Jamey Johnson will debut “Macon”, a moody Southern-rock infused tune from his 2 CD-set entitled The Guitar Song being released this fall, while LeAnne Rimes will perform a fully-choreographed number during her powerful and contemporary rendition of the John Anderson classic, “Swingin”, from her forthcoming album Lady and Gentlemen. Superstar John Mayer will trade guitar licks with his CMT CROSSROADS partner, Keith Urban, on the unreleased single “Hit The Ground Running” from Urban’s Defying Gravity, for the very first time on television.
These performers will join previously announced performers Brad Paisley, Zac Brown Band, Keith Urban, Toby Keith, Miranda Lambert, Tim McGraw and Carrie Underwood. It is going to be one fantastic evening at the 2010 CMT Music Awards.
