Miranda Lambert and Kelsea Ballerini are just two of the artists who will be collaborating with rock and pop musicians during the 51st annual Academy of Country Music Awards taking place Sunday (April 3) in Las Vegas.
Lambert will team up with Keith Urban and ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons for a take on the band’s classic “Tush.” Urban will also perform his new single, “Wasted Time,” during the show airing live at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
Ballerini, this year’s ACM new female vocalist of the year winner, will be joined by Nick Jonas for a performance.
In announcing the latest additions, the ACM also revealed that New Orleans musician Trombone Shorty will perform a duet with “one of the shows biggest acts.” Trombone Shorty’s involvement in the awards show came the same day Dierks Bentley announced the musician is featured on “Mardi Gras,” a track from Bentley’s upcoming album, Black.
On Tuesday, the ACM also announced that Maddie & Tae and actor Tom Hiddleston have been added to the list of presenters at the awards show. Hiddleston portrays Hank Williams Sr. in the new film, I Saw the Light.
Bentley and Luke Bryan will cohost the awards show at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
