Just days before the broadcast of the 53rd Annual ACM Awards hits televisions across America, Sugarland joined the group of talented presenters for the ceremony.

The duo, who made a massive reunited comeback during 2017, will continue their path back into country music by taking on the role of presenter during the show. Although it’s unknown what award or performance they will introduce, Sugarland seems quite excited to hang out with all of their friends in the genre yet again.

Other presenters for the night include country singers Cam and Dustin Lynch, actors Ashton Kutcher, David Boreanaz and Max Theriot, host Nancy O’Dell, athletes Drew Brees and Lindsey Vonn among many more familiar faces.

Another big announcement prior to “The Week Vegas Goes Country” comes with the addition of Chris Janson to the star-studded list of performers. The singer can’t wait to energize the celebrity crowd like he does during all of his live shows by performing one of his rowdier tracks.

“I am extremely excited to play on this year’s ACM Awards show. I’ll be playing a crowd favorite from my Everybody album, titled ‘Redneck Life.’ It’s a true story; it’s rowdy and it’s gonna be a blast to play live,” Janson said in a press release.

Janson tags on to the line-up for the night, which will plan for performances from Kenny Chesney, Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town, Lady Antebellum, Kelsea Ballerini, Brett Young and a number of other artists.

Collaborations for the celebration will make up a big part of the ACM Awards, with Keith Urban and Julia Michaels teaming up for their song, “Coming Home,” as well as Florida Georgia Line welcoming Bebe Rexha to the stage for their mega-hit, “Meant to Be.” Jon Pardi and Alan Jackson, Lauren Alaina and Kane Brown and Blake Shelton and Toby Keith will also do their teamwork things together.

The 53rd Annual ACM Awards will air live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, April 15, at 8 p.m. EST on the CBS Television Network.
