NASHVILLE, Aug. 28 (UPI) -- The final nominees for the 2009 CMA Awards are to be announced at the "Good Morning America" studios in New York's Times Square, ABC said.

The final nominees in select country music categories are to be announced Sept. 9 by singers Darius Rucker and Lee Ann Womack.

"The 43rd annual CMA Awards" show is to be broadcast live from the Sommet Center in Nashville Nov. 11.

Reigning CMA Male Vocalist of the Year Brad Paisley and CMA Female Vocalist of the Year Carrie Underwood are to serve as hosts of the prize presentation.

"I was so honored to perform at the 2008 CMA awards show, and I feel privileged to be a part of this year's nominee announcement," Rucker said in a statement.

"The excitement that comes with the announcements of the CMA Award nominations brings me such delight every year," Womack said. "I can remember watching the Awards as a young Texas girl and dreaming of one day being a part of something that brings such honor to what I've always been so passionate about. It's a time to celebrate the artists, songwriters, musicians, producers and the industry in general."
