This Sunday, April 15th, Reba McEntire’s bringing the biggest country stars to Las Vegas as she hosts the 53rd Academy of Country Music Awards.

Country music legends-in-the-making like Chris Stapleton, Miranda Lambert, and Thomas Rhett each have a number of 2018 ACM Awards nominations — Stapleton has eight, Lambert has four, and Rhett has six nominations — and viewers will get to hear their favorite artists perform their latest chart-topping songs. Meanwhile, Carrie Underwood will also perform “Cry Pretty” for the first time.

But while Reba will be on stage as the 2018 ACM Awards host, it’s only one of the reasons she’ll be gracing the stage. Additionally, she’s nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year and she’s being honored as part of “ACM Flashbacks.” New this year, ACM is honoring hit songs from a particular year or the contributions to country music by artists or groups with special performances. This year, three big hits from 1993 are being honored: “Should’ve Been a Cowboy” by Blake Shelton, “Chattahoochee” by Alan Jackson, and Reba’s “Does He Love You.”

Blake Shelton and Jon Pardi will join Keith and Jackson, respectively, while Kelly Clarkson will team up with Reba again — the two toured in 2008 — for her song, which was originally sung with Linda Davis

While Reba should always be on shuffle, we’re going to need a refresher with these lyrics from azlyrics.com, ahead of the 2018 ACM Awards.
