Here Are the Artists Performing & Presenting at the 2018 CMA Awards

Nashville's best and boldest voices will ring out at the 2018 Country Music Association Awards, and several of the evening's nominees will be taking the stage to perform, present and potentially win the biggest honors of the night.

Hosted by Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley (who are included in this year's roundup of performers and presenters), the 2018 CMA Awards will bring game-changers like Maren Morris, Kacey Musgraves, Pistol Annies and Florida Georgia Line and Bebe Rexha -- whose crossover collaboration "Let It Be" scored them three nominations -- to its stage at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena on Wednesday night (Nov. 14).

The impressive roster continues with Garth Brooks, Eric Church, Dierks Bentley, Kelsea Ballerini, Jason Aldean, Chris Stapleton and more. Presenters include CMA Awards regulars Lady Antebellum, Trisha Yearwood and Little Big Town, as well as music icons across all genres -- like Lionel Richie -- and Hollywood up-and-comers like Noah Schnapp of Stranger Things.
