Country music stars Miranda Lambert and Ronnie Dunn, who both have Oklahoma ties, will announce next week the nominees for the 46th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards.
The nominees will be announced Tuesday from the Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum in Nashville, Tenn., during a live press conference beginning at 7:30 a.m.
Lambert, who won her second ACM album of the year last year, lives in Tishomingo. Dunn, who won many ACMs as half of now-defunct duo Brooks & Dunn, is a former Tulsa resident.
The ACM Awards will be broadcast live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas at 7 p.m. Sunday, April 3 on the CBS Television Network.
Reba McEntire, who hails from Chockie, and Blake Shelton, Lambert’s fiance and fellow Tishomingo resident, will co-host the show.
