It is a shocker, but the Eagles are set to perform their newest single, “How Long,” at the Country Music Awards on Nov. 7. This is the first time the all-star group will be hitting the CMA stage or any awards stage. It just shows that they may have been gone for 28 years, but never forgotten. “We’re very excited to have the Eagles on the CMA Awards,” a rep for the CMA awards tells OK! “They obviously have Country roots and are a great talent.” Previously announced performers include Brooks & Dunn, Kenny Chesney, Martina McBride, Brad Paisley, Rascal Flatts, George Strait, Sugarland, Josh Turner, Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban. CMA Chief Operating Officer Tammy Genovese says, “They are an outstanding addition to the incredible lineup of performers for the CMA Awards.” The Eagles first album since 1979, Long Road Out of Eden, comes out Oct. 30.
