The Las Vegas-based band are tied with Lorde for the most nominations at this year’s event that is scheduled to take place on Sunday, May 18 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on ABC at 8 p.m. ET.

For fans of country music, tonight will be another night full of rocking country songs and awards for the best of the best in that genre of music.

While the laundry list of performers is enough for a country fan to tune in, the list of presenters aren’t that far off either. Presenters include, Gary Allan, Faith Hill, Shania Twain, Trisha Yearwood, Chris Young, Eli Young Band and many more.
