Combs' 2017 debut "This One's for You" is double platinum and his first five singles hit No. 1 on Billboard's country airplay chart. He's also nominated for male artist of the year at the ACMs.

McBryde's album "Girl Going Nowhere" was nominated for best country album at last month's Grammys and she earned a Daytime Emmy nomination last week for her performance on "CBS This Morning: Saturday." She is also nominated for female artist of the year.

LANCO, a group of five, released their first album "Hallelujah Nights" last year and are also nominated for group of the year.

ACM also announced that Underwood would also be performing during the awards show, which would be her first major TV appearance since giving birth to her second son, Jacob Bryan Fisher, in January with husband Mike Fisher.
