The photo arrived ahead of her appearance on the ACM Awards on Sunday.

The song feels especially meaningful, Bryan said, in the wake of the devastating Route 91 Harvest Festival shooting in Las Vegas last October.

During the 2018 ACM Awards on Sunday night (April 15), artist and country music industry members will be wearing gold pins with the numbers 851, 58 and 1. After a more than a decade spent with Sony Music Nashville, Underwood switched to Universal Music Group a year ago. She is nominated twice, both as artist and songwriter, in the Song of the Year category for her heartbroken ballad "Tin Man", and for Video of the Year for her playful anthem "We Should Be Friends". One of her hottest performances of all time was at the 2016 CMA Awards.

Another tough category is Vocal Duo of the Year.

As usual, the Female Vocalist of the Year contest is crowded with Sooner State favorites. While it is not a completely clear image, it is the closest photo of Carrie Underwood since the facial injury that required over 40 stitches. Meanwhile, Tim and Faith McGraw released their first album together.

Although Salah has stolen numerous headlines at Anfield this season, he is not alone in his devastating attacking endeavours. You show the boys and they see this. "He didn't look today like he doesn't want to score in the next few games".

In the caption of the Instagram photo, Carrie Underwood stated that she had a great rehearsal for her ACM awards performance where she is set to perform her new single "Cry Pretty". If she wins, it would be the Chockie native's eighth victory in the category. The track's producer, Scott Hendricks, also is an Oklahoma native. "Maren Morris could win this year and that could be a huge upset".

Other performers include Dierks Bentley, Ballerini, Lauren Alaina, Kane Brown, Dan + Shay, Chris Janson, Midland, Jon Pardi, Darius Rucker, Brett Young and Chris Young.

Country music fans can soon look forward to the upcoming 2018 Academy of Country Music Awards, country music's biggest night of the year.

Expect to see a number of familiar faces presenting like "The Ranch" stars Sam Elliott and Ashton Kutcher, Kiefer Sutherland, "The Talk" host Eve, Olympic Alpine Skier Lindsey Vonn, actress Rebecca Romijn, and New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees.
