The 53rd annual ACM Awards air April 15 on CBS.

Chris Stapleton could win Male Vocalist of The Year.

Carrie Underwood has shared the first up-close photo of her face since a frightful fall past year that left her with a broken wrist and more than 40 stitches in her face. The Best Vocal Group of the Year victor was announced before show time, as was the New Female Vocalist of the Year victor and the New Male Vocalist of the Year recipient.

Jason Aldeanwas on stage the night of October 1 when a gunman opened fire on the outdoor music festival from the window of an adjacent resort hotel.

The goal for this year's award show is effectively the same as every other year before it: To try and entertain in however way possible.

The City boss has said about Silva: "Next season, David maybe will not play every game, that's why the squad has to be big". But an impressive 14-game unbeaten run in the league - going back to the reverse fixture at City in December - is over.

The 35-year-old country star posted a smiling selfie on Instagram Saturday evening (April 14) that shows no visible damage or scarring to her face.

"He's the one artist who gives you chills when you're listening to him perform", she said. McEntire is a 16-time ACM award victor, and she's among the singers competing for Female Vocalist of the Year. 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.

Fans were elated at the news that McEntire would return to the ACM Awards stage. "Maren Morris could win this year and that could be a huge upset". With this new feature, this year's awards telecast will recognize three of country music's hit songs from 1993, with Shelton teaming with fellow Oklahoman Toby Keith to perform Keith's celebrated No. 1 debut single "Should've Been a Cowboy", Alan Jackson and Jon Pardi performing Jackson's ACM Award-winning hit "Chattahoochee", and Reba and Kelly Clarkson performing Reba's Grammy Award-winning hit "Does He Love You". Those who are up for Vocal Duo of the Year are Brothers Osborne, Dan + Shay, LOCASH, Florida Georgia Line and Tim McGraw with wife Faith Hill.

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.
