Blake Shelton, Carrie Underwood Added to 2020 ACM Awards Performance Lineup
The three stars join Trisha Yearwood as newly-announced performers for the 2020 ACM Awards in Nashville. Underwood will perform songs from legendary women in country (Dolly Parton, Loretta Lynn, Barbara Mandrell and more) from the Grand Ole Opry House, and Shelton and Stefani will sing their new duet, "Happy Anywhere."
Yearwood promises an in-memoriam tribute to country singers and songwriters who've died in 2020. She'll perform "I'll Carry You Home."
Eric Church, Mickey Guyton, Dan + Shay were also previously added to the performance lineup for the 2020 ACM Awards. Also among the announced performers are Kane Brown, Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line and Morgan Wallen. Each of these seven acts will be performing at the Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville.
Previously-announced 2020 ACM Awards performers include Tim McGraw, Luke Combs and Miranda Lambert, among others. Four of this year's five Entertainer of the Year nominees are set to perform, with Carrie Underwood as the only remaining nominee not announced for a performance slot. A full list of currently announced awards show performers is below.

On Wednesday (Sept. 9), the Academy of Country Music also announced a group of seven presenters, including Cam, Lauren Alaina, Darius Rucker and Clint Black with wife Lisa Hartman Black. Thomas Rhett and Maren Morris lead all nominees with five nominations apiece, but Old Dominion, Blake Shelton and Dan + Shay have four.
Delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic, the 2020 ACM Awards are set to take place on Sept. 16 at 8PM ET on CBS. This year's ACMs will be broadcast from three venues in Nashville, not Las Vegas, Nev., as in most years. Expect performances from the historic Ryman Auditorium, the iconic Bluebird Cafe and the Grand Ole Opry House, where host Keith Urban will be centered.
Remember: The best way to watch the ACM Awards is on TV, with ToC on your phone.
