Country superstar Trace Adkins will serve as host for the first annual American Country Awards (ACA) next month, which will air live from Las Vegas.

Trace will also sing on the ACAs, along with performances from Easton Corbin, Steel Magnolia and Uncle Kracker. Previously-announced performers include Reba, Blake Shelton, Rascal Flatts, Toby Keith and Josh Turner.

The two-hour special will feature appearances by Laura Bell Bundy, Rodney Carrington, Jewel, Lady Antebellum and rock star Bret Michaels, as well as rodeo star Ty Murray, comic Jeff Dunham and NASCAR drivers Clint Bowyer, Michael Waltrip and Elliott Sadler.

Fans can cast their votes here for the ACA Artist of the Year, with nominees including Lady Antebellum, Taylor Swift, Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood and the Zac Brown Band. Fans are able to vote once a day until the poll closes Saturday, December 4.

The ACAs is billed as the only country music awards show that gives fans the opportunity to vote for their favorite artists not only in traditional categories but also in previously-unrecognized areas of the business such as touring.

The ACAs will air live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Sin City on Monday, December 6 at 8:00 PM ET on FOX.
