Time continues to tick down toward the surprises and sensational moments of the 53rd Annual ACM Awards, in which country music’s hottest stars will show off their talent throughout the ceremonious evening.

Rather than stick it out alone during the performances on stage, many artists are opting to create some wild collaborations to spice up the night. While Reba will perform her GRAMMY-winning hit, “Does He Love You” with pop singer Kelly Clarkson, Keith Urban plans to team up with Julia Michaels for a genre-binding rendition of their track, “Coming Home.”

Toby Keith and Blake Shelton will combine their country star power to bring the twang back to the party, and Jon Pardi will achieve a bucket list goal by playing alongside country legend Alan Jackson. Kane Brown and Lauren Alaina hope to harmonize with one another when they put on a show for “What Ifs,” and Florida Georgia Line introduces Bebe Rexha to the format with a performance of their top single, “Meant to Be.”

Other singers added onto the lineup for the ACM Awards include Chris Young, Dan + Shay and Darius Rucker. Previously, the show also let fans know that Kenny Chesney, Little Big Town, Jason Aldean, Kelsea Ballerini and Lady Antebellum will also lend their voices to the program.

The 53rd Annual ACM Awards, hosted by Reba herself, will broadcast live from Las Vegas on Sunday, April 15, at 8 p.m. EST on the CBS Television Network.
