The 51st Academy of Country Music Awards is less than a week away and artists are still being announced as part of the night’s talent lineup. Joining the April 3rd telecast for performances will be Little Big Town, former ACM Awards co-host Blake Shelton, and Lady Antebellum’s Charles Kelley. Additionally, Old Dominion — already named ACM’s New Vocal Duo or Group of the Year winner — will perform on the show.
The lineup of stars presenting awards is equally as impressive, with Martina McBride, Kacey Musgraves, Kip Moore, Jake Owen, Cole Swindell, Chris Janson, Jana Kramer and Chase Rice among the country stars named to hand out honors. Additionally, actor Kiefer Sutherland, Miss America Betty Cantrell and news anchor Nancy O’Dell will be on hand to present.
Previously announced performers include Eric Church, Chris Stapleton, Sam Hunt, Kenny Chesney, Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan and Dierks Bentley, among many others. The ACM also recently announced a special collaboration between Dolly Parton — who is receiving the Tex Ritter Film Award — and pop star Katy Perry.
The 51st ACM Awards, co-hosted by Luke Bryan and Dierks Bentley, will air live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas Sunday, April 3rd at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
