Tim McGraw, Daughtry to Play CMA Awards


Country will get a little bit rock and roll with the addition of Daughtry to the roster of performers for the 43rd annual Country Music Association Awards, the CMA tells PEOPLE.

The show – to air on ABC Wednesday, Nov. 11, at 8 p.m. ET – will feature a duet between the five-man band (fronted by 2006 American Idol finalist Chris Daughtry) and Vince Gill on “Tennessee Line,” a track off Daughtry’s most recent album that featured Gill on harmony vocals.

The CMA also announced that Tim McGraw will be returning to perform for the first time in four years.
