The 55th Academy of Country Music Awards host Keith Urban will take the stage during the annual celebration for an incredibly special performance. The singer has enlisted pop icon P!nk for a collaboration on their song “One Too Many,” featured on Urban’s upcoming record The Speed of Now Part 1.

The live performance marks the world premiere of the track and the first-ever television performance of the song, which will release on September 18 with the new album.

Urban and P!nk’s performance is just one of the many incredible acts taking the stage and making this year’s celebration one of the biggest and most ciaunique. In another announcement, the ACM revealed that Entertainer of the Year nominees Carrie Underwood, Luke Combs, Thomas Rhett, Keith Urban and Luke Bryan will open the show for a very special medley of their greatest hits.

For the first time in seven years, Taylor Swift will take the ACM Awards stage to perform “betty” from her surprise album folklore.

Additionally, the ACM announced the winners of three off-camera categories early Monday morning (9/14): Songwriter of the Year, Music Video of the Year and Music Event of the Year.

Hillary Lindsey was named ACM Awards Songwriter of the Year, while Thomas Rhett earned ACM Awards Music Video of the Year for “Remember You Young.” Miranda Lambert, Maren Morris, Ashley McBryde, Tenille Townes, Caylee Hammack and Elle King were named the ACM Awards Music Event of the Year winners for their collaboration on “Fooled Around and Fell in Love.”

The 2020 ACM Awards also marks the first time in its history that the show will take place in Nashville, TN. Typically scheduled in Las Vegas, NV in April, the show was postponed due to the heightened coronavirus pandemic. It was later rescheduled for September 16 in Nashville and will take place across three venues: the Bluebird Cafe, the Ryman Auditorium and the Grand Ole Opry House.
