The massive country music party in Las Vegas April 1 just got even more massive. The Academy of Country Music announced today that Carrie Underwood, Sara Evans, and Keith Urban will now perform during the 47th annual ACM Awards. They are joining an already-stellar lineup of award-show performers that includes Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney, Eric Church, Toby Keith, Miranda Lambert, Tim McGraw, Blake Shelton, Chris Young, The Band Perry, Lady Antebellum and Rascal Flatts. Phew!

Sara Evans is nominated for the ACM Female Vocalist of the Year, an award she won back in 2005. She is currently riding the success of her latest album, A Little Bit Stronger, her first in six years.

Carrie Underwood has won an impressive 10 ACM Awards so far, including two Entertainer of the Year nods. This year marks the seventh time in a row she’s been nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year, an award she’s already won three times.
