Several A-list performers have been announced to rock the stage of this year's Country Music Association Awards. Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood are both confirmed to entertain music fans at the annual event.

Taylor and Carrie will be joined by other musical guests which include Brooks & Dunn, Kenny Chesney, Reba McEntire, Darius Rucker, George Strait, Sugarland, Keith Urban and Brad Paisley. Beside singing, Carrie and Brad will also take hosting job at the show.

At the 2009 CMA Awards, Taylor Swift is nominated in four categories, Entertainer of the Year, Female Vocalist, Song of the Year and Music Video. "I am jumping up and down surrounded by dogs and my mom and screaming like it's Christmas morning. I'll never forget this," she shared her excitement shortly after finding out about the nominations.

Earlier on September 13, Taylor was left stunned on the stage of MTV VMAs when Kanye West interrupted her Best Female Video acceptance speech. Later on, she received a personal apology via phone call from the rapper.

As for Carrie Underwood, she is also vying for Female Vocalist, just like Taylor. In addition, Carrie is listed among the contenders for Musical Event. Most recently, Carrie released a new single "Cowboy Casanova" and has planned to drop a third studio album "Play On" in U.S. on November 3.

The 43rd Annual Country Music Association Awards will be aired live from Nashville on November 11 on ABC. Its nominations list is dominated by Brad Paisley who gets six kudos.

Taylor is an actress, not a singer... I hope for the sake of the CMAs she does not win.

If Taylor wins EOTY, that award is forever tainted. Taylor Swift is a terrible singer live.

I love Carrie. I wish everyone would quit comparing Taylor and Carrie. It is so silly the way everyone fights over these two artists. Carrie, is by far the older more mature singer with a voice like no other in the industry today. Taylor, is a young teenage girl that has gone way beyond her expectations and loves to write and sing. She will never have the voice Carrie has, but they are both good in their own way. I am a huge Carrie fan and I do get tired of people comparing the two. Taylor is good for the younger generation, a good role model. Carrie, on the other hand is so sophisticated and beautiful and does wonderful things for charity and is an outstanding young women!!!!! Carrie, is nominated for FVOTY along with Taylor, Miranda, Martina, Reba.

Carrie is nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year (which she has won the past 3 years) with Taylor, not Entertainer of the Year.
