The Country Music Association has revealed the first acts scheduled to perform during the 2017 CMA Awards. Garth Brooks, Miranda Lambert, Thomas Rhett, Carrie Underwood and more have been tapped to take the stage during Country Music’s Biggest Night.

In addition to Brooks, Lambert, Rhett and Underwood, Brothers Osborne, Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Alan Jackson, Little Big Town, Old Dominion, Jon Pardi and Chris Stapleton will all take the stage at the 2017 CMA Awards. All of the performers except for Jackson are nominated at this year’s awards show; Jackson, though, is a 2017 Country Music Hall of Fame inductee with 81 CMA Awards nominations throughout his career. This year will be his 24th time performing at the CMA Awards.

A dozen artists earned multiple nominations for the 2017 CMA Awards. Keith Urban, Lambert, Stapleton and Maren Morris are among the most-nominated artists in 2017.

The 2017 CMA Awards are scheduled to air on ABC on Nov. 8, at 8PM ET; the ceremony will take place live at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. Brad Paisley and Underwood will host the ceremony for the 10th year in a row.
