[via press release from CBS]

JASON ALDEAN, LUKE BRYAN, KENNY CHESNEY, ERIC CHURCH, TOBY KEITH, MIRANDA LAMBERT AND TIM McGRAW TO PERFORM AT THE "47th ANNUAL ACADEMY OF COUNTRY MUSIC AWARDS," TO BE BROADCAST LIVE FROM LAS VEGAS SUNDAY, APRIL 1 ON THE CBS TELEVISION NETWORK

Entertainer of the Year nominee Jason Aldean, Album of the Year nominee Luke Bryan, four-time Entertainer of the Year Kenny Chesney, rising country music star Eric Church, two-time Male Vocalist of the Year Toby Keith, reigning Female Vocalist of the Year Miranda Lambert and 14-time ACM Award winner Tim McGraw are scheduled to perform at the 47th ANNUAL ACADEMY OF COUNTRY MUSIC AWARDS, co-hosted by Reba and Blake Shelton. The ceremony, which honors country music's top talent as well as the industry's hottest emerging artists, will be broadcast live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas Sunday, April 1 (8:00 PM-11:00 PM, live ET/delayed PT) on the CBS Television Network.

Jason Aldean is nominated for six awards, including his second consecutive nods for Entertainer of the Year and Male Vocalist of the Year. He is nominated for Album of the Year for My Kinda Party, and has nominations for Single Record of the Year and Vocal Event of the Year for "Don't You Wanna Stay," featuring Kelly Clarkson. He is also nominated for Video of the Year for "Tattoos on This Town."

Luke Bryan is one of the fastest rising stars in country music. He is celebrating success with his Platinum-selling hits "Country Girl (Shake It For Me)" and his recent #1 smash, "I Don't Want This Night to End," both from his gold-certified third studio album, tailgates & tanlines. Currently on the road with Jason Aldean's record-breaking My Kinda Party Tour, Bryan continues to prove why he's Nashville's next superstar.

Kenny Chesney is nominated for nine awards, including Entertainer of the Year, a category he has won four times since 2004. He is also nominated for Male Vocalist of the Year, a category he has been nominated for 10 times previously. He is twice nominated for Album of the Year for Hemingway's Whiskey, as both artist and producer, and also earned double nominations for Single Record of the Year and Vocal Event of the Year as both artist and producer for "You and Tequila" with Grace Potter. Chesney is also nominated for Song of the Year for "You and Tequila" with Grace Potter.

Eric Church is nominated for two awards, including Album of the Year and Video of the Year for "Homeboy." Church is one of the brightest and boldest stars to emerge in country music in years. With his third album, CHIEF, topping both the Country and Top 200 Billboard charts in 2011, Church is anything but formulaic. He continues to make his mark out on the road with his raucous live shows, played for sold out crowds across the country. Showcasing his hits like his current single, "Springsteen," the #1 "Drink In My Hand" and Top 20's "Homeboy" and "Smoke A Little Smoke," fans can catch Church in 2012 on his arena-headlining The Blood, Sweat & Beers Tour.

Toby Keith is nominated for three awards, including Video of the Year for "Red Solo Cup," an honor he last won in 2003 for "Beer For My Horses." He also received a double nomination as artist and producer for Single Record of the Year for "Red Solo Cup." Keith has won 10 ACM Awards, including two wins for Entertainer of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year and Album of the Year.

Miranda Lambert is nominated for two awards, including Female Vocalist of the Year and Album of the Year. If Lambert wins Female Vocalist of the Year, it would be her third consecutive win in that category. She has won nine ACM Awards, including two wins for both Female Vocalist of the Year and Album of the Year. Lambert is the only female artist in the Academy's history to ever win Album of the Year twice, first for Crazy Ex-Girlfriend in 2007 and again for Revolution in 2009.

Tim McGraw has won 14 ACM Awards and has been honored by the Academy with a Career Achievement Award with Faith Hill in 2006. McGraw has sold more than 40 million units and dominated the charts with 32 #1 singles. With 7.8 million spins at radio, McGraw was deemed "Artist of the Decade" (2000-2010) by Nielsen Broadcast Data Systems. His 11th studio album, Emotional Traffic, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Country Chart, making it his 13th career #1 debut. This June, McGraw will kick off what is anticipated to be the biggest stadium tour in country music history with his old friend Kenny Chesney. McGraw is also an accomplished actor, having starred in films such as the Academy Award-nominated blockbuster "The Blind Side" and the critically-acclaimed "Friday Night Lights."

The 47th ACADEMY OF COUNTRY MUSIC AWARDS is produced for television by dick clark productions. Orly Adelson and R.A. Clark are executive producers. Barry Adelman is producer, and Bob Bardo is the executive in charge of production. Bob Romeo is executive producer for the Academy of Country Music.
