For Luke, who is recognized in both the Male Vocalist and Album of the Year categories (the latter for his Tailgates and Tanlines), this year's ceremony holds special meaning. "This is the official final stamp of it really, truly being a career album for me," the "Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye" singer told The Boot after the CMA Nominations press conference last month. "It's a big deal for me to have an album that in this day in age, when record sales are really, really tough to achieve, to be in the million and a half type sales. It's pretty rewarding and amazing."
The new round of performers will join previously announced artists Jason Aldean, Little Big Town, Kelly Clarkson and Dierks Bentley in providing entertainment during the live televised broadcast.
Each of the evening's performers all share the title of CMA Award nominee, with Miranda in the lead with four nods. The "Fastest Girl in Town" singer is nominated for Album, Song, Video and Female Vocalist of the Year -- a title she has held since 2010.
The 2012 CMA Awards will air live from Nashville on ABC Nov. 1 at 8:00 PM ET.
