    The 52nd Country Music Association Awards is just about here, so now is the time to get excited about the performances. And even though the CMA's aren't quite as huge as some other awards, they always seem to execute some really awesome shows.

    Hosted by Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood, the show will kick off with “What Makes You Country,” by two-time 'Entertainer of The Year' nominee, Luke Bryan. Afterwards, the rest of the awards will be scattered with collaborations from a slew of other stars.

    So far we have:

    Jason Aldean and Miranda Lambert - 'Drowns the Whiskey'

    Dierks Bentley and Brothers Osborne - 'Burning Man'

    Chris Stapleton, Maren Morris, Mavis Staples, Florida Georgia Line with Bebe Rexha - 'Meant to Be'

    Though we do not know what they will be singing just yet, other performers include:

    Keith Urban

    Kenny Chesney

    Kacey Musgraves

    Thomas Rhett

    Luke Combs

    Midland

    Brett Young

    Kelsea Ballerini

    Dan + Shay

    Old Dominion

    Pistol Annies.

    Though I have to mention one in particular. Garth Brooks will be performing a new song this year! That's probably going to be amazing. Brooks has got to be the king of country music shows, and I'm super excited to see what he's got in store for us.

    The show kicks off on 11/14 at 8 p.m. (EST) on ABC.

    I'll definitely tune in and try to catch Garth Brooks. But I will have to turn the channel when that big group gets on stage to sing 'Meant to Be'. I really really really don't like that song. Surprised that Stapleton signed on to be a part of that group.

    Same here. I really, really hope that Stapleton does a song by himself. That guy has what is probably the best voice of anyone that is in that building. It's amazing what he can do. And for it to be clouded with all those other singers is going to be pretty disappointing.

    I only know a few of those artists. Maybe it'll be worth watching just to see where country music is at these days. I haven't been impressed in years past. But who knows, maybe the bro country phase is dying out? Anyone on there in particular outside of Garth, that's new, worth looking into?
