The ceremony, which honors country music's top talent as well as the industry's hottest emerging artists, is produced for television by dick clark productions.

The aforementioned artists join previously announced performers Jason Aldean, Toby Keith, Miranda Lambert, Brad Paisley, Taylor Swift and Keith Urban�all of whom are Entertainer of the Year nominees.

Performers:

Alabama has won an astounding 20 Academy of Country Music (ACM) Awards, including six times for Vocal Group of the Year and five times for Entertainer of the Year, and was named Artist of the Decade in 1988. Alabama will perform with Entertainer of the Year nominee Brad Paisley.

Dierks Bentley is nominated for Album of the Year for Up on the Ridge. Bentley won New Artist of the Year in 2003.

Ronnie Dunn helped define the country landscape over the past 20 years as one half of the most successful duo in country music history. He now builds on his 30-million-selling album history as part of Brooks & Dunn with his Arista Nashville solo debut album, slated for release later this year. The album's stirring first single, "Bleed Red," is available now.

Sara Evans debuted at #1 on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart this past week with the release of her sixth studio album, Stronger, featuring her current smash, the RIAA-certified Gold Digital Single, "A Little Bit Stronger." A past ACM Female Vocalist winner, Evans' chart-topping career includes more than five million albums sold and such #1 hits as "Suds in the Bucket," "A Real Fine Place to Start," "No Place That Far" and "Born to Fly."

Martina McBride is a three-time Female Vocalist winner and was also awarded the Humanitarian Award in 2003 for her charitable work. During the "Girls' Night Out: Superstar Women of Country" special, which will be broadcast Friday, April 22 on CBS, McBride will be honored once again by ACM Lifting Lives (the ACM's charitable arm) for her dedication to raising social consciousness of domestic violence and encouraging female empowerment through songs.

Reba has won 12 ACM Awards, including seven wins for Female Vocalist of the Year, and was awarded the first-ever annual Academy of Country Music/The Home Depot Humanitarian Award for her outstanding philanthropic work. This broadcast will mark Reba's 13th time hosting the show.

Blake Shelton will make his debut this year as an ACM Award co-host with Reba. Shelton has been nominated for three ACM Awards and won his first ACM award last year for Vocal Event of the Year for his #1 hit single, "Hillbilly Bone," which features longtime friend Trace Adkins.

Over the course of his career, James Taylor has sold some 40 million albums and has earned 40 gold, platinum and multi-platinum awards. As a recording and touring artist inducted into both the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame and the prestigious Songwriter's Hall of Fame, Taylor has set a precedent for solo singer/songwriters and blazed a path to which countless numbers of earnest young musicians have since aspired.

Carrie Underwood is nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year. Having won a total of 10 ACM Awards, Underwood is the two-time reigning Entertainer of the Year and has won Female Vocalist three times.

Zac Brown Band is nominated for five awards, including Vocal Group of the Year and Album of the Year. Zac Brown Band is also nominated for Song of the Year, Single Record of the Year and Vocal Event of the Year for "As She's Walking Away," featuring Alan Jackson. Zac Brown Band will perform "Colder Weather" at the ACM Awards with one of their idols, James Taylor.
