Eric Church, Carrie Underwood, Kenny Chesney and the Band Perry are the latest performers to be announced for the 46th annual CMA Music Awards, which will air live on from Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on Thursday, November 1.

Billboard revealed the latest additions to the scheduled lineup, which will include already-announced performances by Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Kelly Clarkson, Little Big Town, Miranda Lambert, Brad Paisley and Zac Brown Band.

Underwood will have a packed schedule that evening. In addition to performing, she will also co-host the awards show with Brad Paisley for the fifth-consecutive year. The ‘Good Girl’ singer even earned a nomination in the Female Vocalist of the Year category.

In addition to performing, Chesney is nominated in the Entertainer of the Year category, as well as in the Music Video of the Year category for ‘Come Over’ and in the Musical Event of the Year category for his duet with Tim McGraw on ‘Feel Like a Rock Star.’

Meanwhile, Church is poised to take home a slew of trophies this year with five nods in his direction. He is nominated for Male Vocalist of the Year and Album of the Year (‘Chief’), plus Single of the Year, Song of the Year and Music Video of the Year, all for his chart-topping song ‘Springsteen.’

The Band Perry are looking at a nomination for Vocal Group of the Year. The 2012 CMA Awards will air Nov. 1 on ABC at 8PM ET.
