Sunday's ACM Awards: What to Expect and Who You'll See

Sunday's ACM Awards: What to Expect and Who You'll See

This year, Reba McEntire will host the ACM Awards for the 15th time.

Superstar Reba McEntire will return to host the 53rd ACM Awards, which honors and showcases the biggest names and emerging talent in country music and is produced for television by dick clark productions.

Jason Aldean, who was onstage when the shooting started at the Route 91 Harvest Festival last October, will perform Sunday.

The show airs from 8 - 11 p.m. ET/7 p.m. CT, from Las Vegas, Nevada, at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. I know it's been a big story, but I think, I'm sure she'll be relieved to finally move on from all that stuff too.

The 2018 ACM awards will be Carrie's first performance in over five months.

Underwood is nominated for Female Vocalist of The Year and Vocal Event of The Year for "The Fighter" alongside Australian singer-songwriter Keith Urban. She had an accident in November and hasn't performed since.

Not-to-be-missed performances include country chart toppers Alan Jackson, Kenny Chesney, Lady Antebellum, Blake Shelton, Keith Urban and Jason Aldean among others.

This year, he has been pitted against the likes of fellow country stars Luke Bryan, Garth Brooks and Chris Stapleton. Not only were fans excited to see Underwood was making new music again, but they were also happy to see was once again sharing a photo of herself on social media again as she has kept selfies and pictures to a minimum since her fall. Thomas Rhett is next with six nominations, including Male Vocalist of the Year and Album of the Year. Celebrity presenters will include David Boreanaz, Sam Elliot, Ashton Kutcher, Rebecca Romijn, and Lindsey Vonn. In the post, she writes of working with writer/producer David Garcia - who's worked both with Christian country artists as well as Florida Georgia Line - and said he's co-producing her forthcoming album with her. Those up for Song of the Year this year are the songs "Body Like a Back Road", "Female", "Tin Man", and "Whiskey and You".
