ABC has announced the first round of performers for the 46th CMA Awards, taking place at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on November 1st. Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Kelly Clarkson and Little Big Town are the first acts to be announced with many more to come.

While Aldean, Bentley & Little Big Town aren’t surprises, we have to wonder what Kelly Clarkson will be performing. Will we be getting a countrified “Mr. Know It All” or is KC finally releasing a full country single. We sure hope that it’s the latter!

The show will be hosted by Brad Paisley & Carrie Underwood. It airs on ABC on November 1.

Little Big Town’s Kimberly to Start Cooking Show

Kimberly Schlapman on GAC.

Little Big Town‘s “Tornado” might just have been released last week, but one member of the group is about to get a whole lot more busy. Kimberly Schlapman will debut a brand new cooking show on Great American Country (GAC) on September 22nd. It’s a childhood dream come true for the singer, who isn’t a professional chef but loves working in the kitchen. The first episode of “Kimberly’s Simply Southern” will air September 22nd at 1 pm EST on GAC.

Kimberly shares:

“I’m not a professional chef but when I was a kid, I would stand at the counter and pretend I was a cooking show host.”

The 13-episode series will feature recipes inspired by her life on the road on tour. While on tour, Kimberly gets the chance to sample different kinds of specialties from all over North America, which she then tries to recreate at home. The series will follow her visits to the various little towns throughout her touring, and guest appearances by the rest of Little Big Town, Lauren Alaina, and Laura Bell Bundy.

Will you be tuning in when it premieres this weekend? What country star do you think should have their own cooking show?

“After working towards this for 13 years, it’s an even sweeter reward than we dreamed! We’re just soaking it all in and it feels so good.”

Her fellow band member Karen Fairchild added:

“We’ll be celebrating this for a while. We can’t say thank you enough to Country radio, the fans and our whole team for giving us our first number one!”
