No artist before or after his debut performance of “All My Ex’s Live in Texas” in 1987 has ever taken to the CMA Awards show stage more than George Strait.
Strait’s 24th year performing will come at the 48th annual edition of the awards show for which George is also the most nominated artist in history. The longest running annual music award program on network tv will have perhaps it’s greatest lineup of acts ever. The Band Perry, Little Big Town, Lady Antebellum, Tim McGraw, Eric Church and Florida Georgia Line are just some of the other acts set to put their talents on display November 5th from Nashville.
Following a win in the category last year, his third, Strait will look to defend the night’s big prize taking on Blake Shelton, Keith Urban, Miranda Lambert and Luke Bryan for Entertainer of the Year. Each of those artists will also perform! All of the performers and a fill list of the nominees can be found here.
