Notably, this year, Underwood is slated to perform from the Grand Ole Opry and will honor trailblazing female Opry members by performing a medley of songs by Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, Barbara Mandrell, Martina McBride, Reba McEntire and Dolly Parton. Formerly, Underwood teamed up with McEntire and Parton to co-host last year’s competing CMA Awards. Underwood is further nominated for the ACM award for entertainer of the year, a prize she won at the ceremonies in 2009 and 2010.
