The Country Music Association Awards will be bringing a little twang to the big city when nominations are announced next month.

Country superstars Jason Aldean and Lady Antebellum plan to reveal nominees in five categories on US network ABC's Good Morning America on September 5.

They'll finish off the list later that morning at The Hard Rock Cafe in New York's Times Square.

It's the first time the nominations have been announced entirely in New York since 2005. The tie-in with the Big Apple is a natural. While New York has no country music radio station, it's still the genre's best-selling region in the US, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

The 46th annual CMA Awards will be broadcast on November 1 live from Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley will host.
