Nashville is coming to Los Angeles for one of the biggest nights in country music!

The 2016 American Country Countdown awards will air live from the Forum on May 1, and the show will definitely see a slew of A-list celebrities considering the list of finalists that were just announced on Wednesday.

Luke Bryan leads the pack with seven nods in different categories, followed closely by Sam Hunt with five and Zac Brown Band and Thomas Rhett with four. Other key nominees include Carrie Underwood—who was also added as a performer—and Florida Georgia Line.
