I told you a few days ago that the list of CMA presenters keeps growing – and that continues to be true. Billy Ray Cyrus and daughter Miley have been added to the presenter list.The pair also appeared as presenters back at the 2006 CMA Awards show.
Performers added to the lineup include Jason Aldean and James Otto, who have both been nominated for CMA New Artist of the Year, and Martina McBride, who is nominated for CMA Female Vocalist of the year.
As you know, the 42nd Annual CMA Awards will be broadcast live on Wednesday, Nov. 12 ,at 8 p.m. EST on ABC. If you are ready for a trip to Nashville, tickets are still available at www.ticketmaster.com, by calling (615) 255-9600 or in person at the Sommet Center box office in Nashville.
Wynonna Judd will begin an 18-city Classic Christmas tour the day after Thanksgiving. Her tour will end just in time for her to head home for the holidays.
Wynonna is one of the singers featured on the new Elvis Presley Christmas Duets album, where she joins Elvis in the Christmas classic, Santa Claus is Back in Town. In a statement released to the press, Wynonna said, "People always ask me, if you could have had one choice to work with anyone, who would it be? And I always say Elvis, of course! It is a dream come true to have had the opportunity to actually record this song and hear my voice wit his – it’s something I never really thought could be possible, and I’m so grateful that it did."
And, last for tonight, I want to let you all know that I will be out of town from Nov. 5-9, but I’ll try to get a few things up here for you while I’m away if I can. I hope while I’m gone, you will all look back through the archives here at Country’s Chatter, and check for some articles you might have missed.
Of course, I hope you will all keep writing, too – I won’t be gone that long and I’ll get my mail answered just as quickly as I can when I return. Have a great rest of your week! Keep in touch, I’ll talk to you all soon.
