Lady Antebellum are going to help the 2015 People's Choice Awards go a little country. The trio are set to perform live on the show in early January.

The 41st Annual People’s Choice Awards are right around the corner, but they're just starting to announce the performers. Lo and behold, among the first performers announced are one of country's favorite trios. The awards show will take place on Jan. 7 in Los Angeles at the Nokia Theatre. There are lots more performers that will be announced in the following weeks, and hopefully more country acts will be added to the lineup.

“Music is such an important part of our show, and Lady Antebellum is the perfect addition,” Executive Producer Mark Burnett explains. “This show is for the fans, and having this seven-time Grammy Award-winning band live on our stage will add an amazing element.”

The group are also up for Favorite Country Group at this year's awards. They'll go up against the Band Perry, Florida Georgia Line, Rascal Flatts and Zac Brown Band. It's stiff competition in that category, and winners are chosen based on votes by the public. There are also two other strictly country categories: Favorite Male Country Artist and Favorite Female Country Artist.

It's too late now to vote for your favorite artists since the voting is closed, but fans can still buy tickets to the awards show at
