Judging from the preliminary list of performers for the 39th annual Country Music Association Awards, New York City will never be the same! The CMA is bringing out country's "big guns" for the Nov. 15 live broadcast. Reprising their roles as hosts from last year will be Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn, a.k.a. Brooks & Dunn. Reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year Kenny Chesney and previous Female Vocalist of the Year-winner Faith Hill have been confirmed. Alan Jackson--who holds the record for most career CMA nominations, and the already-legendary George Strait are also confirmed. As for song choices, Faith will likely go with either her recent hit, "Mississippi Girl," or her new single, "Like We Never Loved At All," both from her new album, Fireflies. If she chooses "Like We Never Loved At All," look for her husband, Tim McGraw to join her onstage for that duet. Faith says singing with Tim is her favorite thing to do in the world. "I could do that every night," she declares. Don't miss the CMA Awards, airing live from Madison Square Garden in NYC on Nov. 15 at 8 p.m. on CBS. Additional performers will be announced soon.
