Carried Underwood has shared one other photograph of her face forward of her extremely anticipated efficiency on the American Nation Music Awards.

The Academy of Country Music Awards will debut "ACM Flashbacks" to honor classic country music hits and the artists whose music continues to influence musicians and fans alike.

The singer said that the single feels especially meaningful amid the devastating Route 91 Harvest Festival mass shooting in Las Vegas in October 2017.

"We are going to give recognition and tribute to the folks of the tragedy that happened here in Vegas not too long ago because a lot of our family in the country music business was involved", McEntire says.

The 53rd annual ACM Awards will be air on CBS on April 15, Sunday.


Nicholasville's TK McKamy is up for video of the year at the 2018 ACM Awards for Thomas Rhett's "Marry Me". It will mark her first time back on stage after an accident in November.

Among the nominees with Oklahoma ties, Garth Brooks, who was born in Tulsa and grew up in Yukon, is nominated for the top award, Entertainer of the Year. The American Idol victor shared the first close-up selfie of her face after her facial injury back in November a year ago, reports Entertainment Tonight.

Chris Stapleton has the most nominations for the night, up for eight trophies. Those who are up for Vocal Duo of the Year are Brothers Osborne, Dan + Shay, LOCASH, Florida Georgia Line and Tim McGraw with wife Faith Hill.

The Female Vocalist for this year is a tough list of nominees. Revealed presenters for the event include Drew Brees, Ashton Kutcher, Nancy O'Dell, Rebecca Romijn, Sugarland member Jennifer Nettles with Kristian Bush, Keifer Sutherland and Lindsey Vonn. Those up for Song of the Year this year are the songs "Body Like a Back Road", "Female", "Tin Man", and "Whiskey and You".

McEntire hosted several times between 1986 and 1999, then hosted every year from 2001-2012, sometimes with a co-host.
