Most years, the country genre gets only one performance slot on the Grammy awards show.
In 2012, country will have at least double the fun: The Grammy folks announced Thursday morning (Jan. 12) that Taylor Swift and Jason Aldean (with Kelly Clarkson) will perform on the awards show, which airs Feb. 12 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
And this is just the first round of announcements on who's performing.
Taylor and Jason are up for three trophies each, so it could be a really big night for them. It'll be Jason's first time to perform on the show.
Also announced to perform that night—Foo Fighters, Bruno Mars and Nicki Minaj.
