Country Music's Party of the Year just got even better.

The Academy of Country Music announced its first group of performers on Tuesday and fans are sure to recognize a few familiar faces.

Miranda Lambert, Maren Morris, Thomas Rhett, Chris Stapleton and George Strait are just a few of the stars expected to take the stage. Brothers Osborne, Kane Brown, Little Big Town and Reba McEntire are set to perform, as well.
