The ACM Awards

The Academy of Country Music Awards will be handed out Sunday night (April 7) on CBS.  Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan will co-host the show. They will also be joined onstage by Brad Paisley and Miranda Lambert, with the Pistol Annies, to kick off the night.

More highlights to look for:

Thanks to technology, Brad Paisley will also be performing with the late country legend, Roger Miller.  The performance will also include Hunter Hayes on guitar and Dierks Bentley.

Tim McGraw, Taylor Swift and Keith Urban will perform Tim’s latest single, Highway Don’t Care.

George Strait and Garth Brooks, the most recent Artist of the Decade recipients, will perform together, for the first time ever, to pay tribute to the late Dick Clark.  Clark began producing the ACM Awards in 1979.  He passed away on April 18, 2012.
