    Stars like Luke Bryan, Gwen Stefani, Blake Shelton, Carrie Underwood, Dan + Shay, Florida Georgia Line, and more will perform at the Opry. Meanwhile, Maren Morris, Kelsea Ballerini, Thomas Rhett, and Gabby Barrett among others will have their performances at the stage of Ryman Auditorium. Further, Miranda Lambert, Tim McGraw and more will be singing from the Bluebird Café.

    As reported earlier, Taylor Swift will be performing “Betty” at the ceremony.
