You may not expect Lady Antebellum to be nervous about their performance on Wednesday’s CMA Awards, but performing in front of their fellow country stars still gives them butterflies.

Lady A’s Dave Haywood tells ABC News Radio, “It’s always that front row, they always stack, like, Reba, George [Strait], Tim [McGraw], Faith [Hill]. Taylor Swift‘s always in there. Yeah, it’ll be a little nerve-wracking for sure.”

On top of that, Lady Antebellum will be performing their brand-new song, “Compass,” on the show.

“It’s a new song,” Dave explains. “So [we’re] kind of getting all those parts worked out again. We’ve been rehearsing and stuff leading up to this.”

Though they’ve already won six CMA Awards, Lady A is extremely grateful for their nods this year for Vocal Group of the Year and Video of the Year for “Downtown.”

“It’s never a guarantee to get into any of those categories by any means for the CMAs,” Dave explains. “You know, there’s so many great country artists doing so many really cool things right now. So, we’re honored to be there.”

“Compass” is the lead single from Lady Antebellum’s expanded re-release of their current album, Golden Deluxe, hitting stores November 11. The 47th Annual CMA Awards broadcast live from Nashville Wednesday, November 6 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
