The countdown to Country Music’s Biggest Night is underway, and now we know at least a few of the names who will be giving performances at the 47th Annual CMA Awards.

Among those entertaining the masses during the broadcast will be Entertainer of the Year nominees Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Taylor Swift and Blake Shelton, leaving George Strait as the only EOTY nominee not announced in this first wave of performers.

Additionally, fans can expect performances from nominees Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town, Tim McGraw and Keith Urban. No word yet on whether Kacey Musgraves, who is tied with Taylor for the most nominations, will be taking the stage.

Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood will host the spectacle for a sixth consecutive year when it airs live on ABC Wednesday, Nov. 6, at 8 p.m. ET.
