The CMA Music Festival TV special is shifting dates, in a move possibly influenced by the airing of the popular Teen Choice Awards opposite the originally scheduled date.

CMA Music Festival: Country’s Night to Rock is now set to air Sun., Aug. 14 on ABC.

In related news, Dierks Bentley and Little Big Town have been added to the list of performers appearing in the three-hour, primetime concert special. They join previously announced stars including Alabama with Brad Paisley, Alan Jackson with Zac Brown Band, Jason Aldean with Kelly Clarkson, Lady Antebellum, Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton, Sugarland, Taylor Swift, and Keith Urban.

Swift and other country faves are among the nominees at Fox’s 2011 Teen Choice Awards, where Swift scored six nods.
