LUKE BRYAN, CHACE CRAWFORD, CELINE DION, THE JUDDS AND MIRANDA LAMBERT TO PRESENT AT THE "46th ANNUAL ACADEMY OF COUNTRY MUSIC� AWARDS," TO BE BROADCAST LIVE FROM LAS VEGAS, SUNDAY, APRIL 3 ON THE CBS TELEVISION NETWORK

Luke Bryan, Chace Crawford, Celine Dion, The Judds and Miranda Lambert 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.

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

Luke Bryan, the reigning 2010 ACM New Artist and New Solo Vocalist, released his sophomore album, Doin' My Thing, on Capitol Records Nashville in October 2009, debuting at #2 on the Billboard Country Albums chart. The Gold� certified album includes three consecutive #1 singles, "Do I," "Rain Is A Good Thing" and "Someone Else Calling You Baby." Bryan just released a new single, "Country Girl (Shake It for Me)," from his forth-coming album due out later this summer and is slated to open on the Tim McGraw "Emotional Traffic Tour" kicking off April 8.

Chace Crawford currently stars in the CW hit drama, "Gossip Girl." The talented young actor recently wrapped production on Bruce Beresford's film, "Peace, Love and Misunderstanding," in which he will star opposite Catherine Keener and Jane Fonda.

Celine Dion is an international pop superstar who has sold over 200 million albums and has garnered numerous accolades, including five GRAMMY� Awards. Early last year, Celine announced her three-year residency and return to The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas, the world-renowned venue where she was the first to grace its stage. When her first show, A New Day�, opened on March 25, 2003, it went on to not only become one of the most successful shows in Las Vegas, but also redefined the entertainment industry. Celine would become the first artist at the height of her career to stop touring and invite fans to come to her.

By the time the show closed on December 15, 2007, more than three million fans spanning six continents and 138 countries had seen the show. Celine's brand-new show, which opened March 15, has already received widespread critical acclaim from the world's foremost media and entertainment outlets, and is selling out faster than her previous five-year engagement.

The Judds are the ACM's most award-winning female duo, having won Vocal Duo of the Year seven years in a row, from 1984 through 1990, and Song of the Year in 1984 for "Why Not Me." Kentucky natives, The Judds are one of the most successful country music duos of all time, amassing 14 #1 hits and more than 60 industry awards. After launching their career with RCA Records in 1984, The Judds sold 20 million albums in just six short years. By 1989, The Judds were one of the top-grossing and most popular touring acts in America. At the height of their career, Naomi Judd announced she would have to retire from the music business due to health complications. Then, last year, Wynonna and Naomi reunited for their final tour, The Last Encore. The Judds invited cameras from the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) to join them behind the scenes and on separate buses as they prepared for their first tour together in 10 years. "The Judds" documentary series two-hour premiere debuts on Sunday, April 10 at 9:00 PM, ET, on OWN.

Miranda Lambert leads this year's Academy of Country Music Awards with seven nominations, including Female Vocalist and her first-ever nomination for Entertainer of the Year. In addition, Lambert was nominated for Single Record of the Year and Song of the Year for "The House That Built Me," and received two nominations for Video of the Year for "Only Prettier" and "The House That Built Me." She is nominated for Vocal Event of the Year with Sheryl Crow and Loretta Lynn for "Coal Miner's Daughter." Lambert is the reigning ACM Female Vocalist of the Year.

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.
