NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) —
Already busy co-hosts Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan also will perform
during this year's Academy of Country Music Awards.

The country
cut-ups are among the first round of performers announced Wednesday for
the annual awards show in Las Vegas. They'll be joined by Shelton's
wife, Miranda Lambert, George Strait, Hunter Hayes and The Band Perry.

Pop
star and former “American Idol” champion Kelly Clarkson, a two-time ACM
winner in 2012 and a nominee this year, also will perform as she
continues to increase her country profile since moving to Nashville.

The
ACM Awards will air live April 7 on CBS from the MGM Grand. Eric Church
is this year's top nominee with seven nominations. Hayes is next with
six.

More performers and presenters will be announced later.
