Newly inducted Country Music Hall of Fame member Kenny Rogers will receive The Willie Nelson Lifetime Achievement Award during “The 47th Annual CMA Awards” airing Wednesday, Nov. 6 (8:00-11:00 PM/ET) on the ABC Television Network.
Rogers will be honored with a star-studded tribute featuring performances by Jennifer Nettles, Rascal Flatts, and Darius Rucker.
“Kenny Rogers is a living legend and Country Music trailblazer,” said Ed Hardy, President of the CMA Board of Directors. “He is more than deserving of this honor and what is sure to be a stellar tribute. He represents everything that this Award was intended to recognize when we initiated it last year with Willie.”
Lady Antebellum and The Band Perry have been added to the list of artists performing during the ceremony, and previously announced performers Miranda Lambert and Keith Urban will perform together on the CMA Awards for the first time.
Hosted for the sixth consecutive year by Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood, “The 47th Annual CMA Awards” will air live from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville.
