Four more country stars have joined the 2016 ACM Awards performance lineup. Kelsea Ballerini, Dierks Bentley, Eric Church and Sam Hunt will all be taking the stage during the upcoming awards show.

All four artists are nominated for multiple awards at the 2016 ACM Awards: Church notched six nods, including Entertainer of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year and Album of the Year, while Ballerini earned two, for Female Vocalist of the Year and New Female Vocalist of the Year. Bentley is nominated for Male Vocalist of the Year and Video of the Year, and Hunt received noms in the Album of the Year and Single Record of the Year categories.

Bentley will be a busy guy at the ACM ceremony: In addition to his nominations and newly announced performance, he will also be co-hosting the show with Luke Bryan. This year will be Bentley’s first as co-host.

Ballerini, Bentley, Church and Hunt join a list of 2016 ACM Awards performers that, so far, includes Carrie Underwood, Kenny Chesney, Keith Urban, Florida Georgia Line and Cam. Additional artists, as well as presenters, will be announced in the coming weeks.

The 2016 ACM Awards are set to air live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on April 3, beginning at 8PM ET on CBS.
