There will be tons of performances, including each Entertainer of the Year nominee will do a medley of their own hits. That’s Carrie Underwood, Eric Church, Luke Combs, Luke Bryan, and Thomas Rhett.
Taylor Swift will perform live for the first time in seven years. She will be in Nashville to sing “Betty” from her new Folklore album at the Grand Ole Opry House.
Keith Urban is set to perform a song off his upcoming album called “One Too Many,” featuring pop star P!nk.
Keith will also be hosting as performances will be taking place at three different Nashville locations because of safety protocols.
