Earnhardt is part of a round of presenters announced by the CMA for ceremony, which will air on ABC.

They join the previously announced performers, who include Taylor Swift, Keith Urban, Dave Matthews (with Kenny Chesney), Tim McGraw, Reba McEntire, Sugarland, George Strait, Zac Brown Band and rockers Daughtry (with Vince Gill).

The show will be co-hosted for the second consecutive year by Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood, both of whom are also set to perform.

Asked what it means to have won on the track not once but five times, "Little E," as he is called, replied: "Well it don't mean s--- right now, Daddy's done won here 10 times, so I gotta do more winnin'." Earnhardt, whose legendary racer father died in the 2001 Daytona 500, said he will appeal NASCAR's decision.
