Also performing will be Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani, Kelsea Ballerini, Florida Georgia Line, Kane Brown and Tim McGraw.

Miranda Lambert’s “Fooled Around and Fell in Love” — which features Maren Morris, Ashley McBryde, Tenille Townes, Caylee Hammack and Elle King — has already been awarded music event of the year.

Rhett won for video of the year with “Remember You Young,” and Hillary Lindsey won songwriter of the year.
