The 51st Academy of Country Music Awards are scheduled to take place Sunday, April 3rd in Las Vegas, and as usual the show has assembled a top-shelf list of performers.
Collaborations will be a highlight of the event, including Miranda Lambert and Keith Urban performing with ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons on the ZZ Top classic “Tush.” Additionally, Kelsea Ballerini will perform with pop star Nick Jonas and Chris Young and Cassadee Pope will perform their current hit duet “Think of You.” Perhaps the most anticipated moment of the night is Dolly Parton’s performance with Katy Perry, who is presenting the country icon with the Tex Ritter Film Award.
Also performing during the telecast will be Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban (on his new single “Wasted Time”), Eric Church, Blake Shelton, Jason Aldean and show co-hosts Luke Bryan and Dierks Bentley, among many others. Presenting awards during the broadcast will be Martina McBride, Kacey Musgraves, Kiefer Sutherland and Miss America Betty Cantrell.
The 51st ACM Awards air live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
