[via press release from CBS]


Bethany Hamilton, Julianne Hough, AnnaSophia Robb and Chris Young are scheduled to present on the 46th ANNUAL ACADEMY OF COUNTRY MUSIC AWARDS, to be broadcast live from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Sunday, April 3 (8:00-11:00 PM, live ET/delayed PT) on the CBS Television Network. 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.

Hamilton, Hough, Robb and Young join previously announced presenters Reese Witherspoon, Robert Pattinson, Nancy O'Dell and Ryan Seacrest. In addition, Alabama, Dierks Bentley, Ronnie Dunn, Sara Evans, Martina McBride, Reba, Blake Shelton, Carrie Underwood and Zac Brown Band with James Taylor and Entertainer of the Year nominees Jason Aldean, Toby Keith, Miranda Lambert, Brad Paisley, Taylor Swift and Keith Urban have been announced as performers.

Hamilton has become a source of inspiration to millions through her story of faith, determination, and hope. On Oct. 31, 2003, Bethany was attacked by a 14-foot tiger shark while surfing off Kauai's North Shore. The attack took her left arm and seemed to end her career as a rising surf star just as it began; however, Bethany has been able to touch a large number of people with her message, charitable efforts and overall spirit. Her story will be seen on the big screen this April in "Soul Surfer."

Hough is a true triple-threat as a singer/actress/dancer known to millions of fans as the two-time professional dance champion on "Dancing With the Stars" before expanding into the worlds of music and film. Her self-titled debut album, released by Universal Music Group Nashville in 2008, hit the Billboard Country charts at #1 and entered the Billboard 200 at #3. Hough will next be seen in the remake of the classic movie musical, "Footloose," which is slated for release this October.

Robb is recognized as one of the elite young actresses in film today. Known for her roles in "Race to Witch Mountain," "Samantha: An American Girl Holiday" and "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory," Robb will next be seen on the big screen in her portrayal of Bethany Hamilton in "Soul Surfer."

Recently nominated for his first Grammy(R) Award for Best Male Country Vocal Performance with his hit, "Gettin' You Home," Young is gearing up to hit the road with Jason Aldean on his sold-out "My Kinda Party Tour" this summer. With his rich, warm baritone and penchant for writing relatable, slice-of-life songs, Young has emerged as a fan-favorite with three consecutive #1s on the radio and an album approaching gold. His new single, "Tomorrow," from his forthcoming album, NEON, which is set for release this summer, is quickly climbing the country charts.

The 46TH ANNUAL Academy of Country Music Awards is dedicated to honoring and showcasing the biggest names and emerging talent in the country music industry. The show is produced for television by dick clark productions. Orly Adelson and R.A. Clark are executive producers; Barry Adelman is the producer and Bob Bardo serves as the executive in charge of production.
