Five weeks to go until the epicenter of country music rests in North Texas.

The 50th annual Academy of Country Music Awards will take over AT&T Stadium April 19, with the two-day Party for a Cause festival overtaking Globe Life Park April 17-18, and the benefit galas in Dallas and Fort Worth entertaining the charitable April 17.

Earlier today, the ACM Awards unveiled the list of performers who will appear on the national broadcast, and describing it as “star-studded” doesn’t quite do it justice.

Just consider this roster of talent: Garth Brooks, George Strait, Reba McEntire, Miranda Lambert (who leads the pack with eight nominations), Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney, Eric Church, Blake Shelton, Keith Urban, Florida Georgia Line, Sam Hunt, Thomas Rhett and Cole Swindell are set to perform at AT&T Stadium April 19.

Per a statement from event organizers, Strait will be debuting new music, and McEntire’s appearance marks her first on the ACMs in five years.

Ticket packages for the awards telecast and Party for a Cause are on sale now.
