The duos of Florida Georgia Line and the Chainsmokers will pair up for a cross-genre performance at the upcoming CMT Awards, which will also include performances by Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood as well as Lady Antebellum and Earth, Wind & Fire.

Previously announced performers include Blake Shelton, Luke Bryan and Miranda Lambert. Leading CMT Award nominees include Kelsea Ballerini, Thomas Rhett and Urban. The seven finalists for video of the year will be announced June 7, and fans can vote at CMT.com.
