Nash Country Pulse Poll helps predict ACM award winners

Luke Bryan and Dierks Bentley on Hosting ACM Awards ‘It’s Game On

The Academy of Country Music has announced additional performers, presenters and an unprecedented number of duos and special collaborations for the 52nd Academy of Country Music Awards (ACM Awards), Country Music's Party of the Year.

Radio Ink congratulates Lon on this latest award, and his many years of service and entertainment.

While this will be Bryan's fifth time hosting the show, that doesn't mean he's perfected his craft, at least according to Bentley.

If you don't have an account yet, you can sign up for a free 7-day trial to watch the show tonight. These two guys may be the faces of Top 40 country's pop sound, but they clearly have a deep respect for Merle's music.

Nominees for female vocalist of the year are Kacey Musgraves, Kelsea Ballerini, Lambert, Underwood and Morris, who recently won a Grammy for her hit song, "My Church".

For the second year in a row, Bentley and Bryan will partner up to host the ACM Awards, which brings Nashville's biggest names to Las Vegas. The ACM Awards will air on CBS and will also be live-streamed on CBS All Access. After all, when it comes to country music, it's all about the fans.

The star-studded affair is scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. ET.

The 2017 ACM nominees are led by Keith Urban who has seven nominations, followed by Miranda Lambert and Maren Morris, each with six; while Tim McGraw and Florida Georgia Line have five nominations.

In addition to a solo performance, Dierks Bentley will join Cole Swindell to perform "Flatliner".
