Keith Urban, Dierks Bentley, Toby Keith and Blake Shelton have been tapped for a musical tribute to Glen Campbell during the upcoming 10th annual ACM Honors.

The country stars will each individually perform a hit from Campbell’s incredible career before joining together for a rendition of his signature song, “Rhinestone Cowboy.” The singer will receive the ACM Career Achievement Award during the ceremony. Due to Campbell’s late-stage Alzheimer’s Disease, which has robbed him of his ability to perform, the award will be accepted by his wife Kim Campbell.

The event, hosted by Lady Antebellum, will also feature performances from Luke Bryan, Cam, Jason Aldean, Cole Swindell, Kelsea Ballerini and Maren Morris. Other honorees include Crystal Gayle, the late Eddie Rabbitt and Jeff Walker, Tanya Tucker, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban, Jimmy Webb, Little Big Town, Dave Cobb and The Statler Brothers. The Academy will also present the brand new Merle Haggard Spirit Award to a still unannounced artist.

The 10th annual ACM Honors will be held at the historic Ryman Auditorium on Aug. 30, and a recorded version of the event will air later this September on CBS. If you’re in Nashville next week, you can still snag tickets online for $60-$100.
