When the 52nd annual CMA Awards airs Wednesday night, a Tri-Cities teen musician will be part of the show.

Carson Peters of Piney Flats, Tennessee, has been invited to perform, his family told News Channel 11.

While they couldn’t release specifics about the performance, Carson’s father Jamie said his son planned to leave for the performance on Tuesday.

Peters has wowed crowds with his fiddle playing and singing since he was a small child.  According to his bio, Carson started playing the fiddle at the age of 3 and started performing and competing at the age of 4.
