The Academy of Country Music has announced the first wave of performers for April's 54th ACM Awards, and one of country music's biggest nights has brought out some of the genre's biggest names. Fans can see a star-studded lineup including Miranda Lambert, Chris Stapleton and Maren Morris by getting tickets to the ACM Awards here at AXS.
The lineup of performers was announced this week through a video on the Academy's YouTube channel, which you can watch by playing the video above. It's a mix of both veteran artists and developing sensations. Taking the stage at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas are Lambert (the reigning ACM Female Vocalist of the Year), the duo Brothers Osborne (defending Vocal Duo of the Year), and Stapleton (who won both Male Vocalist of the Year and Album of the Year in 2018).
Of that entire list, only Stapleton and Strait did not perform at the 2018 ceremony, so the Academy of Country Music is clearly sticking with what works. There's nothing wrong with that because the people on this short list all have very impressive credentials. There are no bigger female vocalists in country music than Reba McEntire and Miranda Lambert, and Strait is one of the best-selling artists in music history, regardless of genre.
The ACMs are also a great place to spotlight artists who are becoming the next big thing, such as Brown, who's been nominated twice for Best New Male Vocalist of the Year. Any country music fan would be thrilled to see all these talented artists in the same place, and that's easy to accomplish: purchase tickets for the 54th Academy of Country Music Awards now at the AXS event page.
