The CMA Awards are coming up, but don’t forget to mark the CMT’s Artist of the Year special on your calendar too! The 5th annual event is happening in Nashville, Dec. 2nd at 8p on CMT. Can you guess which five country artists will be honored? Well, don’t worry, because I’m going to tell you: Miranda Lambert, Keith Urban,Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan and Florida Georgia Line!  According to CMT, each artist was selected for their “impact in country music through massive radio airplay, chart-topping album sales and millions of individual downloads of their current singles.” Another fun night of awesome performances!

Another DVR alert for you! Thanksgiving Day, join Miranda Lambert and friends for a celebration of four-legged furry rescue friends! It’s the Great American Dog-a-Thon! Hillary Swank will host the event, with Scarlett Johansson, Josh Duhamel, Kristen Bell, Fergie, Paula Abdul, Betty White and Ke$ha all adding their voice of support for animals all over America. This is 8,000 buckets of fantastic!

It has been nearly 12 years since Shania Twain released her last album, 2002’s Up, but in a recent interview with the Las Vegas Sun, she opened up on how her two-year Las Vegas residency helped her find the courage to release new music. So maybe a new album from her soooooon? I think we can all agree that would be pretty sweet!

SPORTS GAMES! The first night of the World Series kicks off tonight in Kansas City with a performance by the one and only Trisha Yearwood. She’ll sing “The Star-Spangled Banner” (of course) and she isn’t the only country artist showing up on the baseball field this week. Little Big Town, whose new album Pain Killer just came out yesterday, will sing the national anthem before Game 3 on Friday. Carlos Santana and son will do an instrumental version for Game 4. So, I wonder who will sing for the other games….hmmmm.

The 2014 CMA Awards will not only be infused with Carrie’s bun in the oven, but it will also be infused with some pop! (And I’m not still talking about Carrie being pregnant.) Ariana Grande and Meghan Trainor will appear on the Nashville Bridgestone Arena stage to perform with Little Big Town and Miranda Lambert, respectively. No specific word on what song Ariana and LBT will be doing, but we know Miranda and Meghan will sing “All About That Bass”! HUZZAH!
