Keith Urban, Kenny Chesney, Blake Shelton and Lady Antebellum are the latest artists added to the list of performers for the 2018 ACM awards. The award show will be held on Sunday, April 15 in Las Vegas.

Olympic medalist Lindsey Vonn, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees, actress Rebecca Romijn and Entertainment Tonight host Nancy O’Dell were also announced as presenters.

Previously announced performers include Miranda Lambert, Maren Morris, Jason Aldean, Kelsea Ballerini and Florida Georgia Line with pop artist Bebe Rexha. Aldean’s performance will be his first time taking the stage in Vegas since the Route 91 Harvest Festival shooting.

Although he hasn’t yet been announced as a performer, it’s expected to be a big night for eight-time nominee Chris Stapleton, who scored his first Entertainer of the Year nomination. Stapleton leads his fellow artists in nominations, followed by Thomas Rhett, who has six nominations.
