Nashville is taking over Los Angeles!

The American Country Countdown Awards are coming to Hollywood in May, and E! News has your exclusive details on the big night, like which hitmakers fans can expect to see take the stage. 

Country superstars Luke Bryan, Florida Georgia Line and Thomas Rhett are all set to perform live during the award show on May 1, E! News can exclusively reveal. Go on, take a moment to "shake it for" Luke, shoot "bullets at the moon" a la FGL and/or crank up Thomas' "Die a Happy Man" to celebrate the news. We won't judge. 

The two-hour event will be held at the "Fabulous" Forum in Inglewood, and it'll be the first country music award show to air live from LA in more than 10 years.

Luke, Florida Georgia Line and Thomas are three of the biggest names in country music, with Luke—the reigning Academy of Country Music and Country Music Association Entertainer of the Year—placing 15 singles at No. 1, FGL has released four back-to-back, multi-week No. 1 singles, and Thomas, one of the genre's newer breakout artists, has had five back-to-back No. 1 singles.

This is the second-ever American Country Countdown Awards, with Luke and Florida Georgia Line performing at the inaugural ceremony back in 2014. And both were big winners that night, with Luke taking home Male Vocalist of the Year, FGL winning Group/Duo of the Year. Oh, and their duet, "This Is How We Roll," won Collaboration of the Year and Digital Song of the Year. Fingers crossed 2016 will also be a big year at the ACCAs for Luke and FGL, as well as Thomas!

This year's hosts, award finalists and additional performers will be announced at a later date. 

The American Country Countdown Awards will air live on Sunday, May 1 at 8 p.m. on Fox, and tickets for the event will go on sale tomorrow, March 22, on Ticketmaster.
