Kenny Chesney, Carrie Underwood to perform, Dierks Bentley to host 51st Academy of Country Music Awards

Another music awards show, another opportunity for Country Fest 2016 stars to shine on stage!  The Academy of Country Music announced last month that Carrie Underwood would be joining an all star cast of performers set to take the stage on the organization’s 51st annual awards night, on Sunday, April 3 on CBS.  Kenny Chesney is also scheduled to bring his “No Shoes Nation” show to the event with a highly anticipated performance. And who could forget the adorable clown that will be co-hosting the whole shindig, Country Fest 2016 artist Dierks Bentley!  Take a look at the leaked footage of his ACM Awards prep below. Y’all think he’s ready for the big time?? 😉

Again, don’t miss the stellar show, airing on CBS on Sunday, April 3. Yet another sneak peek at some of the best country music has to offer, and some of the faces you’ll be seeing in person in just a matter of months!!
