The 2013 CMT Music Awards will be a big night in country music, boasting a terrific lineup of fan-favorite acts, including the King himself. Recently added to the mix are George Strait, Keith Urban and Lady Antebellum, making this evening a truly entertaining country music party.

In addition to the King of Country, ‘American Idol’ judge and popular trio, Florida Georgia Line, Darius Rucker are the newest names atop a stacked list of previously-announced performers, joining A-listers such as Taylor Swift, Hunter Hayes, and Carrie Underwood. Luke Bryan, Little Big Town and Pistol Annies will also perform during the show, as will host Jason Aldean.

Strait, who recently celebrated his 60th No. 1 hit before his 61st birthday, is certainly a huge addition to the already stellar crowd of performers. He recently released ‘Love Is Everything,’ his 40th studio album, and his appearance at the CMT Music Awards will be especially exciting for fans, as he will soon wrap up his final tour.

Urban, another standout act in the lineup, didn’t receive any nominations at the 2013 CMT Awards, but he’ll surely light the stage up with his presence, just as he did at the ACMs. Maybe he’ll perform his new hit single ‘Little Bit of Everything.’

Fans are also excitedly anticipating the performance from Lady A, and the trio is also up for Group Video of the Year, with their upbeat and contagious hit ‘Downtown.’ Bandmember Hillary Scott will be quickly approaching her due date at the time of the awards ceremony, and it will be extra special for fans to see her right before she welcomes her bundle of joy.

It’ll certainly be an night full of laughter with first-timer Aldean hosting the show alongside of sassy Hollywood favorite Kristen Bell. The 2013 CMT Music Awards will air on CMT June 5 at 8PM ET.
