Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban and Sara Evans are the latest added to the list of performers for the 47th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards. They are in good company, since Blake Shelton, Rascal Flatts, Chris Young, the Band Perry, Lady Antebellum, Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney, Eric Church, Toby Keith, Miranda Lambert and Tim McGraw will also be taking the stage during the April 1 award ceremony.

In addition, ‘2 Broke Girls’ actress Beth Behrs and ‘Entertainment Tonight’ host Nancy O’Dell, who both helped announce this year’s ACM nominees via Twitter and Facebook, will serve as presenters for the evening.

Carrie and Sara are both nominated this year in the Female Vocalist category. The ‘A Little Bit Stronger’ singer took the title in 2005, while the ‘Good Girl’ has been named ACM Female Vocalist three times. Carrie is also nominated for Vocal Event of the Year with Brad Paisley for ‘Remind Me.’

For the second year in a row, Blake Shelton and Reba McEntire will co-host the ACM Awards, which air live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, April 1 at 8:00 PM ET on CBS.

Down the street, the Zac Brown Band are hosting the 2nd annual Academy of Country Music Fan Jam, which will include performances by ACM New Artist of the Year nominees Brantley Gilbert, Hunter Hayes and Scotty McCreery. The concert takes place during the awards ceremony and will serve as the stage for the New Artist winner announcement.
