Lenny Kravitz and Nelly will both make their debut at this year's CMT Music Awards, performing during the show.

Rocker Lenny will join co-host Jason Aldean, while rapper Nelly will team up with Florida Georgia Line on their crossover hit Cruise at the US ceremony, which will air live on the country music television channel CMT.

Jason, who is co-hosting with actress Kristen Bell, has mixed it up before, inviting Ludacris on the show two years ago to perform his hit Dirt Road Anthem. He has not announced what song he'll play with Lenny.

Nelly helped the duo Florida Georgia Line remix its country hit Cruise and it's now making an impact on pop charts.

Carrie Underwood has the most nominations at the awards, with five.

Miranda Lambert has four and Taylor Swift is up for three gongs, including video of the year for her song The Civil Wars, which was featured on The Hunger Games soundtrack.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Taurus:

A home improvement project will be stalled or called off altogether. The situation is frustrating, but it can't be helped. Instead of dwelling on your disappointment, turn your attention to more rewarding pursuits. Working on an unusual creative project fills you with excitement. Don't show the fruits of your labour to anyone just now. You'll go through several drafts before you're happy with the result. At that point, you can show off your handiwork. Prepare to receive warm praise for your exceptional talent.More
