P!nk is headed to the 51st Annual CMA Awards.
The CMA reveals that the global superstar will perform during the November 8 ceremony.
While the booking may be surprising – she is, after all, best known for her pop and adult contemporary hits – it is important to remember that P!nk had a recent #1 hit at country radio. She and Kenny Chesney reached that position with their collaboration “Setting The World On Fire.”
That song is also nominated for Musical Event of the Year at this year’s CMA ceremony.
As evidenced by her huge #1 bow on last week’s Billboard 200, P!nk is also a legitimately big star. And as recent ceremonies have proven, the CMA has no problem looking outside the country genre to secure big names for the show.
Other newly announced performers include Tim McGraw & Faith Hill and Keith Urban. Urban will also join Eric Church, Darius Rucker and Lady Antebellum for an all-star collaboration.
Previously announced performers include Kelsea Ballerini & Reba McEntire, Dierks Bentley & Rascal Flatts, Maren Morris & Niall Horan, Brad Paisley & Kane Brown, as well as Garth Brooks, Brothers Osborne, Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town, Old Dominion, Jon Pardi, Chris Stapleton, Thomas Rhett and Carrie Underwood.
