Tim Hicks, Deric Ruttan, Tebey, Bobby Wills: Four More Reasons to Watch CCMAs on CBC

September 8, CBC-watchers will witness one of the most jam-packed performance line-ups in CCMA Awards history. And all it took to break that record was four more performers. The Canadian Country Music Awards Association announced the addition of Tim Hicks, Deric Ruttan, Tebey and Bobby Wills to this year's bill -- which already boasts international stars like The Band Perry and Hunter Hayes and homegrown favourites including Emerson Drive and Dallas Smith.

"This year has one of the largest number of performers we've ever seen on the CCMA Awards Broadcast stage," Don Green, CCMA President, said in a statement.

CBC Live will be streaming the whole show -- plus the action from backstage and the "green carpet" -- September 8. Until then, get acquainted with this year's entertainment by flipping through the gallery below.

The 2013 Canadian Country Music Awards air on CBC Sunday, Sept. 8 at 8 p.m./8:30 NT.
