Brad Paisley, Brooks & Dunn and Sugarland lead the field of nominees for the 41st Academy of Country Music Awards, live from Las Vegas on CBS, beginning at 8 p.m. ET.

Brad has six ACM nominations, while Brooks & Dunn and Sugarland are right behind with five apiece. Brooks & Dunn will be going up against Kenny Chesney, Keith Urban, Toby Keith and Rascal Flatts in the night's most hotly-contested category, Entertainer of the Year. Reba McEntire hosts the show, which promises plenty of star performances. Here's what to look for:

  • Brad Paisley opening the telecast with his latest hit, "The World."
  • Two performances by Keith Urban—Keith performs his hit "Tonight I Wanna Cry," and appears as a surprise guest with another artist.
  • Rascal Flatts singing with former American Idol champ Kelly Clarkson on the group's hit "What Hurts the Most."
  • Big & Rich performing "8th of November," featuring an appearance by 40 active soldiers and eight veterans from four different wars.
  • A tribute to the legendary Buck Owens, starring Brad Paisley and Dwight Yoakam.
  • Dierks Bentley performing "Settle for a Slowdown," which just hit No. 1.
