The Academy of Country Music announced that Carrie Underwood will perform the world television premiere of her soon-to-be-released single live on the ACM Awards on April 15.
After revealing on Instagram on April 6 that she was back rehearsing with her band, Carrie teased on April 8 that a big announcement is imminent—and it sounds like it’s a new single. Carrie has not released a new single since 2016’s “Dirty Laundry,” although she was featured on Keith Urban’s 2017 single, “The Fighter.”
Kenny Chesney, Lady Antebellum, Blake Shelton, Keith Urban, Jason Aldean, Kelsea Ballerini, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line with Bebe Rexha, Miranda Lambert, Maren Morris, Kane Brown, Kelly Clarkson, Alan Jackson, Little Big Town, Jon Pardi and Thomas Rhett are also set to take the stage at the ACM Awards.
In addition, Cam, Dustin Lynch, Kiefer Sutherland, Sam Elliott, Ashton Kutcher, David Boreanaz, AJ Buckley, Max Thieriot and Eve have been added as presenters. Previously announced presenters include Drew Brees, Nancy O’Dell, Rebecca Romijn and Lindsey Vonn.
Reba McEntire will return as the host of the upcoming show. The gig will mark Reba’s 15th time as the emcee, her first since 2012 when she teamed with Blake Shelton.
The ACM Awards will air from MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, April 15 at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
