This will mark Reba’s 16th time as the host for the awards show, which is scheduled to take place on April 7th at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Reba has also been tapped to announce some of the nominees in a live television appearance on CBS Good Morning on February 20th, with additional nominees to be announced live on ET Online. The full list of nominations will be released immediately following on ACMcountry.com.
Reba will also release her forthcoming album Stronger than the Truth via Big Machine Records on April 5th, just two days before the awards show.
