Ciara announces she will be performing at this year’s Country Music Awards

Ciara announced on Instagram that she will be performing with Walker Hayes at the Country Music Awards on Friday.

The 36-year-old R&B star made the announcement by posting a video Wednesday of her dancing on a pavement in what appeared to be the middle of nowhere.

“CC Goes Country Ya’ll,” she captioned the post. ‘Ahh!! Performing with my boy @WalkerHayes on Friday! @CMT Artist of the Year Awards! Turn on!’

The multi-platinum singer’s arsenal of contemporary R&B hits dates back to her debut on the music scene in 2004 with her debut studio album, Goodies.

This new announcement could signal a change in the hitmaker’s life and career.

The 1.2 Step singer’s flirtation with country music follows her move to Colorado with husband Russell Wilson, 33.

Ciara and her star quarterback moved to the outdoor state of Centennial State over the summer so he could play for the Denver Broncos, and perhaps that move sparked a new passion for country music.

“Denver has been incredible so far,” Ciara told People in July. “I think I’m definitely going to be more of an outdoors girl.”

But sometimes nature was too close to be comfortable. “I met a snake,” said the superstar. “We have geese on the lawn that I chase away because I don’t like goose droppings.”

“It’s moth season,” added the singer. “Literally, we open our door and a handful of moths fall down.” And yet the nature that surrounds the Level Up singer’s new city has apparently inspired her creativity. “I’m honestly inspired to be there,” she said.

Ciara and Wilson have been married since 2016 and share two children, daughter Sienna Princess, 5, and son Win Harrison, 1. The glamorous singer also has a son named Future Zahar, 8, from her previous relationship with rapper Future.

The multi-hyphenate met the former Seattle Seahawk at a basketball game in Wisconsin in 2015, resulting in a dinner that ignited their romance. “The next thing I knew…” Wilson said on Instagram Live, “I was convinced of you.”

The two-time BET Award winner has been booked to perform with Walker Hayes. The country-pop singer has released three studio albums, the last of which was Country Stuff in January this year. This album debuted at number nine on the Billboard 200 and became Walker’s first Top 10 album.

It’s going to be an interesting pairing as Ciara is renowned for her superb stage presence, dancing skills and breathy soprano singing. She has cited Michael Jackson as her biggest influence and spoke about the legendary icon on MTV’s tribute special A Celebration of Michael Jackson: “When someone asks me who inspires me to do what I do, I always say Michael. ”

“That’s it for me,” Ciara said of the late Billie Jean singer. “He is everything for me.” With Walker Hayes by her side, the R&B powerhouse will take center stage on one of country music’s biggest nights. Viewers can tune in to CMT on Friday, October 14 to catch the performance.
