NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Jason Aldean and Kelly Clarkson are among the first performers announced for this year's Country Music Association Awards.

Aldean is up for three awards this year, including top honor of entertainer of the year, and Clarkson has been nominated in the female vocalist of the year category, her first solo nomination.

Bentley is up for three CMAs, including album of the year for "Home," while Little Big Town also has three nods.

More performers will be announced later.

Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley will host the Nov. 1 awards, which will air live on ABC from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn.
