The Academy of Country Music has revealed the first set of 2014 ACM Awards performers. The Academy announced the names of seven artists via their website on March 6.

The list includes some of the hottest names in country music today as well as a legendary performer who is hanging up his touring shoes this year. Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert, Keith Urban, The Band Perry, and the king himself, George Strait, will grace the stage of the MGM Grand Garden Arena, getting this year’s ACM Awards off to an exciting start.

Four of the artists named are Entertainer of the Year nominees: Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton, Miranda Lambert and George Strait. Taylor Swift is the final Entertainer of the Year nominee, but she has yet to be confirmed as a performer.

In addition to Entertainer of the Year nominees, Keith Urban and Jason Aldean have both been nomiated for Male Vocalist of the Year. The Band Perry is once again up for Vocal Group of the Year, as well as Video of the Year for “Better Dig Two.”

The 2014 ACM Awards will air on CBS on April 6 at 7:00 p.m. Central. For a full list of nominees, see “2014 ACM Awards nominees announced by celebrity guests.
