The boys of fall are getting ready for some dirt road anthems! Country music's biggest night just got even bigger, as Us Weekly can exclusively reveal that Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Kenny Chesney, and Tim McGraw have been added to the lineup for the upcoming 2014 Country Music Awards.

The star-studded awards show will be hosted by Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena on Nov. 5. The four industry heavyweights join an impressive group of previously announced performers, which includes The Band Perry, Keith Urban, Blake Shelton, Lady Antebellum, and Miranda Lambert.

"Burnin' It Down" singer Aldean, 37, is releasing his sixth studio album Old Boots, New Dirt this week. Because of the timing of the project, he is not up for any awards at this year's CMAs, but he received a nod for Entertainer of the Year and Male Vocalist of the Year at last year's ceremony. 

Chesney, 46, introduced his The Big Revival album just two weeks ago. In the past, the "American Kids" performer has been nominated for Male Vocalist of the Year, Musical Event of the Year, and Music Video of the Year, and won Entertainer of the Year in 2008. 

Bentley, 38, earned five CMA 2014 nominations with his RISER album, which debuted this past August. The "Bourbon in Kentucky" singer is up for awards including Male Vocalist of the Year, Album of the Year, and Single of the Year for "Drunk on a Plane."

McGraw, 47, released his Sundown Heaven Town album on Sept. 16. His previous CMA wins include Album of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year, and Entertainer of the Year. 

The 2014 CMAs will air live on ABC on Wednesday, Nov. 5, at 8:00 p.m.
