Brett Eldredge, Chris Young and Cassadee Pope to Perform at 2016 ACM Awards
Eldredge, Young and Pope are the newest additions to a list of performers that already includes Luke Bryan, Tim McGraw, Chris Stapleton, Jason Aldean, Thomas Rhett, Dierks Bentley, Kelsea Ballerini, Eric Church, Sam Hunt, Carrie Underwood, Kenny Chesney, Keith Urban, Florida Georgia Line and Cam. According to a press release, Young and Pope will perform together, so it’s likely that they will be singing their duet, “Think of You.”
“She’s definitely somebody that can sing her butt off,” Young tells The Boot of Pope. “And that was really the defining thing in me wanting to ask her do a duet: She has an amazing voice. She’s an amazing artist.”
Eldredge and Young are both nominated for two awards at the upcoming 2016 ACM Awards: Eldredge will vie for Male Vocalist of the Year and New Male Vocalist of the Year, while Young is hoping to win Album of the Year and Single Record of the Year.
The 2016 ACM Awards are set to air live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nev., on April 3, beginning at 8PM ET on CBS. Bryan and Bentley will be co-hosting this year’s ceremony.
