NASHVILLE, Tenn. —

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.

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.
