These new additions will join such previously announced performers as Dierks Bentley, Carrie Underwood, Luke Bryan, George Strait and Lady Antebellum.

After earlier this year revealing “Automatic,” the first single from her upcoming album, Miranda Lambert today unveiled a brand-new music video for the song.
Songwriter Jimmy Robbins and singer Keith Urban talk about the origins of “We Were Us,” the No. 1 duet between Urban and Miranda Lambert that has been nominated for Vocal Event of the Year at the ACM Awards.
“I feel like women in my grandmother’s generation were expected to put on a pretty face and not really show their crazy sides,” Kacey Musgraves said, describing the ideas behind the ACM-Award nominated song she cowrote with Brandy Clark and Shane McAnally. “Now, it’s a bit different.”
“Platinum” will reportedly include 16 songs, half of which she wrote or cowrote and one of which features Carrie Underwood. Lambert also revealed the album’s cover art.

This year it seemed like the words “And the GRAMMY goes too” were hardly uttered during the night’s live broadcast, leaving plenty of room for the performances, which there were 20 of. All of which we ranked.
Steven Tyler, P!nk, Lady Gaga, Sara Bareilles, Zac Brown, Miranda Lambert and Alicia Keys were among the many artists who paid tribute last night to one of the greatest songwriters of popular music.
The GRAMMYs may only be two days away, but they’re not quite yet done announcing the big night’s performers.
