Gabby Barrett, Luke Combs, Maren Morris and Thomas Rhett are among the first round of performers announced for the 54th annual CMA Awards, being held 11/11.

Co-hosts Reba McEntire and Darius Rucker will perform what's being billed as a groundbreaking tribute performance. McEntire will also sing with Rhett, Hillary Scott and Chris Tomlin; Rucker will join Lady A for a performance. ABC will air the show.

Also among the performers are Eric Church, Florida Georgia Line, Miranda Lambert, Ashley McBryde and Rascal Flatts. Charlie Puth will perform with Barrett.

The 54th annual CMA Awards will mark the first time the country music community has gathered in one room this year.

"Although the show will feel a bit more intimate this year, we look forward to hosting our nominated artists and their guests as we celebrate the best of country music in a fully safe and physically distant environment,” said CMA CEO Sarah Trahern.

Lambert, this year’s top nominee with seven nominations, will perform “Settling Down.”

Barrett will be joined by Charlie Puth to perform “I Hope”; Morris, a five-time nominee this year, will perform her CMA Single- and Song of the Year-nominated “The Bones”; Rhett, McEntire, Scott and Tomlin will sing “Be a Light”; and Rucker and Lady A will assay his new single, “Beers & Sunshine.”

Church is performing “Hell of a View,” Combs will do “Cold as You” and Florida Georgia Line is taking on "Long Live."
