Kelly Clarkson might not be a country music singer. But, the pop/rock singer has been invited to perform at the 44th Annual Country Music Association (CMA) Awards later this month because she recently recorded a song with Jason Aldean for his upcoming studio album "My Kinda Party".
While the upcoming performance will mark for the first time Clarkson sings at the prize-giving event, her duet with Aldean is not her first involvement in country music. She previously made a duet with Reba McEntire in "Because of You" and got nominated for Musical Event of the Year at the 2007 CMA Awards.
Beside witnessing Kelly Clarkson's live performance debut, this year's CMA Awards will also become a platform for Gwyneth Paltrow to showcase her singing skill in front of live audience. The "Country Strong" actress will be there to join forces with Vince Gill and sing the title track of the movie soundtrack.
2010 CMA Awards will take place on November 10 at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. Hosted by Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley, it will also see performances from Taylor Swift, Rascal Flatts, George Strait, Sugarland, Keith Urban, Dierks Bentley, Kenny Chesney, Lady Antebellum, Miranda Lambert and Zac Brown Band among others.
