Miranda Lambert and Elle King will open the show at this year’s Academy of Country Music Awards ceremony with a performance of “Drunk (And I Don’t Wanna Go Home).” The collaboration is just one of many that were announced by the Academy of Country Music.
Mickey Guyton, who will co-host alongside Keith Urban, will perform “Hold On.” Last year, Guyton performed “What Are You Gonna Tell Her?” with Urban assisting on piano. Other performances include Carly Pearce with Lee Brice on their chart-topping hit “I Hope You’re Happy Now,” and Carrie Underwood and CeCe Winans performing a medley of gospel hymns from Underwood’s album My Savior. Kenny Chesney will also perform with Kelsea Ballerini on the new track “half of my hometown.”
The ACMs will air on Sunday, April 18 on CBS.
