Pulling in some big names, we see!
Looks like Taylor Swift, queen of awards shows, will be performing a special version of her song Red with some HUGE country music names!
Alison Krauss, Vince Gill, bassist Edgar Meyer, Sam Bush, and percussionist Eric Darken will join the country cutie on stage during the Country Music Awards on November 6!
Sounds like it's gonna be a real good country-filled time! We can't wait!!
In addition to TSwift's performance, Jason Mraz will also be performing with Hunter Hayes and the Foo Fighters will be playing alongside Zac Brown Band!
Sounds like a cool fusion of country meets contemporary! So cool!!
We wonder when Swifty will start performing Sweeter Than Fiction on the awards circuit! Hopefully soon!
Maybe we'll see her perform it at the Oscars! Ya know, when she wins her Oscar along with Meryl Streep for her role in The Giver!?!
LOLz!!! Ya never know!

Dunmore, Pennsylvania teen and One Direction fan Kelcey Hallinan has been battling Hodgkin lymphoma since December 2011. So to try an lift her spirits, her friends started a social media campaign to try and get Harry Styles' attention!
The support was overwhelming, and soon her fellow Directioners helped get the hashtag #HarryTweetKelcey trending on Twitter! Well the plan worked, but the good news didn't even come close to stopping there!
The Make-A-Wish had previously been involved and approved her request to meet her favorite band, however, at the time she was too sick to meet them in person. So instead, they were able set up a Skype date between Harry and Kelcey on Monday!!
After their meeting, the One Direction heartthrob also sent a little message her way via Twitter and wrote:
Awwww! How Sweet!
Kelcey's mother says her spirits have been incredibly high since their meeting:
His life of charity work, that is!!

Well, this is a dream team if we've ever seen one!!
Cyndi Lauper and Adam Lambert took to the stage together for a rendition of Mad World by Tears for Fears.
The once-in-a-lifetime moment took place during the Cyndi Lauper and Friends: Home for the Holidays at New York's Beacon Theater to benefit the Time After Time singer's True Colors Fund to benefit LGBT youth.
We love a charitable cause, especially when it brings together such a cool group of people, including Sarah McLachlan, St. Vincent, Jason Mraz, Whoopi Goldberg, and Rosie O'Donnell.
You weren't in New York to enjoy the festivities either?! Enjoy the MADNESS (above) !!!!
You rap that ginger heart of yours out, Ed Sheeran!
