Shania to perform at 2017 CMA Awards - November 8


I wonder why Shania still isn't confirmed to perform.

The CMAs updated their list of performers today including performances by Tim McGraw and Faith Hill & P!NK and Keith Urban. Along with an opening collaboration featuring Eric Church, Lady Antebellum, Darius Rucker, and Keith Urban.

http://www.cmaworld.com/cma-awards/performers-presenters/

***And why would the CMAs do the old "surprise performance" thing? I'd be promoting it. 1. To benefit Shania. 2. To benefit the show's ratings. And if they say a "surprise performance from an artist who hasn't performed in 15 years" or whatever, people will know it's Shania. That's all we've heard for 6 months. LOL.

I really, really hope she'll perform, because she needs to promote the album like hell. The charts aren't good at all...

They still have to announce a second round of individual performers.

I understand not all performers have been announced. Just wondering why Shania hasn't been confirmed yet considering it's less than 2 weeks away and Derek Frank posted she is performing back in July. It would be good promotion to go ahead and announce Shania will be there.

 I get it. I was hoping they’d promote the performance too, considering it could do the album some added good. Hopefully she’s the special guest performer or something because they announced the full list about an hour ago, and she isn’t listed.

Where is the full and final list of performers? They just updated the list earlier today as I posted above. Plus the CMA site still says "Check back as we continue to release the full list of performers and presenters for Country Music’s Biggest Night!"

 Whoops. Sorry. That is the list I saw. I read it wrong.

According to Derek Frank she is. But there hasn't been an official announcement from the CMAs yet. They updated their list of performers yesterday.

Wow! That's crazy! This is your comeback and first album in 15 years and you're not performing at the CMAs??? Something definitely isn't right over in Shania's camp. Yikes!

 So disappointing. I get that the Country Music Association invites the performers that play each year, but considering the fact her album was #1, its a huge slap in the face. Freaking politics.

I guarantee Shania was invited. Derek Frank even posted it on his site back in July. Shania and her team most likely backed out due to the fact she doesn't have a current hit single she can sing. She surely can't sing the lead (and really only) single "LATGG" at the CMAs. Not to mention it flopped at Country radio.

Hello, I am new here and I never posted any comments here before... I am so disappointed that she wont be performing in this year's CMA.... her last CMA performance is in 2004, and that is a lip-sync performance...that s why i had high hope for her next CMA performance.

I think not just because she doesnt have any hits in "NOW", she may not have confidence to perform in a "more about country music" environment. Don't forget that, she always uses playback (partly or fully) in her recent performance. If she does the same at CMAs, it can be another PR/social media disaster after the "Dancing with the Stars" performance.

just my opinion and guess

After this announcement, I think we can put an end on the "Now" era... it's so sad, 'cause the album is full of great songs, but without a strong promotion there's no way it'll raise on the charts anymore.

Maybe it will be a surprise and someone told Derek to tell that what he said it was a false alarm... well, this is what I hope...

 She should have sing though another song like Soldier or We Got Something They Don’t. If it is confirm that she is not singing at the CMAs then I hope her team is doing something in the next months.

Why would the CMAs want it to be a surprise? Doesn't make sense. If the best-selling female Country artist is making her 15-year comeback and performing, they would announce it. Why hide it???

I knew she would not be performing. She does not like singing live or she has a confidence issue. The album has only been out a month. Why would she not perform? Frustrating because I wanted her too promote the hell out of it. Also to those bashing Tommy for speaking the truth on here please learn to understand that he speaks the truth. He's the biggest Shania fan I know and I'm a huge fan. I'm very disappointed she's not performing but I'm not shocked. This album is good but it's more pop. Tommy is also correct when he says the songs she's released so far are not country radio friendly. Anyway have a good day all. :)

 you see it happening all the time with award shows. And usually it's actually the icons (like shania is) that make those suprise appearances. So I don't rule it out. I don't know what the reason would be, but we'll see.

 I agree with you and Tommy on quite a lot of things. But I think it has a lot to do with expectations from fans. Very plain, but it's her carreer and life. if she doesn't want to perform (because she maybe doesn't give a damn about charts or award shows) so be it. Off course as a big fan I want her to make massive impact on global charts and be on our tv's every week, but it is how it is. I embrace the fact new music is out, that I like some of that music and that I will see her on tour again next year. Let's celebrate any success (the #1 album!!!) and spread posivity and maybe stop assuming things.

