Taylor Swift has gathered an all-star band for her appearance on next month’s Country Music Association Awards — and she’s bit alone.

Swift will be joined by Alison Krauss, Vince Gill, Sam Bush, bassist Edgar Meyer and percussionist Eric Darken for a special version of her hit song “Red.”

The 23-year-old singer is one of two top nominees with six nominations for the Nov. 6 awards. Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley will co-host the ABC broadcast live from Nashville, Tenn.

The CMA also announced in a news release Monday that Zac Brown will be joined by Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl on the broadcast and Jason Mraz will perform with Hunter Hayes.

Unlimited Digital Access. $1 for 4 weeks.

All five nominees for top honor entertainer of the year — Swift, Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton and George Strait — will perform on the show this year.
