Luckily, these two seem to be amicable exes

The Country Music Association announced today that Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Sam Hunt, and Blake Shelton will all be performing at the upcoming CMA Awards, joining previously announced performers including Kelsea Ballerini, Miranda Lambert, Maddie & Tae, Kacey Musgraves, Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood

The event, which airs live on Nov. 4, will also mark Shelton and Lambert's first joint public appearance since the two announced their divorce after four years of marriage in late July. Blake is nominated for two CMA Awards, including Male Vocalist of the Year, while Miranda is nominated for four, including Entertainer of the Year.

"This is not the future we envisioned and it is with heavy hearts that we move forward separately," the duo said in a statement at the time. "We are real people, with real lives, with real families, friends and colleagues. Therefore, we kindly ask for privacy and compassion concerning this very personal matter."

Since the split, the 39-year-old Voice coach and the 31-year-old "Little Red Wagon" beauty seem to be moving on with their lives. 

"I'm in a good place," he said in an interview on CMT Hot 20 Countdown earlier this month. "I wasn't but I am now. It's amazing how quickly life can turn around for you. I've had some pretty cool things in recent times that've happened and I'm loving it."

Likewise, a source told E! News in September that Lambert is enjoying the single life and using her music as therapy. 

The insider revealed that the Grammy-winner plans to take some time before jumping into a new relationship, but she's hopeful she will find love again, adding that Miranda simply wants the best for Blake. 

Earlier today, Shelton tweeted, "Sometimes life is completely unfair and makes absolutely no sense... Thank God," although he failed to elaborate. 

The 49th Annual CMA Awards air live on Nov. 4 from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville at 8 p.m. ET on the ABC Television Network.
