Brett Eldredge and Old Dominion are the latest additions to an ACM lineup that’ll leave you wondering how they can possibly squeeze this many performances into only three hours.
Sunday night’s show will also bring an unprecedented number of superstar collaborations and firsts. Tim McGraw and Faith Hill will perform their new single, “Speak to a Girl” for the first time, while Thomas Rhett will debut his new release that features Maren Morris, called “Craving You.” Florida Georgia Line teams up with Backstreet Boys for a medley that’s likely to include their collaboration on “God, Your Mama, and Me.”
New label mates Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood will do “The Fighter,” as tourmates Cole Swindell and Dierks Bentley deliver “Flatliner.” Christian artist Lauren Daigle will join Reba McEntire for a version of “Back to God.”
There will also be plenty of solo performances as well, by the likes of Jason Aldean, Kelsea Ballerini, Brothers Osborne, Luke Bryan, Lady Antebellum, Sam Hunt, Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town, Jon Pardi, Rascal Flatts, and Chris Stapleton.
Along the way, there’ll also be quite a few awards to pass out. Lauren Alaina, Kane Brown, Kacey Musgraves, ET’s Nancy O’Dell, Jake Owen, Kellie Pickler, Darius Rucker, Miss America Savvy Shields and NASCAR drivers Elliott Sadler and Bubba Wallace will help with that.
You can catch all the action starting Sunday night at 8 p.m. ET on CBS. Luke Bryan and Dierks Bentley will host the 52nd Academy of Country Music Awards, which will air live from Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena for the very first time.
