Normally, we don't start talking about the weekend until Friday (mostly to keep ourselves from obsessing about it). This week, however, we're going to make an exception.
One of the biggest nights in country music will take place Sunday night. "The 43rd Annual Academy of Country Music Awards" airs live at 8 pm ET on CBS, with host Reba McEntire returning for the 10th time.
Besides the stellar list of performers a number of other artists are scheduled to make appearances, including Clint Black, Brooks & Dunn, Sara Evans, Jewel, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, Clay Walker and Trisha Yearwood.
