You already know Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood are going to return for another round as hosts when the 45th annual CMA Awards roll around this year. But with the gala ceremony looming on the calendar, we still don’t know which performers will be joining them on stage.

Well, the night’s full lineup is still a closely guarded secret, but the first few names have been announced and it looks like viewers are in for another year of top-notch entertainment.

The CMAs announced the first round of performers yesterday, and the list includes all five of this year’s Entertainer of the Year nominees: Blake Shelton, Jason Aldean, Taylor Swift, Brad Paisley and Keith Urban. With five nominations apiece, Shelton, Aldean, Swift, and Paisley lead this year’s overall class of nominees.

“I look forward to being able to perform on awards shows,” Urban said. “That is absolute moment that matters most to me is getting to play, because the other stuff is — I don’t know about the other stuff. I know about playing, and that’s the only thing I know about.”

This year’s CMAs will take place on November 9 and will be telecast live by ABC from Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena.
