Ariana Grande and Meghan Trainor are bringing a little pop to the 48th annual Country Music Awards after signing on to perform with Little Big Town and Miranda Lambert.

The odd couplings will join previously announced performers Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Lucy Hale, Blake Shelton, Florida Georgia Line and Keith Urban.

Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood will co-host the awards show for a seventh time on 5 November (14).
