Fans will be welcomed with a familiar face as Reba McEntire hosts her 15th show. "To be out here with the country music family, my friends and people in the country music world", he said.

The singer said that the single feels especially meaningful amid the devastating Route 91 Harvest Festival mass shooting in Las Vegas in October 2017.

Since this particular award ceremony is likely a comfortable and happy place for Underwood (she's won nine awards in prior years) it's a great place for her to step back into the spotlight.

Another commented, "I think for a person who's songs are all about being strong and accepting who you are as a woman, you sure come off narcissistic".

Both country singers are "looking forward" to perform at Academy of Country Music Award on Sunday. McEntire is a 16-time ACM award victor, and she's among the singers competing for Female Vocalist of the Year.

Kelsea is set to perform during the show and she is also nominated for two awards - Female Vocalist of the Year and Video of the Year for "Legends".

Over the past 13 years, Aldean has become one of country music's biggest stars, selling more than 10 million albums.

Other performers include Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Toby Keith, Alan Jackson, Lady Antebellum, Blake Shelton, Urban, Little Big Town and Rhett. The performance will be Underwood's comeback as it will be her first public appearance after the scary fall which led her to a major injury to her handsome face and her wrist back in 2017.

The nation music show will be additionally invaded by pop celebrities: Kelly Clarkson, Julia Michaels and Bebe Rexha may hit on the point.

Rhett earned six nominations, Urban and songwriter-producer Shane McAnally are up for five awards, and Lambert and Morris will each compete for four honors.

Little Big Town, Midland and Sam Hunt, whose "Body Like a Back Road" is the longest-running No. 1 song of all-time on Billboard's Hot country songs chart, all have three nominations each.
