Cliff Lipson/CBS ©2017 CBS Broadcasting, Inc. All Rights ReservedBrett Eldredge and Old Dominion are the latest additions to an ACM lineup that’ll leave you wondering how they can possibly squeeze this many performances into only three hours.

Sunday night’s show will also bring an unprecedented number of superstar collaborations and firsts. Tim McGraw and Faith Hill will perform their new single, “Speak to a Girl” for the first time, while Thomas Rhett will debut his new release that features Maren Morris, called “Craving You.” Florida Georgia Line teams up with Backstreet Boys for a medley that’s likely to include their collaboration on “God, Your Mama, and Me.”

New label mates Keith Urban and Carrie Underwood will do “The Fighter,” as tourmates Cole Swindell and Dierks Bentley deliver “Flatliner.” Christian artist Lauren Daigle will join Reba McEntire for a version of “Back to God.”

There will also be plenty of solo performances as well, by the likes of Jason Aldean, Kelsea Ballerini, Brothers Osborne, Luke Bryan, Lady Antebellum, Sam Hunt, Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town, Jon Pardi, Rascal Flatts, and Chris Stapleton.

Along the way, there’ll also be quite a few awards to pass out. Lauren Alaina, Kane Brown, Kacey Musgraves, ET‘s Nancy O’Dell, Jake Owen, Kellie Pickler, Darius Rucker, Miss America Savvy Shields and NASCAR drivers Elliott Sadler and Bubba Wallace will help with that.

You can catch all the action starting Sunday night at 8 p.m. ET on CBS. Luke Bryan and Dierks Bentley will host the 52nd Academy of Country Music Awards, which will air live from Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena for the very first time.

No Comments

This update has been issued to increase the severe weather risk level to Enhanced over portions of the southern Edwards Plateau, Rio Grande plains and western Hill Country. (Please see the graphic below). The Enhanced Risk area now covers the cities of Del Rio and Rocksprings.

…Severe Storms Possible This Evening through Early Wednesday Morning…

Area of Concern:

All of South Central Texas, but primarily near the I-35 corridor west to the Rio Grande.

Threats & Impacts:

Winds: Straight-line wind gusts up to 70 mph.

Hail: Hail up to 2 inches in diameter

Tornadoes: Isolated tornadoes possible.

Rainfall: 1 to 2 inches of rainfall across the Hill Country and Central Texas. 1/10 to 1 inch elsewhere.

Timing and Overview:

A storm system will bring a good chance of showers and storms to the region tonight. Conditions will be favorable for some storms to become severe, with the primary threats being damaging straight-line wind gusts and large hail. A lesser, but non-zero, threat for isolated tornadoes will exist. Some isolated pockets of heavy downpours are possible, however due to the speed of the system significant flash flooding impacts are not anticipated at this time.

We could see a few storms as early as late this afternoon across Val Verde and Edwards counties. However, most of the activity is expected late this evening and overnight.

The storms will continue east of the I-35 corridor Wednesday morning, however some models indicate a weakening trend during that time.

ABC/Image Group LAWhile we don’t know exactly when new music will be coming from Carrie Underwood, we do know there’s a major change on the way for her next album. The reigning CMA Female Vocalist of the Year is leaving her longtime label home, Arista Nashville, for Capitol Records Nashville.

“It’s so inspiring to me as an artist to feel this excited about the future….” Carrie said in a statement. “UMG shares the heart and passion I have for music as well as the drive, and their innovative spirit has shown that together the possibilities are endless.”

Carrie’s been signed to Arista since winning American Idol in 2005. Cindy Mabe, the President of UMG Nashville — Capitol’s parent company — was part of the team that launched her debut album, Some Hearts.

The Oklahoma native’s current single, “The Fighter,” happens to be a duet with her new label mate, Keith Urban. While Carrie hasn’t revealed the timeline for a new recording, she has said she’s turning her attention in that direction.
