NASHVILLE, TENN. (AP) - Two of country music’s hottest rising stars will headline The Academy of Country Music’s annual weekend concerts in Las Vegas this year.

Luke Bryan and Eric Church will perform March 30-31 at the Fremont Street Experience, the popular sixth annual show that’s free to the public. Bryan will headline Friday’s show and Church will handle Saturday. The rest of the lineup will be announced later.

The ACM Awards follow on April 1, live from the MGM Grand and Mandalay Bay on CBS. Reba McEntire and Blake Shelton host.

Bryan and Church are coming off the most successful years of their careers. Church’s “CHIEF” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 all genre chart, and Bryan’s “tailgates & tanlines” hit No. 2.
