Blake Shelton and Toby Keith will join previously-announced performers Dierks Bentley and Keith Urban for a tribute to Glen Campbell at the upcoming 2016 ACM Honors.

The country acts will perform a medley of Campbell’s greatest hits, including “Rhinestone Cowboy.” The country icon will also be honored with the ACM Career Achievement Award at the event.

Lady Antebellum will host the 10th-annual ACM Honors, which will be taped on Aug. 30 at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium to air later, on Sept. 9 on CBS. Other performers include: Jason Aldean, Kelsea Ballerini, Luke Bryan, Cam, Maren Morris, Cole Swindell and Lady Antebellum.

At the event, Aldean will be honored with the Triple Crown Award, which is given to an artist who has won New Male/Female Vocalist of the Year, Male/Female Vocalist of the Year and Entertainer of the Year. The superstar won Entertainer of the Year earlier this year. Aldean joins an elite class of winners, as the Triple Crown Award has only been awarded to six artists in the past: Brooks & Dunn, Kenny Chesney, Mickey Gilley, Merle Haggard, Barbara Mandrell and Carrie Underwood.
