Carrie Underwood 'Ready' For ACM Awards After Freak Accident

Reba McEntire to Honor Vegas Shooting Victims at ACM Awards

This year, country music legend and 16-time ACM award victor Reba McEntire is back to host the annual show.

The Academy of Country Music Awards is coming up this weekend.

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

Clad in an acid-wash denim jacket, dark blue jeans and a pair of scuffed hiking boots, the Ripcord crooner was certainly in his element as he graced the annual Las Vegas event.

The award show begins at 8 p.m. ET on Sunday night and will broadcast live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

In November of last year, the 35-year-old singer broke her wrist and injured her face causing her to seek medical attention and get more than 40 stitches.

According to CMT.com, ACM Awards published on March 7 that the performers listed are Jason Aldean, Bebe Rexha, Florida Georgia Line, Kelsea Ballerini, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert, Maren Morris, Thomas Rhett, Kenny Chesney, Lady Antebellum, Blake Shelton, Keith Urban, Kane Brown, Kelly Clarkson, Alan Jackson, Little Big Town, Jon Pardi and many more.

The ACMs will air live on CBS.

Ashley predicts an emotional night for Jason Aldean, with or without the Entertainer of the Year Award.

Chris Stapleton, who released two top-selling albums previous year, is the top nominee with eight. Celebrity presenters will include David Boreanaz, Sam Elliot, Ashton Kutcher, Rebecca Romijn, and Lindsey Vonn.

Pop singer Bebe Rexha will also be there to perform "Meant to Be" with Florida Georgia Line. The band Midland won for Best Vocal Group, Lauren Alaina is the Best New Female Vocalist, and Brett Young is the Best New Male Vocalist.

Ada native Blake Shelton earned a nomination for Single Record of the Year for his buoyant ballad "I'll Name the Dogs". And, the songs nominated for Video of the Year are for "Black" by Dierks Bentley, "It Ain't My Fault" by Brothers Osborne, "Legends" by Kelsea Ballerini, "Marry Me" by Thomas Rhett, and "We Should Be Friends" by Miranda Lambert.
