The 10th Annual ACM Honors are right around the corner, and there are some big names set to perform. CBS announced the stacked line-up today (August 10).
Jason Aldean, Kelsea Ballerini, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Cam, Maren Morris, Cole Swindell, Keith Urban and Lady Antebellum will all perform during the awards ceremony, which pays tribute to the special honorees and off-camera award winners from the 51st Annual Academy of Country Music Awards.
Aldean will be the seventh artist to earn the Triple Crown Award for winning New Male/Female Vocalist of the Year, Male/Female Vocalist of the Year and Entertainer of the Year over the course of his career. He took home the prize for New Male Vocalist of the Year in 2005, and swept the Male Vocalist of the Year category in 2012, 2013 and 2014. With his Entertainer of the Year award this year, Aldean finally became eligible for the special prize. He joins the likes of Triple Crown Award winners Brooks & Dunn (2005), Kenny Chesney (2005), Mickey Gilley (2005), Merle Haggard (2005), Barbara Mandrell (2005) and Carrie Underwood (2009).
Besides Aldean, those receiving special awards this year include Underwood, Urban, Little Big Town, Glen Campbell, Crystal Gayle, Tayna Tucker, Jimmy Web, The Statler Brothers, Eddie Rabbitt (posthumously) and Jeff Walker (posthumously).
The award ceremony will take place Tuesday, August 30 at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium, and will be broadcast Friday, September 9th at 9 pm ET on CBS.
