Days ahead of one of country music's biggest nights, the Academy of Country Music has added a handful of new performers to its already extensive list of talent, including some special performances and never-before-seen collaborations.

At the top of the list, the night's top nominee, HARDY, will make his ACM performance debut, while reigning ACM Female Artist of the Year Carly Pearce is set to team up with Trisha Yearwood for a star-studded medley of Yearwood's biggest hits. The joint set will serve as a celebration of the 25th anniversary of her Female Artist of the Year win.

The ACM stage will also see Cole Swindell and Jo Dee Messina perform their ACM Award-nominated hit, 'She Had Me At Heads Carolina', as well as a powerhouse collaboration by Ashley McBryde with Brandy Clark, Caylee Hammack, Pillbox Patti and John Osborne as the group sings 'Bonfire At Tina’s'.

The new additions come shortly after the news that British popstar Ed Sheeran will also be on hand in Texas to make his ACM Awards debut. Though nothing has yet to be confirmed about this unique appearance, we can rest assured that it'll be a truly unmissable moment.

This newest crew joins the previously announced slew of high-profile performances from the likes of Luke Combs, Lainey Wilson, Miranda Lambert, Cody Johnson, Kane Brown, Bailey Zimmerman, Jelly Roll, The War and Treaty, Jason Aldean and more.
