Early details of the 14th Annual ACM Honors have rolled out, with the first round of performers and the event’s host now official.

Emerging hit maker Carly Pearce will preside over the August 25 ceremony, and she’ll be joined by some famous peers.

Presented as addition to the annual Academy of Country Music Awards, allowing the ACM to recognize special categories and winners which don’t fit into the TV program, the 2021 show will once again take place live at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium. So far, performers taking the historic stage include Lauren Alaina, Devin Dawson, Sara Evans, HARDY, Chris Janson, Lady A, Ashley McBryde, RaeLynn and Lee Ann Womack, with more likely to come.

Along with Pearce, they’ll be on hand to celebrate ACM Award winners not seen on the regular TV broadcast. But due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s show will highlight two years worth of those winners.

The evening will honor winners of the 55th ACM Industry Awards, 55th and 56th ACM Studio Recording Awards, and the 55th and 56th ACM Songwriter of the Year winner, Hillary Lindsey. Likewise, Luke Combs, Dan + Shay, Lady A, Loretta Lynn, Rascal Flatts and more will be recognized with special awards recognition, which you can read about here.

Circle Network’s social channels will be live streaming the 14th annual ACM Honors, taking place August 25, 2021, at 6:30 pm CT. Tickets are available now.
