Here Are the Artists Performing & Presenting on the 2018 CMA Awards


Nashville's finest and boldest voices will ring out on the 2018 Country Music Association Awards, and several other of the night's nominees might be taking the stage to carry out, current and doubtlessly win the most important honors of the evening.

Hosted by Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley (who’re included on this 12 months's roundup of performers and presenters), the 2018 CMA Awards will convey game-changers like Maren Morris, Kacey Musgraves, Pistol Annies and Florida Georgia Line and Bebe Rexha — whose crossover collaboration "Let It Be" scored them three nominations — to its stage at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena on Wednesday evening (Nov. 14).

The spectacular roster continues with Garth Brooks, Eric Church, Dierks Bentley, Kelsea Ballerini, Jason Aldean, Chris Stapleton and extra. Presenters embody CMA Awards regulars Lady Antebellum, Trisha Yearwood and Little Big Town, in addition to music icons throughout all genres — like Lionel Richie — and Hollywood up-and-comers like Noah Schnapp of Stranger Things.
