Country will get a little bit rock and roll with the addition of Daughtry to the roster of performers for the 43rd annual Country Music Association Awards, the CMA tells PEOPLE.

The show – to air on ABC Wednesday, Nov. 11, at 8 p.m. ET – will feature a duet between the five-man band (fronted by 2006 American Idol finalist Chris Daughtry) and Vince Gill on "Tennessee Line," a track off Daughtry's most recent album that featured Gill on harmony vocals.

The CMA also announced that Tim McGraw will be returning to perform for the first time in four years.

Other stars set to appear the Zac Brown Band, Jason Aldean, Miranda Lambert, Lady Antebellum and Billy Currington, the CMA said Thursday.

They join the previously announced Taylor Swift, Brooks & Dunn, Kenny Chesney, Sugarland, George Strait, Reba McEntire, Darius Rucker, Keith Urban and show co-hosts Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood.
