There has not been a release of the songs that will be performed, but Lambert, Ingram and Randall are said to play a song from their joint album "The Marfa Tapes" thats comes out on May 7th. As well as a possibility from the recent single from Lambert and King, "Drunk (and I Dont Wanna Go Home)."
The ACM awards have also scheduled four black artists this year after receiving messages from fans and artists that there was not enough artists of color in country. Some of the artists set to perform are Kane Brown who is nominated for album of the year, the duo The War and Treaty and CeCe Winans who is said to perform with country music icon Carrie Underwood.

A notable singer was not on the lineup this year who had his album "Dangerous: The Double Album" spend 10 weeks on Billboards 200 chart. Morgan Wallen had videos go viral of him using the N-word, which had resulted in the ACM holding him from any nominations all together.
The show will take place in three separate locations around Nashville that include the Grand Ole Opry House, Ryman Auditorium and The Bluebird Cafe.
Keep your calendars open for April 13 from 8-11pm ET as the ACM Awards will begin its 2021 debut on CBS. You can watch it live or stream on Paramount+.
