The 2019 ACM Awards roll into Las Vegas in April, and even if you can't be there, you can take in all of the action.

This year's host is none other than Reba McEntire, who is also slated to perform at the show. McEntire spoke her mind recently about a lack of female nominees for the night's most coveted award, Entertainer of the Year. She's not happy, but it's likely she'll make light of it when the big night rolls around. Just know that she means business, and expect a lot of sass and comedy throughout the evening.

This year's performers include: Maren MorrisKane BrownThomas RhettBrothers OsborneMiranda LambertLittle Big TownChris Stapleton, and George Strait. No word just yet on who is opening the show.

Jason Aldean will have a spotlight cast upon him when he receives the Dick Clark Artist of the Decade Award during the show, and he's also performing. The award recognizes one artist and is an award based on his career, so there's a possibility he'll perform a medley of his biggest hits through the years.

Country collaborator Bebe Rexha (who sang with Florida Georgia Line on "Meant to Be") will likely attend, as she's up for four ACM Awards in 2019. Chris Stapleton and Dan + Shay lead the nominations with six apiece, we can probably expect some big wins from them.

Nominees for the highest honor of the night, Entertainer of the Year, include no women, but either Aldean, Luke BryanKenny Chesney, Stapleton or Keith Urban will take it home.


The awards show will be broadcast on CBS live on Sunday, April 7, at 8PM ET. Red carpet and live stream details have not yet been announced.

Along with the awards show, ACMs weekend will consist of ACM Party for a Cause, which raises money for ACM Lifting Lives. Many stars attend this event, as well.
