Keith Urban and Luke Bryan are among the performers scheduled for tonight’s American Country Awards. Co-hosted by Kristin Chenoweth and Trace Adkins, the show airs live on FOX at 8p|7c. Fans can expect something very special from Keith’s performance.

“We did a show a few years back and brought some of the GRAMMY kids who do the GRAMMY camp to sing with us, and we had such a good time with ‘em, I thought we’d do it again on the ACAs,” he said. “They’re going to be giving, I think, about $25,000 to the GRAMMY Foundation, which I’m involved in, so it was a perfect opportunity to bring them onstage and let ‘em play, because that’s what it’s all about.”

Luke Bryan is not only looking forward to performing on the show, he’s also excited to be nominated and, well, to be ‘Luke Bryan’ in general. He’s not letting his recent success or award nominations go to his head, though.

“My main thing is to never get too caught up in what you are and what you’re not,” he said. “I think just trying to stay the same and continue to give music that people are wanting that’s new and fresh, but also it’s something they can count on. I mean, you never want to refer to yourself in the third person, but you want people to know what a ‘Luke Bryan’ song is gonna be when they hear it.”

Rascal Flatts, Kip Moore, Jake Owen, Jason Aldean, Lady Antebellum, Dierks Bentley and Little Big Town  are also scheduled to perform during the show. The ACAs will feature appearances by Miranda Lambert, Natasha Bedingfield, Ron White, cowboy Trevor Brazile,  Scotty McCreery, Lauren Alaina, Casey James, LeAnn Rimes, Lee Brice, Jana Kramer, Dustin Lynch and Chris Young.
