POLL: Whose 2018 ACM Awards Performance Are You Most Excited For?
More than two dozen country stars -- and some pop artists -- will take the stage during the 2018 ACM Awards. Solo performances, duets and one very special tribute moment will all take place during the annual awards show.
Among the artists scheduled to perform during the 2018 ACM Awards are Dierks Bentley, who will sing his newest single, "Woman, Amen;" Kenny Chesney, who will share his brand-new single, "Get Along;" and Carrie Underwood, who will debut her song "Cry Pretty." Luke Bryan, Lady Antebellum, Maren Morris and more are also set to perform.
Six superstar duets will also take place on the ACMs stage in 2018: Kane Brown and Lauren Alaina will sing their No. 1 hit "What Ifs;" Florida Georgia Line and Bebe Rexha will team up for a performance of their collaboration "Meant to Be;" and Keith Urban and Julia Michaels will sing his newest single, "Coming Home," the recorded version of which features the pop singer-songwriter.
Additionally, the 2018 ACM Awards will feature three "ACM Flashbacks": special duet performances of big hits from the country music world 25 years ago, in 1993. Alan Jackson and Jon Pardi will perform Jackson's 1993 hit "Chattahoochee;" Toby Keith and Blake Shelton will sing Keith's debut single, "Should've Been a Cowboy;" and Reba McEntire and Kelly Clarkson will team up for McEntire's duet (originally with Linda Davis) "Does He Love You."
ACM CEO Pete Fisher tells The Boot that the show will also include a tribute to the victims of the Route 91 Harvest Festival shooting; details on that moment are still scarce, but Billboard reports that the show will begin with the special moment.
"This is the elephant in the room," says ACM Awards Executive Producer RA Clark. "We are going to address it right at the top of the show ... I feel like we found the appropriate voices to put to it. Then we have to get into our show -- not leave it behind, but focus on what's ahead of us."
