The 2018 ACM Awards are just days away and now we have even more performances to look forward to. On Wednesday, April 11, an extended line-up was announced featuring all-star collaborations. Billed as “ACM Flashbacks,” the ACM Awards will celebrate hits from the year 1993 by pairing the original artist with artists who they’ve influenced and inspired.

Blake Shelton and Toby Keith will perform Keith’s hit “Should’ve Been a Cowboy,” while Alan Jackson and Jon Pardi will team up for Jackson’s summertime classic “Chattahoochee.” Finally, ACM Awards host Reba McEntire will duet with Kelly Clarkson for what is sure to be a powerhouse rendition of “Does He Love You.”
