It's no secret that one of the best parts of the CMA Awards is the killer collaborations the show brings together. And this year promises to be no different.

Zac Brown Band – nominated for Vocal Group of the Year – will be hitting the stage alongside Foo Fighters front man Dave Grohl, PEOPLE has learned exclusively. And that's just for starters.

One of the CMT Artists of the Year, Hunter Hayes, will be performing with Jason Mraz, just as the two paired up earlier this summer at CMA Fest. And Taylor Swift, one of this year's top nominees, will be singing with Alison Krauss and country music legend Vince Gill.

Also tapped to perform at this year's awards: Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley, who are back to host for a sixth straight year, as well as Florida Georgia Line, Eric Church and Kacey Musgraves – who, with Swift, is tied for the most nominations.

The 47th Annual CMA Awards will air live Nov. 6 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
