Luke Bryan To Open The CMA Awards

Luke Bryan will kick off the CMA Awards on Wednesday night with a performance of his single "What Makes You Country."

As someone who has always championed up-and-coming artists, he's taking advantage of the big moment by inviting some of country's rising superstars to perform alongside him.

He says, "I thought this would be a perfect time to share the stage with a few deserving artists who may not otherwise have an opportunity to be a part of the show. This genre is full of talented performers doing what makes them country, and this is the perfect song to let them step in the spotlight to be seen and heard by the millions tuning in."

Tune into the CMA Awards on Wednesday at 8:00 p.m. ET on ABC.
