George Strait and Merle Haggard have been announced as performers for the star-studded ‘ACM Presents: An All-Star Salute to the Troops.’

The country music legends join an all-star cast that includes Carrie Underwood, Lady Antebellum, Florida Georgia Line and the Band Perry in paying tribute to the armed forces. In addition to performances, the evening will include memorable moments and unforgettable stories of bravery among the service men and women.

“We are so thankful for the men and women in our armed forces and proud to present this fantastic night of performances in their honor,” says Bob Romeo, CEO of the Academy of Country Music. “The special will be a remarkable moment in Academy history and continues the ‘ACM Presents’ TV specials that have been so successful over the years and helps to fund the important charitable work of ACM Lifting Lives.”

The event will be taped on Monday, April 7, one night after the Academy of Country Music Awards, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The show will be broadcast on Tuesday, May 20, at 9PM ET on CBS. Tickets are available for purchase here.
