Bryan will re-team with Little Big Town vocalist Karen Fairchild for the world premiere performance of their duet "Home Alone Tonight," which appears on Bryan's newest album, Kill the Lights. Upon its release on Aug. 7, the record shot to number one on both the overall Billboard 200 and the magazine's Top Country Albums Chart; it's also claimed the top spots on lists in Canada and Australia, and reached number two in the United Kingdom.
Reigning Academy of Country Music (ACM) Entertainer of the Year Bryan has recently completed a successful Farm Tour in support of his album, and after a series of "Crash My Playa" performances in Mexico near the end of January, will begin Kill The Lights Tour dates on Feb. 18, 2016 in Illinois. These concerts will keep him on the road until May; his complete tour schedule is available here.
Ironically, Trainor's appearance will begin with a solo version of a song originally recorded as a duet. She'll perform "Like I'm Gonna Lose You," her hit collaboration with John Legend from her debut full-length record Title, also a number one hit on the Billboard 200 earlier this year. After that, Trainor will join Charlie Puth for a rendition of his single "Marvin Gaye," on which she was the featured vocalist when the song released in March.
Trainor has had a rough time recently when it comes to public appearances; she was to launch her The MTrain Tour on July 3 with Puth and Life of Dillon as the opening acts. But later that month, the singer was diagnosed with a vocal cord hemorrhage and ordered to cancel dates in favor of vocal rest. Then in August, she scrapped the entire remainder of The MTrain Tour for the same reason, declaring her intention to undergo surgery to fix the problem.
Being booked as a featured act at the AMA's obviously means Trainor is ready to get back into action, and will likely be a great relief for fans who missed their opportunities to see her live this summer.
Trainor's and Bryan's duets join previously announced performances by Nick Jonas, Demi Lovato and Walk the Moon.
