ABC Family Star/Singer Lucy
Hale to Present an Award on Country Music’s Biggest Night™ Wednesday, Nov.
5 from Nashville on the ABC Television Network
NASHVILLE – “The 48th
Annual CMA Awards” will present genre-crossing duet performances by Ariana
Grande and Meghan Trainor who will perform with Little
Big Town and Miranda Lambert respectively. “Pretty
Little Liars” actress and DMG Nashville recording artist Lucy Hale will
be joining the evening as a presenter live, Wednesday,
Nov. 5 (8:00-11:00 PM/ET) from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville on the ABC Television Network.
Hosted for the seventh
consecutive year by Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood,
Country Music’s Biggest Night™ will also feature superstar performances by
Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan,
Kenny Chesney, Eric Church, Florida
Georgia Line, Lady Antebellum, Tim McGraw,
Kacey Musgraves, Paisley, Blake Shelton, The
Band Perry, Underwood, and Keith Urban.
Grande will be joining two-time
CMA Vocal Group of the Year Little Big Town for an on-air collaboration. Within
less than a year, Grande captured No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 twice—first
with her Republic Records debut Yours Truly and also with its 2014 follow-up My Everything.
Trainor will team up with
nine-time nominee and reigning CMA Female Vocalist of the Year Lambert. This dynamic
duo’s performance of Trainor’s “All About That Bass” is sure to be a must
see moment. Singer/songwriter Trainor has written songs for such stars as Rascal
Flatts before skyrocketing to success with her international hit “All About
That Bass,” which has topped the Billboard Hot 100 for the past six weeks.
While Hale made her mark
early on as an actress, best known for her role on the hit ABC Family drama “Pretty
Little Liars,” music was always her first love. The Memphis born and bred singer’s
debut album, Road Between, was released by DMG Nashville on June 3 and
features her brand new single, “Lie A Little Better.” Hale will also be performing
on “CMA Country Christmas,” a two-hour special airing Monday, Dec. 1 (8:00-10:00 PM/ET) on the ABC Television Network.
Winners of “The 48th Annual
CMA Awards” will be determined in a final round of voting by eligible voting
members of the Country Music Association. CMA Awards balloting is officiated by
the international accounting firm of Deloitte & Touche LLP. Voting for the
CMA Awards final ballot ends Monday,
Oct. 27 (5:00 PM/CT).
