Garth Brooks, Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert and More Announced as 2015 ACM Awards Performers
The 2015 ACM Awards stage is going to be packed with some of the biggest stars in country music, including Garth Brooks, Luke Bryan and Miranda Lambert. The Academy of Country Music has announced those three major acts, plus many other fan-favorite artists, as performers for the 50th anniversary awards show.
Jason Aldean, George Strait, Blake Shelton, Kenny Chesney, Eric Church, Reba McEntire, Keith Urban and Florida Georgia Line will also perform at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, during the ceremony, as well as country newcomers and New Artist of the Year nominees Sam Hunt, Thomas Rhett and Cole Swindell.
The Academy of Country Music reports that Strait's performance will include the debut of new music.
Have you picked your jaw off of the floor yet? That is one stacked lineup -- and Shelton and Bryan will only add to the evening as co-hosts, making this an awards show that country fans will not want to miss, even for a second.
Lambert leads the pack of nominees with eight nods, including a nomination for the night's biggest award, Entertainer of the Year; Bentley is right behind her with seven nominations, and the guys of FGL earned five. Also up for Entertainer of the Year, in addition to Lambert and FGL, are Aldean, Brooks and Bryan.
To make the ACM Awards weekend even more exciting, the third annual ACM Party for a Cause will take place on April 17 and 18 and feature many of the aforementioned artists, as well as Clint Black, Patty Loveless, Ronnie Milsap, Darius Rucker, Dwight Yoakam, Alabama, the Eli Young Band and others. The Lone Star State may not be able to contain all of the country that the 2015 ACM Awards will bring.
The 2015 ACM Awards will air live from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, on April 19 at 8PM ET on CBS.
