Blake Shelton, Carrie Underwood Added to 2020 ACM Awards Performance Lineup
Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani will perform their new hit song at the 2020 ACM Awards. Carrie Underwood, meanwhile, will reprise a moment from her tour when she takes the stage on Wednesday (Sept. 16).
The three stars join Trisha Yearwood as newly announced performers for the 2020 ACM Awards. While Underwood will perform songs from legendary women in country (Dolly Parton, Loretta Lynn, Barbara Mandrell and more) from the Grand Ole Opry House, Shelton and Stefani will sing their new duet "Happy Anywhere." Yearwood promises an in memoriam tribute to country singers and songwriters who've died in 2020; she'll perform "I'll Carry You Home."
Eric Church, Mickey Guyton, Dan + Shay, among others, were previously added to the performance lineup for the 2020 ACM Awards. Also on the list of announced performers are Kane Brown, Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Morgan Wallen and more. Each of those seven acts will be performing at the Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville.

Delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic, the 2020 ACM Awards are set to take place on Sept. 16 at 8PM ET on CBS. This year's ACMs will be broadcast from three venues in Nashville, not Las Vegas, Nev., as in most years. Expect performances from the historic Ryman Auditorium, the iconic Bluebird Cafe and the Grand Ole Opry House, where host Keith Urban will be centered.
