Hot off the announcement of Shania Twain as the show’s host, the Canadian Country Music Awards have confirmed the program’s first three performers -- Keith Urban, Lindsay Ell and High Valley. All three artists will be a part of the nationwide broadcast, from FirstOntario Place in Hamilton, ON, on Sunday, September 9, live in all time zones on CBC and at cbcmusic.ca/ccmas at 8 p.m. ET (5 p.m. PT).

Grammy-Award winner Keith Urban is no stranger to the CCMA Awards stage. This year, the platinum-selling artist will arrive in Hamilton celebrating the release of his ninth studio album 'GRAFFITI U'.  Recently earning the first #1 single at Canadian country radio by a female in more than a decade with “Criminal,” Lindsay Ell has spent the better part of the last year taking the country world by storm. And the brothers of High Valley are no stranger to CCMA success.  as two-time CCMA Award Group of the Year winners, High Valley has become one of Canada’s biggest success stories. Selling over 1 million singles worldwide, the brother duo recently released their fifth studio album 'DEAR LIFE.'
