The Academy of Country Music has just announced that this year there will be performances from each of the "Entertainer of the Year" nominees. 

Great news if you're itchin' to see Jason Aldean, Taylor Swift, Toby Keith, Miranda Lambert, Keith Urban, and Brad Paisley tear it up in front of the crowd on Sunday, April 3rd at the MGM Garden Arena in Vegas.  The telecast will air live on CBS.

This marks the third consecutive year that fans will vote to select the winner of the highly-coveted "Entertainer  of the Year" Award.  Voting will begin on March 11th and continue up to the third hour of the actual broadcast at voteacm.com.

Same time, same place; you can vote for The ACM "Top New Artist."  That category has been narrowed down from the "Top Solo Vocalist" and "Top New Vocal Group or Duo" categories.  Fans gave those awards to Eric Church and The Band Perry, and now you'll decide which of the two gets the "Top New Artist" Award.

So who's taking home the big prizes this year?
