMA Awards air at 8PM ET on Nov. 4.
