The first performers for the 2016 American Country Countdown Awards have been revealed. Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line and Thomas Rhett are all set to take the stage at the upcoming awards show.

Rhett’s appearance during the ceremony will be his first at the ACC Awards, which began in 2014 in place of the annual American Country Awards. Both Bryan and FGL performed at and won awards during the 2014 ACCAs; in fact, Florida Georgia Line hosted that event. Additional performers for the 2016 American Country Countdown Awards, as well as the event’s hosts and presenters, and this year’s nominees, will be announced in the coming weeks.

After being postponed late in 2015, the American Country Countdown Awards are set to return on May 1. The show will air live on Fox from 8PM ET until 10PM ET, from the Forum in Inglewood, Calif. The two-hour awards ceremony will be the first country music awards show to air live from Los Angeles in more than 10 years.

Fans looking to make the trek to LA for the 2016 ACC Awards will be able to purchase tickets beginning on March 22 at 10AM PT. Tickets will be available through
