Eric Church has been added to the performers lineup for the 49th Academy Of Country Music Awards, THR reports on Friday (March 14).

Toby Keith and Lady Antebellum with Stevie Nicks will also perform at the three-hour event. They join previously announced performers Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert, Blake Shelton, George Strait, Keith Urban, Florida Georgia Line and The Band Perry.

Bryan and Shelton will return as this year's dynamic hosts, live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. It will be broadcast on Sunday, April 6 at 8/7c on the CBS Network.

During a special performance with Florida Georgia Line, Bryan, who recently scored another No. 1 hit single with the emotional "Drink A Beer," will make an appearance at the 4th Annual ACM Fan Jam at the Mandalay Bay Events Center.

Lambert is this year's top contender, earning seven nods -- including for Female Vocalist, Single Record (for her rock-based "Mama's Broken Heart") and Vocal Event (for her collaboration with Keith Urban on "We Were Us"). In the Female Vocalist category, she faces off against Carrie Underwood, Taylor Swift, Sheryl Crow and Kacey Musgraves for the title.

Tim McGraw also leads the pack with seven nominations. Those include: Album Of The Year (for Two Lanes Of Freedom) and Single Record and Music Video (both for "Highway Don't Care," featuring Taylor Swift and Urban).

The awards ceremony is produced by Dick Clark Productions.

More performers and presenters will be revealed soon.
