If you’re like us, you’re probably counting down the days until the CMA Awards.

Previously, it was announced that Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban, Dan + Shay, and Kelsea Ballerini would take the stage on November 14.

Now, several more artists are slated to perform during the award show, such as the Pistol Annies, Thomas Rhett, Kacey Musgraves, Dierks Bentley, Brothers Osborne, Eric Church, Lauren Alaina, Chris Stapleton, Florida Georgia Line, and so many more!

If your favorite artist hasn’t been announced as a performer, the good news is several more performances have not been revealed yet.

However, if you’re Garth Brooks’ biggest fan, we already know his performance is up in the air.

You may recall, Garth Brooks performed during the 2017 Country Music Awards, however, the moment was not without controversy.

Rather, fans called him out for lip syncing “Ask Me How I Know.” Garth would later confirm the accusations, citing a busy tour schedule as the culprit for his voice not being up to par for the awards show.

Now, nearly one year later, the country star is opening up about whether or not he’ll perform during the award show.

Truth be told, Garth would very much love to take the stage during the CMAs, however, it seems the Country Music Association might have different thoughts about penciling Garth in.

According to Taste of Country, the country star reached out to the association and pitched a performance. Garth said that he has a new song dedicated to his wife, Trisha Yearwood, that he wanted to sing to her in front of the crowd at the show, as she hasn’t heard the song yet.

However, Brooks revealed that the Country Music Association said that due to the fact the song was new and a ballad, it probably wouldn’t be a good fit for the awards show.

As of now, it doesn’t appear the country star will perform during the CMAs, however, he and Trisha are expected to attend the event.

Perhaps, that could still change though.

We’ll keep you posted.

Tune in to the CMAs on November 14 on the ABC network and catch Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley host for the 11th year in a row. The show will air at 8 p.m. EST.
