Pulling double duty as the evening’s host, Urban will team up with the pop star for the world television premiere of their brand-new collaboration “One Too Many,” which will be featured on the country star’s forthcoming album, The Speed of Now, Part 1.
With the news, the two stars join the jam-packed roster of confirmed performances at the awards show, which includes Kelsea Ballerini, Dan + Shay, Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line, Tim McGraw, Carrie Underwood and more, with the nominees for entertainer of the year kicking off the evening with a medley. (Taylor Swift is also slated to return to the ACMs stage after seven years to perform country-leaning Folklore fan-favorite “Betty.”)
Lauren Alaina, Cam, Darius Rucker, Bobby Bones and Lily Aldridge are among the previously-announced presenters for the telecast. Meanwhile, Maren Morris and Thomas Rhett both lead the pack of nominees ahead of the big night, with five nods each.
For the first time in the awards show’s history, the ACMs will be broadcast live from Nashville, alternating socially distanced performances from a trio of country music institutions: Grand Ole Opry House, the historic Ryman Auditorium and The Bluebird Cafe.
The 55th ACM Awards will air live on Sept. 16 at 8 p.m. ET (delayed for the West Coast) on CBS and CBS All Access. (The show is produced by dick clark productions, which shares a parent company with Billboard.)
