NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Already busy co-hosts Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan also will perform during this year's Academy of Country Music Awards.

The country cut-ups are among the first round of performers announced Wednesday for the annual awards show in Las Vegas. They'll be joined by Shelton's wife, Miranda Lambert, George Strait, Hunter Hayes and The Band Perry.

Pop star and former "American Idol" champion Kelly Clarkson, a two-time ACM winner in 2012 and a nominee this year, also will perform as she continues to increase her country profile since moving to Nashville.

Eric Church is this year's top nominee with seven nominations. Hayes is next with six.

The ACM Awards will air live April 7 on KHOU-TV from the MGM Grand.

More performers and presenters will be announced later.
