2019 CMA Awards: The Performers List
With nearly two dozen performances scheduled, the 2019 CMA Awards were a night full of incredible music. Both solo artists and exciting pairings, as well as a couple of once-in-a-lifetime collaborations, were planned for Country Music's Biggest Night.
Co-hosts Carrie Underwood, Reba McEntire and Dolly Parton performed multiple times at the 2019 CMA Awards, in addition to helming the show all night long.
