One of the things about the Country Music Awards that keep it from being as boring as other awards is its tradition of putting together unlikely pairing for its live performances.

This year includes one of the best examples of that unique mix – Thomas Rhett and Fall Out Boy will perform together during the 2015 Country Music Awards. The 49th Annual CMAs will be aired live on ABC on Wednesday, November 4th (8/C). Follow the jump for more.


NASHVILLE, TN – One-of-a-kind collaborations are a hallmark of Country Music’s Biggest Night™ and this year that tradition continues with pairings that will be announced each week leading up to the big night on “one-of-a-kind” Wednesdays.
