NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Taylor Swift, Jason Aldean and most of the major nominees have signed on to perform at the Country Music Association Awards next month.

Swift and Aldean were among the first round of performers announced Monday for the Nov. 6 show in Nashville, Tenn. Top nominee Swift is one of four entertainer of the year nominees who will perform, along with Aldean, Luke Bryan and Blake Shelton.

Former entertainer winners Keith Urban and Tim McGraw also are scheduled to perform, along with Miranda Lambert and Little Big Town. Lambert and her husband, Shelton, have five nominations apiece, one behind top nominees Swift and Kacey Musgraves.

More performers will be announced later. Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley will host the 47th annual awards.