Well, if she's performing then Derek Frank is lying us. It's kind of weird of him to post this disproof then.

 Yes, but if he's not allowed to confirm, that little lie would make sense. I will just watch and see on November 8.

If that's the case, Derek didn't have to reply at all. I highly doubt he is playing games with us by saying Shania isn't performing.

Tommy, have you not noticed that the tweet Derek Frank sent is no longer available. It’s been deleted. So dont confirm Shania to be performing or not to be performing. Y’all need to check the links before posting them.

He probably deleted it because he shouldn't have said anything at all. I'm sure people were bugging him about it and asking why she isn't performing.

this facebook post fom Shania makes me think that she will be on the CMA awards...

This Saturday is the 20th anniversary of my album 'Come On Over', pretty amazing considering I'm only 30! 😂
But seriously, I'm so grateful for the support you've shown me all these years and I wanna celebrate that with you this week😘
Maybe she is going to sing hits from come on over in remix and we got something they don’t. She didn’t sing it on the talk because it will be an exclusive to Cma awards.

Just saw a new CMA Awards commercial featuring artists performing. And no mention of any surprises. I think it's safe to say Shania definitely won't be attending the CMA Awards on Wednesday night.

Yea but is the group playing tomorrow night in California? Well it doesn't look like Shania will be at the CMA's.  What a let down she will not perform at the show. Her first album in 15 years and the idiots in her management think it's best she sit out the most exposure she could get for a new song. And a slap in the face to those fans who first followed her from seeing her on the CMA'S in the mid 90's    GREAT album shania but brain dead management and illogical dumb decisions. Instead she will be on Twitter sending meaningless tweets to die hard fans while the great music on her album by in large stays invisible to most of the music consuming public lol Go hide Shania while yuur album dies. Okay kevy's rant is done . i have a life and am not worried how she promotes the songs on this album. Great album but poor management. Chow for now 😁😎

Yes, in Rancho Mirage, California. (November 8).

By the way, I think I told you the album would not sell many copies. But you kept going on and on about how great sales would be and that people will especially buy the album during the holidays as gifts. No way....

first of all the holidays season is just beginning or actually not began yet. Secondly you also have not given her one bit of credit for debuting #1 in the two biggest music markets it the world. i still think it can sell well in the holidays. You need to stop trying to be so concerned about trying to be right and support shania more. This is a great album and we don't know what will happen in the future.if you think the crap played on today's radio is any good then listen to it. Shania put together a great album but has lousy management.. Future will tell if this album has legs or any songs finally get played but she has purposely distanced herself from her biggest market, country.

The main reason the album debuted at #1 was out of pure curiosity. After 15 years, people wanted to hear what the new music sounded like.

in fact you are not just giving your opinion, you are over the top harsh and negative towards her and the new musuc from the start. it is like you have a grudge. Did she snub you some way or regret a request or ignore you on Facebook or Twitter? This is personal to you and much more than not liking the new music. The tone in you towards Shania is mean and snickering inside. Seriously Tommy this may be your site but you sound very hostile towards her music. We all have an opinion on what we like but you go out of your way to be harsh and negative. i won't bicker about this anymore. i am done here and I wish Shania luck.

What "tone" do I have? And how am I being negative and harsh? I'm just speaking the truth as I always do. People just don't like to hear it. That's fine...

Like I said, the main reason NOW debuted at #1 was out of pure curiosity. People wanted to hear what the "new Shania" and music sounded like. How else do you explain the sharp weekly decline in sales since Week 1? This week the album falls 52 spots to No. 126 on the Billboard 200 chart!!! It falls 7 spots to No. 17 on the Billboard Country chart and falls 10 spots to No. 19 on Canadian chart.

I am just very surprised as to why she ain't performing at the CMA Awards? The album is very new and what way to promote it then to perform live at the awards show? She's not even promoting her latest singles releases and it's just strange. Yes I love the album it's just I would of loved to see her live tonight. The awards aren't the same without Shania, I guess times are changing. This is why I miss Jason Owen as her manager. Her new team are horrible at booking her for the big events. Also whose gonna be your girl ain't even doing well in Canada. Unless it has not been released?

So let me try to understand her absence 1) she's a music icon, 2) finally has new music in 15 years, 3) has time to perform few weeks back on DWTS but cant at the CMA, and 4) considering the song was Soldier it would have been fitting to sing a couple days before Veterans Day holiday.

And yes, I just registered for an account just to voice this bizarreness and disappointment.
