Carrie Underwood will be busy at the CMA Awards on Wednesday – Access Hollywood has exclusively learned that in addition to co-hosting the ceremony, the country star will also be performing twice on Wednesday’s big show!

A source exclusively told Access that the country cutie – along with Keith Urban and her co-host Brad Paisley – will open the show with her song, “Songs Like This.”

The source also said Carrie will take the stage again to perform her hit, “Mama’s Song.” Carrie’s mother, who stars in the video with the singer’s husband Mike Fisher, will be in the audience. However, Mike is not expected to be at Wednesday’s show, as he’ll be on the road with his pro hockey team, the Ottawa Senators.

Carrie is nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year and Album of the Year for “Play On.”

The 44th CMA Awards air live on ABC on Wednesday at 8 PM.
