(Yahoo!) - The CMT Awards are coming up rapidly, and country music fans will definitely want to tune in when hearing the latest round of artists scheduled to perform at the show.

First of all, the King of Country, George Strait, will be taking the stage. That should be enough for anyone — but to add to the fun, he'll be joined by Carrie Underwood, Darius Rucker, Florida Georgia Line, Jason Aldean, Keith Urban and Lady Antebellum!

As a refresher, that's not the only crop of huge names that will be performing. Announced last week were Hunter Hayes, Little Big Town, Luke Bryan, Pistol Annies and Taylor Swift; making for a pretty action-packed night of entertainment overall.

CMT has not announced presenters yet, but it's safe to bet they'll pull a few unexpected names — likely some not from the country world — to round out this year's show.

The CMT Awards, which will be held June 5 at 8 p.m. ET, are wholly fan-voted. If you'd like to make your own picks, simply go to from now unti June 2 to choose your favorites. The six finalists for the Video of the Year category will be announced at the beginning of the live show and fans can then vote for their choice during the telecast.

The show will be aired live on CMT, and also can be streamed at
