It’s all about that star power.

Next month’s Country Music Association Awards broadcast is luring in pop fans with the addition of Ariana Grande and Meghan Trainor to the performance lineup. Grande, the American Music Awards’ reigning New Artist of the Year, will sing with the reigning CMA Vocal Group of the Year, Little Big Town. Trainor, who has several country songwriting credits to her name, will perform her chart-topping earworm, “All About That Bass” with this year’s leading CMA nominee, Miranda Lambert.

Previously-announced performers on the November 5th show include Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney, Eric Church, Florida Georgia Line, Lady Antebellum, Tim McGraw, Kacey Musgraves, Brad Paisley, Blake Shelton, the Band Perry, Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban. Paisley and Underwood will co-host for the seventh consecutive year.

CMA members have until October 27th to cast their votes for this year’s awards. Lambert’s name dominates the ballot this year with a record-setting nine nods. Dierks Bentley leads the guys with five nominations. Up for the night’s top honor, Entertainer of the Year, are Bryan, Lambert, Shelton, George Strait and Urban.

The 48th Annual CMA Awards will air live from Nashville on November 5th at 8:00 p.m. ET on ABC.
