Country music is making a major return to Las Vegas with the 2018 ACM Awards, six months after a lone gunman killed 58 people at a country music festival in the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history.
"I really enjoy hosting", McEntire told Entertainment Tonight last month.
Carrie Underwood shared another photo of her healing face ahead of her first performance since her November 10 accident.
Lauren Alaina has already been announced as a victor at the ACM Awards, as Best New Female Vocalist of the Year.
Reba also shared her big plans to embrace Carrie with a big hug when she sees her with Eugene, Oregon's KVAL News.
She says anything can happen, but she's a little more confident with who deserves Male Vocalist of the Year. Not only were fans excited to see Underwood was making new music again, but they were also happy to see was once again sharing a photo of herself on social media again as she has kept selfies and pictures to a minimum since her fall. Her injuries included her wrist and her face, which reportedly needed over 40 stitches. "I was so concerned".
In addition to Janson, reunited duo Sugarland have been added as presenters.
"I honestly don't know how things are going to end up but I do know this: I am grateful".
Virgie native Josh Osborne is up for songwriting and producing awards at the 2018 Academy of Country Music Awards. They'd co-hosted for two years, and the clear replacement had to be McEntire, as she'd hosted the show for more than a decade before stepping down in 2013 to let Bryan and former co-host Blake Shelton take the reins. She wrote in the caption, "Getting ready for the weekend...#CryPretty #ACMawards". Many top country music stars have been honored with nominations at this year's iteration of the venerable awards show too, with Chris Stapleton at the front of the pack with eight nominations in total.
Underwood will debut her new single on the 53rd Academy of Country Music Awards Sunday.
