Seems the ABC-TV network is so excited about the Country Music Association Awards that it’ll actually kick off the festivities in the morning.

Luke Bryan is set to play Good Morning America Nov. 6 outside the Nashville arena where the CMA Awards show will take place that night. And GMA host Robin Roberts and Luke also will announce two CMA award winners, though we don’t know which ones. (Educated guess—it probably won’t be Entertainer of the Year.)

The CMA folks also announced a few collaborations for the nighttime awards show.

  • Taylor Swift will be joined by Vince Gill and Alison Krauss for Taylor’s “Red.”
  • Hunter Hayes and pop star Jason Mraz will do “Everybody’s Got Somebody But Me.”
  • Zac Brown Band will perform with Foo Fighters lead singer Dave Grohl.

The 47th Annual CMA Awards air at 8 p.m. ET Nov. 6 on ABC.
