CMA Awards 2013 will be collaborative effort

By Stephen L. Betts. CREATED Oct 21, 2013

Six-time CMA award nominee for 2013 Taylor Swift is set to share the stage at this year's live CMA telecast with Vince Gill and Alison Krauss. But that's not the only cool collaboration on tap for the star-studded gala. The Zac Brown Band will be performing with Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl and reigning CMA New Artist of the Year Hunter Hayes will share the spotlight with Jason Mraz.

These dynamic duos (and trios) join previously announced performers, including nominees Keith Urban, Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, reigning CMA Female Vocalist Miranda Lambert, reigning CMA Vocal Group of the Year Little Big Town, former CMA Entertainer of the Year Tim McGraw, and reigning CMA Entertainer and Male Vocalist of the Year Blake Shelton.

The CMA Awards will be hosted by Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood and they'll air live from Nashville's Bridgestone Arena, Wednesday, Nov. 6 at 8:00 PM ET on ABC.
